Today’s review is this @proteincookiemadness birthday cake cookies.
Macros per packet 📊
Price: I won these from @amyfloodfitness competition a while back! I have no idea on price or where to get.
Macros: protein cookies always on the steep side of macros. What I like about these is that you get two in a packet. Makes them seem that bit greater and as such more satiating. Not great macros but again hard to find a tasty protein cookie that does.
Texture/ taste: lovely texture in this. The covering of icing is sweet and crunchy. The sprinkles add aesthetics as well as texture and taste to it. The centre of the cookie is soft baked and is fairly nice. I don’t get a strong birthday cake flavour but it’s a nice flavour nonetheless.
Overall verdict: pretty decent cookie. 7.5/10
Meal timing -
The myth of eating every few hours speeds up your metabolism is well and throughly gone
For the majority of people looking to loose body fat and be healthy meal timing is not important
As long as we eat the right foods in the right amounts, meal frequency seems to be a matter of personal preference.
You can eat lots of small meals each day (i.e. every few hours). Or you can eat a few big meals each day (i.e. with bigger time gaps between them). And there’s almost no physiological difference.
There could be psychological differences, mind you. Which is why I highly recommend listening to your own body.
If you’re covering all your other bases and your current meal frequency isn’t working, try switching it up. Experiment with fewer meals if you eat more frequently. And more meals if you eat less frequently.
Because either approach is physiologically valid, you’re free to find the lifestyle approach that works best for you.
For most of us, most of the time, nutrient timing demands extra effort, requires additional planning, and adds dietary complexity… with minimal return.
Also, the best nutrient timing in the world won’t compensate for a poor-quality, mindless, and/or inconsistent intake.
My own experience on doing some of the below
2 meals - The only thing I would say is that bigger meals might hamper digestion
3 meals a day can lead to over eating as there will be long periods with our eating
4 meals- for me is ideal let’s me eat every 4 hours and still keeps blood sugars steady
5 meals - For me its a pain it means eating every 3 hours or so which is not sustainable for me and prepping that amount of meals is a lot of time.
Once your consistent with your nutrition on a daily basis don’t stress about how many meals or meal timing focus of calories & macros
