Do you find it harder to stick to your diet at certain times of the day? You’re not alone, according to a survey conducted by Forza supplements
The th-ree most dangerous moments have been identified as 11.01am, 3.14pm and 9.31pm
• Dieters can consume as many as 750 calories during these three vulnerable times – wrecking their chances of losing weight;
• Coffee shops were identified as the biggest danger to dieters because even a simple latte from a high street chain is worth 190 calories;
Nutritionists say dieters should opt out of drinks rounds at work because they put themselves under peer-group pressure to consume unnecessary calories with colleagues.
The results are revealed in a new survey of 1,000 people by diet firm Forza Supplements.
The research demonstrated that there are three specific times in the day when we’re likely to throw out the healthy eating rule book: 11:01am, 3.41pm and 9:31pm. As much as 750 calories are consumed at these times of the day – enough to ruin even the strictest diet plan.
The findings point to key mistakes that dieters make. These include skipping breakfast (leading to making poor nutritional choices for an elevenses snack), tackling post-lunch stress with food, and succumbing to temptation late at night. The report also highlighted the high calorie count of an average coffee shop latte (190 calories).
Forza’s managing director Lee Smith, adds: ‘We are all becoming much more knowledgeable about nutrition and how to eat more healthily at traditional meal-times. It is at other vulnerable moments during the day – these Snack O’Clocks – when all the damage is done in diets.’
While there’s nothing wrong with snacking to keep energy levels up during the day, the study is useful in pointing out when we might make bad food decisions. Remember: preparation is key when sticking to a healthy eating plan. Be inspired by our round-up of nutritious snack ideas, instead.
