    BBC Article on Body Timings

    Anyone find these accurate? Never knew morning is the worst time to exercise! Certainly feeling a biological siesta at the moment...

    Wonder if I can use this to talk the boss into allowing us to have afternoon siestas.

    I find it amusing that our bodies know that we need a drink after seven at night.

    I wonder if having a bigger meal in the afternoon and a small meal like a sandwich in the evening would help weight loss? Basically reverse lunch and dinner.

    Yes, it has long been known that you should "breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dine like a pauper" to maximise the benefit you get from the food

    Interesting - I'm quite the opposite! I skip breakfast because I'm never hungry in the morning, have sandwiches for lunch, and eat a 'proper meal' in the evening.

    I also hadn't realised that not being able to handle alcohol well during the day was actually a thing. Explains so much!

    If general society has anything to say about it, it means yer' a wuss 'o can't 'andle 'er booze.
    The 'drinking culture' annoys me to no end -_-
