    Thanks for the lectins piece! Just this week, I read about the danger of lectins for the first time, and my jaw dropped when they listed all the foods we should avoid eating as a result.

    Regarding the Delayed Meal time study (and/or reconsidering skipping breakfast), doesn’t that study just show that irregular intervals can be disruptive? A regular schedule, which may include not eating breakfast would not fall into this category, no?

      Yep, it appears as though consistency is more important than timing. If you look at the body of literature as whole, late eating still appears consistently more unfavorable to circadian rhythms and metabolism. That said, bodies are super resilient and I’m sure you can find a healthy balance in any range.

    On the article about “delayed meals,” Is “later/delayed” judged by some great grand clock? I.e., ideal waking time is generally around 8 am and so generally an “on time” meal would be 8:30 am and later meal would be 1:00 am even if Joe woke up at 5? An 8:30 meal for him would still be “on time”?…… Similarly, for the study on the “later at night meal times” what determines “late at night”? One’s bedtime? The sun, so a more general clock that is a general guideline for everyone?

    Darya I love your “For the Love of Food” pages! They make for a perfect break at work and I always find something interesting. I also think it’s great that you also include your opinion on the articles, reminding us not to get too bogged down in the nitty gritty! Plus, science just seems to be proving and re-proving everything from your book :-)

    I’ve literally felt all of these things intuitively! My clock always feels messed up when I skip breakfast… My back always feels more aligned when I run more often or am in good shape… And also everybody has different body types with different types of foods… This is crazy how I stumbled across this page after I have been intuitively knowing these things that past few days.
