So apparently you should eat your meals 4.5 hours after the previous one. That means breakfast is at 8am, lunch is 11:30 and dinner is at 3:00?

That's probably the dumbest thing about the article. Eat when you are hungry. Having snacks throughout the day is just as good and better in some circumstances than having three meals a day.

This is true. Whenever I get to my favorite spot to exercise, there's never anyone around because I can count on people's laziness.

Doesn't work so well in the wintertime. "Yay alone! *freezes*"

FTFY


Best time of day to work out: Morning! One study found that subjects who were put on a high-fat diet and worked out before breakfast gained no weight after six weeks, while those who worked out after breakfast gained three pounds. When you exercise in the morning, you kick-start your metabolism and burn more calories throughout the day.

Hasn't it been known since pretty much forever that you put on more weight if you exercise shortly after eating?

The answer to all those is "whenever I damn well feel like it".

I had to pick up an engraved locket from the mall on Christmas Eve so I went at 8AM when the place first opened. Practically had the whole mall to myself, it was rather pleasant. When I was on the overnight shift I often went grocery shopping at 3 or 4AM. It would just be me and the stocking crew.. also pleasant. The bars let out at 2AM, so leaving around that time would get me harassed by the police.

Early to rise and early to bed makes a man healthy but socially dead.

I had been exercising very late at night, shortly before bed. I have changed my routine, and I now exercise immediately upon arriving home from work. I have observed an improvement in my rate of weight loss.

/About to go cycling.
//Just woke up.

FTFA since you'll be getting up, weighing, yourself, and hopefully exercising.

Ms Dale needs an editor.

Well isn't that nice? All I have to say to all that is fark you to this article. I am a morning person due to my job (I have to get up at 4:30 or 5) but I still don't really like mornings that much.

I don't care if its the "best time", getting up early is a chore and the only thing I want in the morning is a relaxing dump and a relaxing breakfast while I watch cartoons. Maybe at 10 I will contemplate leaving the house.

My inner child is very outer on my days off.

My dear old mother asked one of her doctors if he had ever heard of Dr. Oz.

"I wish I never had," was his response.

fark you, morning people. Different people have different circadian rhythms. My body clock is permanently stuck to one about 14 or 15 hours west of where I currently live. I once visited that timezone, and it was like the farking garden of Eden. I didn't need any sort of alarm clocks, I always fell asleep at a normal time and woke up perfectly refreshed.

Here's what I don't get, waking up to breakfast was reserved for the masters who could sleep until the sun was well up.

The vast majority of human history has been "wake up, work until a while, lunch".

The regularity and abundance of calories are not part of our ancestry.

WRONG!

The best time to shop is 1:30 PM.

By that time, all the soccer moms have left the store to pick up their sprog at school. For some reason, these snowflakes are completely unable to walk home, bike home, or even ride the bus. They must be picked up by mom. Which means that neither are present in the store to obstruct me or bother me in any way at 1:30 PM. If you go earlier then there are sill some moms roaming about and later means that they AND their snowflakes will be causing pandemonium in the store. So, at the designated time each Monday, I trek to the store to procure a weeks worth of groceries. Average time to go in, hit ALL the aisles, AND check out is 30 min.

/i've also eaten lunch by then so I'm not shopping while hungry either
//of course this doesn't work when Monday is a day off from school
///in that case i just go on Tuesday

First off, Dr oz is a farking charlatan. But, all of the things mentioned in the article have nothing to do with an actual time of day, it's all related to when you wake up. ( i realize they give times in the article, but that's because they're farking charlatans)

Breakfast for me is about 0230, lunch is about 0700 and dinner about 1200. Bedtime is 1800.

Grocery shopping is usually on weekends about 0400. I like to sleep in on the weekends.

I don't eat breakfast , or lunch - I pack about 5000 calories in 2 hours before bed and im in the best shape of my life .
However i burn all those calories at work so what ever - good luck with your 1 size fits all diet study

15 hours west would probably be better stated as 9 hours east

Best time of the day to go grocery shopping: If you're hungry while food shopping, you'll be more likely to buy unhealthy sugary or fattening treats.

I've always heard this but I wonder if anyone has ever actually done a study on it? For me at least, the exact opposite is true. When I'm hungry I want something substantial to fill me up, not junk food. Once I've eaten or if I'm just bored is when I want to pick on junk or eat something sweet.

I find it better to go grocery shopping when I'm hungry, otherwise nothing sounds good and I end up not buying much of anything, then I'm running to the drive thru two days later because there's nothing in the house to eat.
