body has been compromised by illness, such as with Parkinsons
Disease, it is no longer able to work as efficiently as it once
did. So, it is necessary that a person make life as easy for
their body as they possibly can. One of the ways that a person
can help is to eat smaller meals, more often. Become a "snacker"!
HIGH OCTANE SNACKER
It is far
better to eat 6 small "high octane food" meals a day,
than the usual 3 big ones in addition to a bunch of "trash"
snacks along the way. You see, if you only eat small meals,
your stomach size will gradually shrink, so that any amount
of food over your regular portion, will make you feel stuffed!
So I eat all my fruit, veggies, being careful to spread out
my "protein" in the first 3 meals of the day. I find
that animal protein is best consumed in the midday, so that
my system has a chance to process it before nightfall. I find
that cutting or grinding up my meat into tiny bits, allows my
stomach to digest it better. Its like "baby food"
all over again. I use ground up nuts and seeds with every meal
except at night. My late night snack, is fruit
and grapes in Jello.
gives me fruit, protein, and water. There is no great work for
my body to do while I am sleeping except repair itself with
the energy it gets from the Jello. If you eat small meals you
will have a small appetite and stomach. I try to limit bread
to 2 slices per day, as I find it constipating.
