I agree every story is the same when we try to better your food intake but why is it so important is the question.
Our body is made in such a way that it needs energy every 2-3 hrs to get the whole body energy system working. If we don’t provide it happens so that your body (cell) absorbs the meal ( may it be the healthiest) in your body and never let it get used for energy utilization. So what happens to that meal – Well it gets converted into FAT !!. Also, it lowers your METABOLISM.
Now whats metabolism – Its the speed of your body to utilize the calories. Basically, the speed of your car, If you keep your car well it runs better and provides better mileage.
But you don’t jus have to eat on time cause of metabolism and fat. But also for the reason that your stomach generates acid ( hydrochloric acid ) which is also known as the gut acid produced by the parietal cells (also called oxyntic cells) in the gastric glands in the stomach. So when you don’t provide the meals on time this same acid starts acting on the walls of your stomach and that’s how you start that ACIDITY ISSUE.
Also, If we see long gaps make us super hungry and have that craving which ends up in either very sweet ( chocolates, cakes ) or on salty ( fried chips,namkeens).
Having too much of sugar in your body disrupts the balance of glucose-insulin ratio in your body and both get tired of overworking. So either of the ones quits the job or starts cheating on his work. At a very later stage its called insulin resistance or diabetes.
On the other hand, if you’re having extra salt in disrupts the sodium in your body and makes the blood flow faster which makes the blood pressure increase. Making you a hypertensive person.
Starving for longer periods also makes you eat a very heavy dinner which again gives you gas issue.
Let’s start with a good habit today. Try to have a max time gap in between your meal as 2-3 hrs to avoid all of what I mentioned. In the start you will 100% feel that your eating too much but trust me over a period of 2-3 weeks you will feel better. But don’t give up on it CAUSE ITS ABOUT A BETTER YOU.
Remember a FOOD IN TIME SAVES NINE.
