“Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.” Most people today do the opposite –eat nothing for breakfast, a sketchy lunch, and a large meal at night. Eating a large meal late in the day leads to:

–Sleep disturbances

–Acid reflux

–Reduced glucose tolerance

–Weight gain (nutrients not being used get stored in fat tissue)

Researchers found that women eating lunch after 4:30 PM burned fewer calories than women who at lunch ate 1PM, even though both groups had the same activity levels and ate the same amount of calories. Experts suggest: time your largest meal for your most active time of day.
