1. A big breakfast
- What to eat: Breakfast should be hearty and greasy (ie: 100g cheese, 70g bread, 20g butter and a hot drink without milk or sugar).
- Why: Every morning the body secretes 3 enzymes: insulin, to receive sugar the organs need to function from the moment we wake; lipases, to metabolise fats used for the production of cell walls; and proteases, to metabolise proteins used to produce cell content.
2. A good lunch
- Why: In the middle of the afternoon, you experience a peak in insulin which aims to use sugar in order to compensate for fatigue linked to organ function.
4. A light dinner
