    "The epidemic of obesity, including childhood obesity, occurred in the past 40 years with the eating pattern of three meals a
    day plus snacks," Mattson added. "So clearly, that is not necessarily a healthy eating pattern. If people can avoid overeating by
    skipping meals, once they adapt to that, it can only be a good thing."

    Discerning appetite from hunger is a distinction that few consider.

    Discipline is freedom is right on, as is not being a slave to food. Slovenly eating habits and undisciplined eating is what is killing Americans. I was getting my daily espresso yesterday and three dudes in line in front of me were young enough to be my kids. Every single one of them was overweight with that roll-over-the-belt look. And everty single one got a couple of pastries and one of those sticky sweet coffee drinks.

    Other than hormonal issues (which can still be fixed by functional docs), there is no reason to not be fit and strong and relatively lean.

    I don’t necessarily think eating 3 times a day with snacks is the issue when it comes to obesity. I grew up eating that way and at 45 I still have abs for all the women to see at the pool or beach. It’s the quality of what is consumed the quantity of what’s consumed and the lack of physical activity. The younger generation would rather be exercising their thumbs playing video games or surfing the web rather than working their bodies.

    Realized that I do a limited fast almost every working day. Up at 0400, eat at 0600, usually in my vehicle, maybe a protein bar at 0800, then nothing except coffee and water until 1800, and then it's a handful of mixed nuts or some keifer until dinner at 2000 or later.
    This would explain why, if I hold over, I scour the precinct for anything remotely edible when I'm cleaning up the day's wreckage. Cookies, donuts, rodents, insects beware. And cannibalism as a last resort.
    And on days off, I eat "normally," and my body has to adapt to different times, amounts, qualities.
    Light bulb moment.
    Got some reading to do.
    Thanks.

    Most people are lazy and want a quick fix that takes no discipline.
    The medical establishment is quick to provide the illusion of a quick fix for them.
