One thing that we all know, that my trainer brought up once, is that we should not remain seated after eating. Move about, he said, after meals.
Indeed, after a full meal – particularly lunch – if I sit down, I can feel the growing weight of gravity pulling down from my stomach. And very soon, as you and I know it only too well – that gravity starts to affect your eyelidzzzzz……
So, to counter this a little, I’ve recently started eating right after I wake up. I get about 6:45 am or so, so generally by 7am I’ll have a bun or 1/2 a muffin or something light. After that comes my hour-long journey to office, during which I usually have to walk about 500 metres. So I think it’s a good practice.
Plus anyway, if you know what I eat nowadays for dinner, by morning I am usually S T A R V I N G.
