As a nutrition specialist I'm always interested in the eating habits of golfers, which reflect general eating habits. I am a grazer. My preparation begins the night before. I carefully pack my lunch to take with me on the course. A few cherries or grapes for the morning snack, one more hour and I'll eat a few crystallized ginger pieces or some granola, another hour and I eat half of my chicken breast sandwich. I eat the other half about an hour later.
Some of the golfers I play with are fit, like me. I've noticed they pack take along snacks as well. The ones who are overweight never eat on the course. They'll drink an artificially sweetened, canned or bottled drink (I drink water) and maybe eat an energy bar, ladened with sugars and chemicals.
The key to weight maintenance or loss is not to quit eating, not to eat one gigantic meal a day, but to eat consistently throughout the day. This keeps your blood sugar at a decent level and stops you from getting ravenously hungry.
Pretend you are back in elementary school Remember to pack a lunch the night before and watch those pounds melt away.
