Here are some quotes from the nutrition lecture slides:
“Diabetic retinopathy within 7 years of diagnosis is in as many as 50% of children with diabetes.”

“Meal timing principle:
Breakfast like a king
Lunch like a queen
Dinner like a pauper”

“Food eaten early in the day is digested and absorbed largely during the most active daytime hours, studies at the University of Chicago have shown. Therefore the body is likely to get the most good from food eaten at breakfast and at noon. In contrast, food eaten at night shortly before going to bed, is digested and absorbed largely during the period when the body needs it least and when the excess is likely to be as fat. Source Abundant Health, 101.”

Dr. Cupp “proposed that weight gain is the result of inappropriate timing of food intake in relation to the evening sleep time.”

He had “595 overweight patients.” He advised them “to stop eating snacks and meals in the evening”, and their “last meal was ideally at noon but no later than 3p.m. They were “advised to not to go to sleep until 8 1/2 hours after their meal”, and they “did not change what they ate.” “All patients who followed instructions lost weight.” “Blood sugar levels of diabetic patients who lost 30lb. or more were normalized.” Source: Proof Positive, 5.

The Creator’s diet:
Genesis 1:29
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

The Creator says there is a time for everything, which includes meals:

Ecclesiastes 3:1
3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

PCRM also talked about meal timing in their recent video at out this health news from the Physicians Committee of Responsible Medicine (PCRM) entitled “Meal Timing to Body Weight”:

“Meal timing aid weight management, according to in the Journal of Nutrition. compared meal timing and frequency to changes in BMI for 50,000 participants as part of the Adventist Health Study 2. Those who ate breakfast as the largest meal of the day, did not snack, and fasted longer overnight had the lowest increase in BMI when compared to those who consumed more than three daily meals with snacking in between.”
