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

Greetings,

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

Metta,
Retro. :)
“Delighting in existence O monks, are gods and men; they are attached to existence. they revel in existence. When the Dhamma for the cessation of existence is being preached to them, their minds do not leap towards it, do not get pleased with it, do not get settled in it, do not find confidence in it. That is how, monks, some lag behind … (It. p 43)”
