I followed the very same dieting pattern, eating just one meal a day, and I felt great.
However, I fell ill with a cold, and, going with the tried and tested way, I decided to feed a cold, so I reverted back to my old eating habits.
I am nearly over the cold now, so will soon be joining you with just one meal a day.
Allow me to give my reasons for doing this.
I watched a BBC documentary, called Eat, Fast and Live Longer, I've been looking for a link, but the Beebs copyright police have been active
It started off by saying that during the great depression, last century, many people were really starving, and there was a horrendous food shortage in
All the experts and scientists predicted a sharp rise in mortality rates, but, to everyones surprise, there was a substantial drop.
People lived longer, by eating less, by a staggering 8 years!
Scientists have now started to look into this data, and have also found that, after a period of no food, your DNA goes into self repair mode.
Our natural eating habits, as hunter gatherers, is to hunt, or gather, then take the food home, and eat at the end of the day. Just one meal a day.
I decided to try it as an experiment, and found it really easy to do.
Many people I spoke to, whilst on my one meal a day, were so "educated" about eating, and eager to put down my diet, that I became amused by the
standard reaction, and it is repeated here, on ATS.
"You might be able to do even better if you were to eat all day long."
"Actually, 6 small meals is better than 3 large ones."
"You would be better of dividing that one good meal into 5 different portion and eating every 3 hours.
Thats best for your body. "
I have heard so many doctor do-gooders lambasting the one meal a day habbit, it makes you wonder why they get so agitated about anothers eating
Self appointed eating experts, flouting "knowledge" that has been drip fed to them, in keeping with someone elses agenda.
Look around, everybody is overweight, we are doing it the wrong way!
