Recipes for lunch

According to my family & I, fat is easiest to burn around noon. That is why you can eat high carbohydrate meals with pasta, rice and co. for lunch. In addition, it is important to know: Thirst often masquerades itself as hunger. So drink plenty of fluids before lunch, especially water, then the lunch portions will automatically be smaller. And you should definitely stop eating when you’re full, even if you haven’t finished your plate. That’s the way to save unnecessary calories.
