I have a (probably very simple) question about the diet that Cecil outlines in this article. He says that more calories are burned in the morning that that the big meal of the day should be taken midday (11:00 am). Does this change if you don’t regularly wake up before say 9:30?
What I am asking is, if I am up till 2 or 3 am and sleep till 9 or 10 am should I be adjusting these times, or does the actual time of day have something to do with things?
It would make sense to me that the time shifts to what your normal sleep patterns fall into (and I do have good reasons why I go to sleep so late, its not just because I party till the wee hours, usually ), but then it would also make sense to me that just eating one meal a day would cause massive weight loss, and we all know that the opposite is true. I no longer trust my common sense when it comes to matters like this.
So, do I need to drag my but out of bed at 7am if I really want to lose the lbs, or is 6 hours sleep followed by some good exercise and a light breakfast the only key element?
