September 28, 2015 2 min read

Lunch doesn't seem to have a lot of rules. There's salads and there's sandwiches, but no one ever really questions why you're eating what you're eating. In fact, it seems to be the meal that you can get away with the most. Breakfast is dubbed the most important, while dinner tends to be the main event, with careful consideration given to how many carbs and calories you're consuming when little activity may follow. But what you eat in the middle of the day matters too, so stop overlooking it and learn the ways that you may be eating your meal wrong. 1.

Try eating a bigger breakfast that includes protein, then eat a small snack at noon, and enjoy your lunch a little later. 2. Your lunch is mainly carbs.Common lunch options are  sandwiches and chips, but giving yourself carb-heavy options only makes way for an energy crash which will then fuel food cravings mid-afternoon.
