WHEN YOU EAT

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR BODY -

Chow­ing down every three to four hours keeps your me­tab­o­lism chug­ging. There may also be an ad­van­tage to front-load­ing kilo­joules: peo­ple who skip break­fast tend to have a surge of the hunger­boost­ing hor­mone ghre­lin in the af­ter­noon, so they munch be­fore bed. This can dis­rupt sleep, which messes with the me­tab­o­lism.
