"When we looked at the eating habits of the most healthy societies around the world, most of them don't eat constantly from morning to night," said Valter Longo, Ph.d., Professor of biological sciences at the University of Southern California.
"The human body is not designed to eat throughout the day," says Mark Mattson, Ph.d., head of the laboratory of Neuroscience at the National Institute of Aging, us. "But the fact is, people are accustomed to chew all day for no sleep. This is perhaps the cause of so many people be overweight. "
Simply put, three meals a day plus snacks in between turned out to be not the best way to eat. So how should we organize our schedule?
There are set ways of eating that is easy to keep the weight while keeping health by reducing the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and more.
Even if you count and limit the calories you eat in a day, but snacking between meals can make your blood sugar levels to rise. This ultimately could increase the risk of obesity and metabolic diseases such as diabetes.
Eat three times a day
"When we eat continuously, then the body will get the message that he must always be on high metabolism condition, and this makes the body tends to store excess fat," says Longo.
In addition, the Fed also interfere with ongoing process of regeneration of the cells, which can actually protect us from diseases like cancer.
Then her advice: If we weren't overweight, then eat three times a day within 12 hours, no more. But if we're overweight, he suggested to eat twice a day plus a snack, which can be eaten as breakfast, lunch or dinner.
A snack that we recommend no more than 100 calories, and better if healthiest food such as salad vegetables, or fruits.
In a study by the University of Pennsylvania, a group of people were asked to eat three times between the hours of 8 am to 7 pm for 8 weeks. The other group ate starting noon until 11 pm. Both groups were then swapped positions after 8 weeks.
Packed between the hours of 8 am until 7 pm
As a result, the group that ate more morning suffered weight loss and experiencing an improvement in blood sugar levels, cholesterol and trigliserid. But the opposite happens on the second group.
"The most important of these findings, that eating too lunch until nearing bed time will affect the metabolism of the body and how to process the food that comes in," said Namni Goel, Ph.d., a researcher from Perelman Penn's School of Medicine. Previous research also relate the "delay time" this with the risk of obesity.
Why schedule a retreat could be the problem? This has to do with the rhythms of the body produces the hormone, said Goel. Simply put, our body does not metabolize food as good as when we eat more in the morning.
