Wallace D. Wattles on The Right Time To Eat
What I remember reading in the Science Of Being Well from Wallace D. Wattles that had a profound impact on me, is that there is a difference between hunger and appetite. We eat too much.
That is certainly a fact. Many studies on longevity have shown that calorie restriction helps in maintaining longevity. It makes sense when one thinks that the digestive system burns the most energy in the body.
You would already have experienced this after a large meal. You feel full and bloated, but you also immediately feel like taking a nap. Your digestive system is raising your body temperature and mobilizing all the resources of the body to digest the foods you ingested, and process them to extract what nutrients it can find, and eliminate the rest. It transforms the sugars so they can be transported through the blood system. All this requires an enormous amount of energy, which is then available for the body to then act. Wallace D. Wattles explains that in our sedentary lifestyle, most of that energy is not used and is transformed so that it can be stored as fat.
The whole digestive process is hence very energy demanding and you will feel the need for a nap so that all the energy can be directed toward digestion. It then makes sense that reducing the amount of food you ingest spares your digestive system this hard work, while still producing enough energy to sustain our lifestyles.
Wallace D. Wattles recommends in the Science of Being Well, eating only when you have a earned hunger. He claims that if you have had a sufficient meal the night before, you should not wake up hungry. The Home Study Course reviews how you can apply these health secrets to our modern lifestyle.

If you had a dinner of nutritious foods, mainly greens and raw foods that can be assimilated gently by the body while you sleep, you should not be hungry in the morning. He claims that breakfast is hardly ever necessary and that the body should be able to function satisfactorily until the noon meal. Calorie reduction indeed.
You will state that you suffer from a sugar low come mid morning, due to an empty stomach, and possibly severe headaches as well. However it would be interesting to note that most headaches are likely to be caused by coffee or caffeine addiction, and that once the addiction is overcome, headaches disappear. If the body has been properly fed nutritious foods the night before, then hunger should not be felt until lunchtime.
Of course, there is a difference between hunger and appetite. If you are used to a copious breakfast, made up of sweet cereals or eggs and toast, it is likely that your yearning for breakfast is more an acquired habit and an appetite for the sweet foods you’re used to having at breakfast rather than the result of a earned hunger.
In fact, your body has been healing and replenishing its energy while you sleep, and you should wake energized and vibrant rather than ravenous for sweet foods that stimulate your appetite, but do not come from your hunger.
