22 N+S We virtually ignore the crucial aspect of meal timing.

QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine): 

“The reverse is also true. Does increasing meal size or frequency contribute to obesity? A recent randomized controlled trial comparing the two demonstrated that only the group with increased eating frequency significantly increased intrahepatic fat. Fatty liver is instrumental in the development of insulin resistance. Increasing the timing of meals has a far more detrimental long-term effect on weight gain. Yet, while we obsess over the question of what to eat, we virtually ignore the crucial aspect of meal timing.” [1]
