Who the hell has figured out every 3-hours meal? 5-6 meals a day? Come on!
Does the food industry wants us to be (carbs) food addict?
2-3 meals a day is enough (I know it is hard to believe when we snack all day) and I rely here on medical knowledge. It is good for bodybuilders to eat consistently to keep anabolic processes in the muscles active and build huge, enormous muscle mass.
General population should avoid frequent insulin peaks (= each time you put something into your mouth what is not water) which bring them serious health problems in the future, including obesity and diabetes. Who wants it? It’s crazy.
People are not aware of the consequences. Why? Why they are not provided with this basic knowledge? Let’s say at school, instead of some arithmetic classes. It is about the body we live in. Our health, happiness, productivity, even work efficiency depends on this body condition!
This graphics illustrates the issue perfectly:

What a crazy world we live in… but what you can make is getting the knowledge and the awareness that you are responsible for your nutritional choices and you can do something about it! Instead of the food industry make yourself happy 🙂
