Most of us living the urban lifestyle slip on the meal timings. After some time it becomes a routine. We do all kind of research on Google search looking for tips for a healthy lifestyle. The root cause of all lifestyle related problems is meal timings.
Body is a machine
The most important component of this machine is the digestive system. It processes food and provides nourishment to all organs of the body. A machine has a work cycle and a rest period. Meal timings help ensure sufficient work and rest for your stomach. The biggest burden you can put on this system is a late night snack.
Which meal size is right for you
There is an old saying, breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper. The size of meal decides the workload on your digestive system. After a night of rest the stomach is all ready, up and roaring to process food. Thats why they say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Processing breakfast is easy and it gives you the energy to take on the day. Lunch on the other hand is just energy replenishment. People at a younger age still can digest a heavy dinner. But if you are above 40 you should consider having a meagre meal at night, even better if you can manage to skip it.
Urban lifestyle forces you to have quick bites through the day, oily and greasy and then there is this party at the nightclub where you let loose. This will take a toll on your digestive system.
