#1. What is the ideal gap between two meal
#2. Why is proper and timely eating so much necessary?
“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.”
This is because fueling up the body at the right time of the day provides it with sufficient calories for energy.
How, when and what goes into your body decides the health of your body. Body needs a constant supply of fuel in the form of food and this supply should be adequate and in a proper pattern
#3. Align meal timing with your circadian rhythm
Circadian rhythm regulates an individual's sleep-wake cycle and it is repeated every 24 hours. The circadian clock of every individual differs.
The pattern of sleep and waking hours determine how the internal processes function in a body. Therefore one should make a customized meal timetable as per their circadian cycle.
the gap between breakfast and dinner should be 12 hours. Therefore, even if you are waking up at 6 am in the morning,
make sure the breakfast is taken only after you complete 12 hours of fasting from last night's dinner. The first meal of the day should, of course, be nutrient rich.
Our digestive system takes approximately 4 hours to digest the food that we eat. Ideally, one should have lunch atleast 4 hours after having breakfast.
Likewise, the ideal gap between dinner and lunch should also be 4 hours. However, this should not be stretched as it will impact the breakfast timing for the next day.
