The human metabolism is a natural safety barrier against external conditions, which change frequently. Accordingly to the primary instinct, when a human being is surrounded with wealth and tranquillity (i.e. one can afford four or five varied meals a day on regular basis), the organism interprets it as a sign that there is no danger of being undernourished and, consequently, there is no need to accumulate energy for so called ‘hard times‘. The metabolism boosts up and the body mass remains at appropriate and healthy level. Obviously, this rule does apply in case of a diet with permanent calories surplus, which did not occur in times of early humans.
If one does not have enough number of meals a day, eats irregularly and does not provide enough quantity of nutrients, then the information is sent to the organism that the future is uncertain and the time has come to start saving. The metabolism slows down to accumulate some energy for the future. The adipocytes grow bigger. In addition, the circulation of the metabolic water is braked, what not only increases the body mass, but also makes the toxins accumulate inside of the body.
Accordingly, the only one way to lose weight properly is to eat four or five meals a day at regular and steady intervals. Have your breakfast not later than three hours after you get up. It is advised to eat subsequent meals, i.e. brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, every two or three hours and to plan the daily diet so as the last meal is eaten not later than two hours before sleep.
