"Hunger is every 12 to 24 hours."

If you eat every three hours, you are addicted to food – Tim Noakes: "“Humans used to eat once a day in the 1500s, then the British came along and made us eat everything three times a day. “

The biology of the human body is that you’re designed to eat one and a half meals a day. You can only do it if you’re not addicted to the foods [you are eating].”  He said the test for food addiction is simple. “Tomorrow morning, have your cornflakes. You will see that you will have to eat at 11:00. Write it down – you will be hungry at 13:00 and at 15:00. 

“The next day, eat bacon and sausage until you can’t eat anymore. Then you will notice at 11:00 you’re not hungry. At 17:00 you will start feeling a little hunger. That will show you that fat and protein inhibit your hunger. They satiate you whereas carbohydrates drive hunger.” 

He advised parents to feed their children at home by cooking for them. “Don’t get them to eat at school. You want them to eat a big breakfast and come home at 15:00 where you give them more of your food. “If you give them carbohydrates for breakfast, like cornflakes, at 11:00 they will have their Coca Cola or something which is highly unhealthy, and they will eat again. They will eat all the foods they don’t need because that’s what the tuckshop provides."
