Where did the idea of three meals a day come from? Ancient Greece and Rome had two, as do most aboriginal groups apparently. The concept of "breakfast" seems to vary by culture, but whether or not the culture at anything in the morning doesn't seem to have had an impact on the total number of meals per day.
he's not wrong
physiologically speaking your body would be healthier if you were constantly nibbling, followed by one or two heartier meals, as opposed to stuffing yourself two or three times a day. similar thing with sleep.
>When I drink wine I still water it down, mostly I add warm water to it because I keep the opened bottle in the fridge. I think I drink it 50/50.
You disgusting parasite
You should be stabbed
In the eyes
I am sorry that you fell for the "wine is a sophisticated drink for sophisticated people that should only be consumed thus and thus" meme.
I imagine there is a special place in hell for people who believe marketing so bad that it defines their culture, and that its crowded as fuck.
>Where did the idea of three meals a day come from?
With the industrial revolution I assume.
Workers had a morning bite before work for energy. A lunch break, and then an evening meal when they got back home.
I too come from a wine country, but I am intelligent enough to realize that wine is a lower drink than even beer, and wine elitists are the most brainwashed cattle on the planet.
I dont like cold wine, and I live alone, so I either have to drink the whole bottle, or throw half of it away. Coming out of the fridge its cold, adding warm water fixes it.
Its something greeks, romans, and every living person have done for the longest time, until some genius decided to market wine as a fancy drink for fancy folks, and the elitism around it began.
People started diluting their wine when it started tasting good, when it stopped being used as a water purifier. What the greeks and the romans drank barely contained 6% alcool when the average nowadays is about 12%.
It's winter so unless you live in the southern hemisphere you should be able to store it in your kitchen at room temperature. Btw I assume you're talking of white wine since red wine is supposed to be drank at room temperature.
As far as I know is that in Ancient Greece they hadn't figured yet a way to control the amount of alcohol in a precise manner. This meant that the wine from back in the day was far stronger than the wine we consume today.
They also had a specific water/wine ratio depending on the activity and people involved.
Drinking wine without adding water was seen as barbaric.
Even properly closed it NOTICEABLY loses taste. Not the made up 0.02% more bitter taste that people will spend thousands of dollars on, actual noticeable difference.
Buy a couple of $4 bottles of wine, open one and have a glass, cork it and on the next day compare the opened bottle and the closed one.
Noticeable drop in quality.
Repeat the same experiment in the fridge. Taste remains the same. Refrigerating open bottled of wine works.
Those are facts, repeatable, observable, science. Try it and come back, threads on /his/ last long enough to allow it.
>Ancient writers prescribed that a mixing ratio of 1:3 (wine to water) was optimal for long conversation, a ratio of 1:2 when fun was to be had, and 1:1 was really only suited for orgiastic revelry, to be indulged in very rarely, if at all.
Here's one scientific fact : diluting your wine with water in order to heat it up is literally disgusting.
Now you we can discuss details, but all your arguments are swept away by the fact that you're a filthy wine duliting pleb.
Guy from Hopkins/NIH talking about fasting and calorie restriction. I think there's something in here about when in the USA breakfast was marketed as the "most important meal of the day."
I know in Japan they wanted to push a new industry so they told people they'd be sick without meat. But then again if you have a waist over 31" your company gets fined because you're fat.
