9:17 am
you eat during the day to speed up your metabolism? should you eat a small meal every two hours, like a protein and a vegetable, or more typical schedule like three meals per day and two snacks? >> you'll get a slight rev in metabolism any time you eat anything. that's because your body has to work in order to digest food. now, that being said, as long as you're eating throughout the day, let's say every four to five hours versus not anything all day long and slamming your body with the majority of your calories later at night, it really doesn't matter how often you eat. the research is not definitive. and most studies show it doesn't cause a significant increase in metabolism or help with weight loss with one eating style, three meals, versus six mini meals. i think the bottom line s you just got to choose what is best for your personal lifestyle and for your food preferences and just make sure that at the end
9:18 am
of the day, your total calories are appropriate for whatever your weight management goal is. and there's one word of caution, i will say, if you decide to go the mini meal route, so that would be eating every two to three hours and totals about six to seven meals at the end of the day, be very careful with keeping the mini meals mini because they tend to grow into larger mini meals. you take in a lot of extra calories. the result is going to be weight gain. a good ballpark figure, if you're going the mini meal route, versus three square, is 200 to 250 calories per mini peel. whatever works for you will work for weight management. i hope that helps. >> yes, thank you so much. >> good luck. >> our next question -- our next question is from holly in jacksonville, florida, who's on the telephone. holly, what's your question? >> hi, joy. i've recently become an vegetarian and i wanted to find some great sources in nutrient i
9:19 am
might be missing such as protein or iron. i'm going to be using my university's dining hall this next speser and i was looking for good tips for choices i can make. >> because you're a lacto vegetarian it will be easier for you because you're allowing yourself to have cow's milk, dairy, and eggs. both of those items are high quality protein foods. there are other of high quality protein foods, the soy foods, soy nuts, tofu. quinoa is a great green because it offers up protein. you could also get veggie burgers at the campus dining hall or keep them in your freezer. most items are pretty inexpensive. when it comes to iron, all those protein foods with the exception of cow's milk, dairy, also have
9:20 am
protein. the beans and lentils. and also leafy green like swiss chard, item-fortified grains, cereals, dried fruit like apricots, raisins, figus and th baked potato with the skin, you get a little iron well. but to increase the absorption of that iron in the plant-based food you want to couple iron based food. the beans give you iron, tomatoes give you vitamin "c." if have you an iron-fortified cereal and add sliced strawberries, you get vitamin "c" from the strawberries. it's super simple. go out of your way to eat good and you'll be fine. >> third one, an e-mail from irene. she says, i'm a night shift
9:21 am
worker, how do you incorporate diet and exercise into your routine with all the diets you hear and read about deal with people -- i'm sorry, people that work a traditional shift? >> this question comes up a lot. it is totally doable to lose weight and eat healthfully when you have atypical schedule or hours. the key is to find a balanced plan and then to change the titles of meals. you don't feed to use breakfast lunch and dinner. call it meal one, meal two, meal throw. and then flip them around and eat them according to your hunger and your schedule. for example, meal one, you can have, no matter what it is within that plan, before you leave for work when you get up in the evening or the late afternoon. >> you might want to have dinner first and then end with dessert in. >> exactly. >> or breakfast. >> in the middle of your work shift you'll have meal two. when you come home in the morning, before you go to bed, you have meal three. another key thing is to pack one or two healthy snacks that you
9:22 am
could eat when you're most hungry during your work shift. in terms of exercise, get it in whenever you can. definitely on your days off it should be mandated. then if you can't find a 30-minute chunk of time to walk or do some sort of exercise, break it up into bite-sized pieces. ten minutes before you head off to your job, ten minutes during your shift, and then before you hit the sack at night, another ten minutes and it's done. >> joy bauer, thank you for your tips. still to come, the hottest summer fashion trends for every size and shape. motivational speaker extraordinaire tony robbins. y d! sure, why not? isn't this the yogurt that, you know... helps regulate your digestive system. ooh, i think i'll pass. no, no, no! trust me. it is beyond tasty. okay! mmm! wow! i can't believe it, i love it! mmm, this is really good! new best tasting activia ever! taste it, love it,
