Were humans designed to be "grazing' all day along? Well, I don't think so. In fact it's highly impractical advise that can be given to anyone -- eat every 2 hrs so as to cover the horrible impact of a horrible diet called HIGH CARB LOW FAT. Let's see the monetary damage that it does to a nation:
(1) Each meal would cause 15 min loss of productive time.
(2) Eating every 2 hrs means eat 4 times during the office hours of even a 9 to 5 job (though there's hardly any 9 to 5 job left). Usually it is a 10 hrs job which means every diabetic who wants to live buy this useless advise will have to eat 5 times in 10 hrs.
(3) Presuming a 30 min lunch break (which is the usual break that pvt companies give normally) total time that goes into non productive time = 15X4 - 30 = 30 minutes/manday
Presuming 1 million population of "working" diabetic for computation
Productive man Hours lost = 30X1,000,000 = 5 million man hours per day.
What's the cost of 5 million man hours/day of productive time lost? Do the math yourself.
A similar study was done in the US on how smokers work less due to their smoking habit and hence were paid less. IIRC, 1 fag was considered 7 min loss of productive time in that study. Give or take a few minutes. Multiply the number by 10 and compute the loss to nation -- value of LOSS of PRODUCTIVE TIME in grazing 10 times a day. This is in addition to the medicare costs.
So, it's a NATIONAL LOSSS to tell diabetics to be grazing whole day at regular intervals just because the nonsensical HIGH CARB LOW FAT diet has to be pushed.
I LOVE talking NUMBERS.
I don't like giving emotional speeches by "appealing to the authorities" and producing XEROX copies of broken & miserably FAILED GUIDELINES, as I hate playing politics.
