So maybe that's why monks eat so little?

Additional research suggests that increasing time intervals between meals might be a better choice than chronic calorie restriction


The Buddha was so smart.

Greetings,

Upholding the precept of not eating after noon when in a mindful/meditative situation does seem perfectly normal and natural.

Metta,
Retro. :)
"When we transcend one level of truth, the new level becomes what is true for us. The previous one is now false. What one experiences may not be what is experienced by the world in general, but that may well be truer. (Ven. Nanananda)

“I hope, Anuruddha, that you are all living in concord, with mutual appreciation, without disputing, blending like milk and water, viewing each other with kindly eyes.” (MN 31)

Never again...
