Hooray, all my questions answered, in a sciency way! (Always nice for us biochem types). Anyway, for this kickass article, he actually went and read the studies, and explains how they, and their spin, have formed our ideas of how frequently dieters should eat. It makes sense to me, and my experiences with strange eating, and my quest to eat like somebody without food/weight issues. Anyway, read the article if you’re interested, I’ll just suffice it to say that I’m no longer going to feel bad if I eat a huge meal, and don’t bother eating again for 8-10 hours. Not that I’m ever going to be one of those people who eats two meals daily at 1 pm and 8 pm, but occasionally it’s easier to eat it first than pack it for later.
And thanks to Attrice, at http://attrice.wordpress.com/ for turning me on to this site.
