Do y'all just eat wheneves ?
« on: Sat, 03 November 2018, 21:05:02 »
Should we wait until we're hungry ?

I mean, it seems like there's no way nature could've screwed this up, since it's a pretty important system..

In prehistoric times it was probably eat whenever you could get something nourishing into your mouth, and wake when it was light and sleep when it was dark.

In the modern world, I think that sleeping and eating can and should be habitualized and that loose general schedules work best.
Trump gave some private advice to a friend who had acknowledged some bad behavior toward women. "Real power is fear. It's all about strength. Never show weakness. You've always got to be strong. Don't be bullied. There is no choice.
"You've got to deny, deny, deny, and push back on these women," he said. "If you admit to anything and any culpability, then you're dead. That was a big mistake that you made. You didn't come out guns blazing and just challenge them. You showed weakness. You've got to be strong. You've got to be aggressive. You've got to push back hard. You've got to deny anything that's said about you. Never admit."

Given the choice I'd have six 28 hour days (~20 hours awake, ~8 asleep) per week and three decent sized meals per day, the first not for at least a couple of hours after I woke up.

Constrained by the reality of day and night but without commitments to anyone or anything I usually get up around 9 and eat lunch around 2, dinner around 8 then go to bed around 2.

Now I'm working alternating shifts it's pretty messed up - if I have to be at work at 6AM I'll eat breakfast, sandwiches for lunch at around 12 and dinner around 6 but if I'm not in until 2PM I'll skip breakfast and have 'dinner' at 11 (probably 12-12:30 now I'm driving :() and sandwiches at 6 (maybe 7-8 now?) then if I'm hungry when I get home (probably won't be...) I'd have a snack around 11:30.

Some people like grazing and I'm sure it worked well when we needed to be alert to danger (i.e. didn't want to be too full and get cramp when running away from a lion) but I'd rather keep time 'wasted' on survival to a minimum so trips to the kitchen should be minimised.

I feel like my hunger often shifts by up to 2 hrs.. That seems like quite  a large stretch.. questioning reliability..

Speaking from experience as a person who has struggled with their weight and eating habits their whole life i would say OMAD (one meal a day) is best practice. Nature didnít mess anything up civilization did. The ability to drive to Taco Bell at unholy hours of the night and load up in cheap calories and jobs and hobbies that keep us in our rears for extended periods of time have really messed with us. OMAD simulates that one big hunt, catch, or harvest of the day. Have a one hour a day where you eat till your full and donít eat again until the next day. It is working for me! Let me know what you think.

I don't really like eating when I get up and I'm trying to lose weight so I try only eat twice a day when I can. Being hungry is a bit like craving cigarettes to me you just soldier through it for 30 minutes and then you'll forget for another couple of hours.

Of course I ended up not really eating enough today so now I'm starving at 11.30pm when it's not really convenient to cook anything.

During the periods in my life when I did this, I found that mid-late afternoon was the best time - I was "lean and hungry" during the first half of the day, but I still had plenty of time to work/burn off the calories before I went to sleep.

As far as nature and our prehistoric ancestors - they were probably glad to stuff whatever they could find into their mouths. But living as a group, they probably hunted and gathered all day and brought back the harvest to eat while it was still daylight.

I work three 12 hour shifts consecutively and have the other four days off. I eat almost nothing except for some snacking on my breaks for those three days so during the week I pretty much eat anything I can get my hands on else I end up in an exhaustion coma until I gotta start my "work week" again.  :confused:
