The old proverb "Eat breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince, and dinner like a Pauper," is an old folk's wisdom vindicated by latest research as the easiest yet powerfully effective way for every man and woman who has ever fought a continous battle with overweight.
Food researchers discovered that by altering your mealtimes you can lose weight without feeling hungry. There are, of course, biological reasons why this easy strategy of meal reversal is so effective. The food that we eat is digested and absorbed at different rates depending on the time of the meal. Food eaten at breakfast and lunch turned into energy. Food eaten at night is more likely to be turned into fat. Why?
First, we need to understand your body's natural rhythms and circadian cycles. Day and night, in summer or winter, the presence of light itself affects individual centres of the brain. During the hours of darkness, an intense cellular "night repair mechanism" comes into dynamic action. This is a magnificent natural self-healing or growing process which can only work at night, especially during sleep. Growth hormones leap into action when the sun goes down. A heavy evening meal eaten late at night means the digestive process interrupts vital growth or self-repair mechanisms.
