What are the Best Time to Eat Your Meals?

What are the best times of the day to eat? Well, the short answer is any day of the week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., which is when Island Fin Poke is open in Lake Nona.

All kidding aside, however, there’s an interesting discussion among dieticians, food enthusiasts, and health-conscious folks over when you should eat throughout the day. Nowadays, you have everything from the OMAD diet (one meal a day) to intermittent fasting, all the way to periodic grazing, where you would eat small meals almost ceaselessly.

Time to Eat – Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner

Breakfast is the meal that we skip most often, but this forces you to forgo helpful calories and sustenance that we need to endure physically demanding jobs. With that in mind, nutritionists recommend consuming at least a light breakfast shortly after rising. Most of us would do this sometime between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m.

What about lunch?

Human bodies normally experience peak metabolism some time between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., which is another way of saying, “it’s time to get again,” hence lunch time. While this might be the hungriest time of day for most folks, you should temper your caloric consumption, or risk experiencing the dreaded mid-afternoon crash. Therefore, it’s best to consume the most balanced meal at lunch, with an appropriate mixture of carbs, protein, and healthy fats.

When should you eat dinner?

Well, you can probably tell that the timing of your previous meals will influence this decision. Since you can only go so long without experiencing hunger pangs and lower productivity, you should plan to have dinner within five or six hours of eating lunch.

In summation, the purpose of timing your meals strategically is to avoid energy depletion throughout the day. If you eat the right amount of wholesome foods at the most appropriate times, you gain the best chance of staying alert and healthy rather than drowsy and famished.

Island Fin Poke: Late Breakfast through Evening Dinner

Like we said at the beginning, Island Fin Poke is open every day of the week from 11 a.m. (perhaps you could call it “brunch” Poke at 11). We keep going all the way until 9 in the evening.

Our goal is to provide ample opportunity to enjoy our novel Hawaiian food. We can even bring it to your work or residence if you’d like for us to cater a party or big event. You can’t go wrong with a tuna or salmon-inspired Poke Bowl anytime of the day.

So, if you can’t pinpoint the best times to sit down for a refreshing round of Poke, just drop by Island Fin Poke Lake Nona, and we’ll help you decide. You can learn more about catering, online ordering, or our other convenient services by calling 407-313-2827.
