Do not fall for the ‘brunch’ trap while dieting
“I have been trying to lose weight recently, and since my friends asked me out for brunch, I’m able to combine breakfast and lunch into one. In this case, I can save some money, and avoid putting on weight, right?”
CheckCheckCin: Weekend brunch is indeed popular. It normally begins at 11am, and often involves western food, some in semi-buffet style. We cannot tell if it is going to help you save money, but it is certainly not going to be beneficial for your diet plan.
According to the ‘midnight-noon and ebb-flow doctrine (‘zi wu liu zhu’) in the Esoteric Scripture of the Yellow Emperor (‘huang di nei jing’), 7am – 9am is the time when the stomach meridian is active, where qi and blood circulate to aid digestion. Hence, it is the best time to have breakfast. If breakfast is delayed, there is high chance we might consume more than we need due to hunger, thus adding burden to the stomach.
It is advisable to have some warm breakfast in the morning, for instance, porridge, macaroni, and steamed rolls with mild sauce, to warm the stomach. This will also prevent you from eating excessively during brunch.
