humans like food??  IMPOSSIBLE

It's not the junk food maker's fault the fatties won't quit eating.

The evening? Also know as dinnertime?
 
2013-05-12 04:42:51 PM
fark you subby, i'm not eating crickets

I don't understand the headline.  What exactly are junk food makers supposed to do with this information?
 
2013-05-12 04:48:02 PM
That reminds me of the time I replaced my roommates melatonin with ephedrine pills.  That poor psychotic bastard.

If I'm not mistaken, junk food is available at all times during the day. What does evening have to do with it?
 
2013-05-12 05:08:44 PM
Go ahead and eat sweet, starchy, and salty foods at night.  Just eat smaller portions and when possible cook 'em yourself.

BigLuca: fark you subby, i'm not eating crickets


What about Super Crunch FlavrBlasted™ Honey Butter BBQ Ranch Crickets?
 
2013-05-12 05:17:56 PM
Yeah, subby; is your implication that they should send out the Frito Bandito to make sure everyone locks up their chips after 6pm?

Eating a lot of carbs can give you acid reflux, which doesn't exactly lead to a good night's sleep.

I'm not sure, but apparently it involves crickets.
 
2013-05-12 05:45:57 PM
Do the crickets come in Chipotle flavor?

I'm still trying to parse this headline. Is subby accusing the junk food makers of altering human biochemistry to sell more product?

Prilosec kills that

This is not news. I've know about trying not to eat too late for some time.

  I don't care about the rhythm; those crazy, noisy, ugly 17-year bugs are so revolting I can't eat anything.

I know you are joking, but this is basically what sugar/fructose does.

Hah.  When I read the headline for the first time I was thinking the very same thing.

Yup, and it makes sense if you think of fructose as a signal to the body saying, "It's summer and food is easy to come by, so you should put on a little padding for winter."

"Indeed, eating a lot in the evening can be counterproductive since the human body handles nutrients differently depending on the time of day. "


Well, so much for that "Vegan before Six" diet.

I know what it does. I'm just wondering why subby feels this merits any sort of response by "Big Junk Food". They make a product; they don't force you to stuff bags of it down your gullet 1/2 an hour before going to bed.

They don't have to force junkies to get their fix either.

And like  dope, the first hit is often on the house.

What, did the obvious tag collapse with tachycardia this morning? Choke on a Cheeto?

Meal timing has almost no demonstrable correlation to overall weight gain.  Your body is plenty happy to adjust to eating one massive meal right before bed, or 25 even spaced meals, with roughly the same content.  Some people have trouble sleeping with a very full stomach, especially if they don't like to sleep on their back.  Food takes from 6 to 36 hours to fully digest, the variance has way more to do with what you do the rest of your day, and what's in the food you eat.    Get enough protein, drink way more water than you think you should, and exercise enough to keep your sodium in check.

My wife's body however, more accurately her nose, might object to me doing this though.

How flatulent you entirely depends on your ability to correctly assess how much protein and fiber you need, of course.  Eat too much is eating too much, no matter how rapidly it's done, and you can't fool bacteria.

Actually, a lot of them engineer (yes, engineer- as in "chemical engineer") their food to do precisely that. It's chemically formulated to keep you hungry, or at least not quite satiated, even while you're smacking down shiatloads of calories. There are a lot of people who get paid a lot of money to design snack foods that make you want to eat more.

Enjoy your doritos and mountain dew, but they will never, ever, satisfy you.
