Many years ago when I was beginning to treat obesity, I gave advice that sounded reasonable but had not been tested. For example, I told patients to "eat when hungry and stop when full". Seems reasonable, right? but the advice was wrong. Following it, my patients gained weight. And I told patients not to follow the clock; if it’s lunch time and you’re not hungry, don’t eat lunch, I said. I thought that was a good idea, too, but it was a disaster. I should have known better–the idea is un-French. People reading this blog know the lifestyle of French women is ideal. I have given plenty of evidence. In particular, they don’t skip meals.
