Giving up lunch or dinner (but also, and above all, breakfast) hurts more than we think. This is confirmed by a study conducted by Rajita Sinha area of Yale University and published on “Journal of Clinical Investigation". According to the research, feed regularly and constantlyand (with the right foods of course) it is essential, because when our body has a low sugar level, the brain begins to crave food, especially in people with very overweight.

If we skip meals, we reduce our glucose supplies and therefore we end up increasingly losing the ability to control cravings, especially towards the fat food and greedy, high-calorie, such as carbohydrates from which most of the sugars are obtained.

In short, eating small quantities of food but eating often must become a real motto if we want a lean body, because the "cevello - as Rajita Sinha herself says - needs its food".

“The results - he explained Kathleen Page, one of the researchers - indicate that the obese may have a limited ability to inhibit the urges to eat, especially when glucose levels drop below normal. The key seems to be eating healthful foods that maintain glucose levels. The brain needs its own food ”.

In short, skipping meals under the illusion of reducing the amount of calories ingested is a big mistake! As soon as our glucose levels drop, we will be severely tempted to overeat. And not with fruit and vegetables, but with the first calorie food we find in the fridge!
