Eating brings our bodies into rhythm and defines our achievement potential.
“The brain thinks as the stomach digests,” according to Arthur Schopenhauer.
How often the eating rhythm synchronizes our bodies is being researched by modern chronobiology.
Michael Hottiger, molecular biologist at the University of Zurich, stated in the January 2012 issue of “Bild der Wissenschaft”, “A meal at the wrong time can displace the internal clock considerably.”
He added, “A person who eats high-energy foods in the mornings and at lunchtime, then eats a little bit less in the evenings, and nothing at all in the late evening or at night, has optimally aligned his mealtimes with the [body’s natural eating] rhythm.”
Eating behavior is so important. Together with sufficient exercise and sleeping well, keeping a healthy eating rhythm defines our well-being.
