Research has shown that not only is eating the right food important, but it also matters when you eat them. Here are some helpful tips to get the most out of your meals.
Start Your Day With Protein – A donut may be tasty or you think starting with a high-fiber cereal may be healthy, but research shows you’re better off starting the day with protein. So think eggs, meat and/or nuts.
Make Your Big Meal Lunch – Loading up in the middle of the day instead of dinner may help with weight loss. Studies show your body burns twice as many calories after a big midday meal than a later one.
Fiber Near the End of the Day Can Help You Sleep Better – Avoiding after-dinner snacks cam also help you sleep better (as well as being better for your waistline).

3. Digit Fatigue: Like "Text Neck," too much messaging can put a strain on your fingers and that can lead to inflamation and even arthritis. Again, use voice command software to give your tender digits a break,
