But it is not just, without anything to eat?

“It is good to have a long time not to eat it. It saves more energy. That’s three times a day, it is not a biological but a cultural phenomenon that occurred during the industrial revolution. It is not, of course. Our ancient ancestors were eating, just like the other omnivores, if food was available.”

What’s going to happen, as we often did.

“Our body will not have the time to be between meals to recover. Cells of the body are focused on the growth and multiplication of complex numbers. Every time we eat, there are all sorts of processes that this growth and multiplication of digestion. There’s this waste that continues to accumulate, and, moreover, has an influence on the processes in the body.”
