Eat a breakfast high in protein and fibre within two hours of waking up to jump start your metabolism.

Spread out your protein intake and include healthy fats and fibre in meals.

Eat a snack or small meal that includes protein, veggies or fruit, and a complex carbohydrate every three-to-four hours while awake.

Avoid eating meals with high amounts of fat and/or protein (e.g., a double-cheeseburger with fries and mayonnaise). These meals can make you feel sluggish as a result of blood rushing to your digestive organs to deal with the large amount of food and fat. Meals with high levels of fat and protein can also dramatically slow the release of carbohydrates (needed for energy) to your blood.

Avoid eating within two hours of sleeping to enhance your sleep and avoid gastrointestinal problems.
