Hello, About 18 months ago I came upon the human / biological concept of 1, 2, or 3 distinct 30-40 minute meals each day, with at least 5 hours between them. Lately. I still occasionally casually reach during the "stomach resting & repair 5 hours" for a blackberry along the path or a stray strawberry on the counter or a sample at a store. Ninety percent of the time I resist and pull back my hand. According to my extensive broad-ranging research, not leaving 5 hours between meals, aka snacking, does a number on nearly all your hormone systems: thyroid, adrenal, insulin, etc. I currently do two meals a day and take any pills/supplements/etc. before/with/after the meal. It evidently takes 1-2 years to get the maximum benefit from the new no-snack regimen. I am counting from July 1, 2017 which I feel is a legitimate, genuine no-snack start point. Already (Aug 17th) my son"s and my blood pressure is slowly drifting down. If any of you want to try this routine, 1) it can't hurt and 2) it might help.
