According to Healthline, The right time to eat your afternoon meal, or lunch, can vary depending on your schedule and preferences. However, some general guidelines can help you determine the optimal time for your lunch.
In terms of timing, it's recommended to have lunch between 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM. This aligns with the body's natural circadian rhythms, which typically cause hunger to peak around midday. Eating within this timeframe can help keep your blood sugar levels stable and prevent the energy crash that can occur later in the afternoon.
However, if your work or school schedule doesn't allow for a midday break, you may need to adjust your lunchtime accordingly. In this case, aim to eat your meal as close to the middle of your day as possible.
It's also important to listen to your body's hunger cues and eat when you feel hungry. If you're feeling hungry earlier or later than the recommended lunchtime, it's okay to adjust your meal schedule accordingly.
Overall, the best time to eat your afternoon meal (lunch) is during the midday timeframe of 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM, but individual preferences and schedules should also be taken into consideration.
