As I thought: you had no evidence that “that system will break down sooner.”
Further you failed to realize that overeating – excess total amount per day – is a totally different matter than eating the correct amount divided into a different amount of meals, and therefore not only does your citation show nothing regarding your claim that the “system will break down sooner” even in the case studied, but that the case studied had no bearing in any case.
You also know nothing of how zoo animals are kept.
I did learn something though: I hadn’t known they had Internet access under bridges. Wi-Fi?

Not unproven “reasoning,” but evidence?
Google Scholar not working for you today?
“The overfeeding-induced changes in autonomic outflow occur with typical symptoms such as adiposity and hyperisulinemia. There might be a causal relationship between autonmic disturbances and the consequences of overfeeding and obesity. Therefore studies were designed to investigate autonomic functioning in experimentally and genetically hyperphagic rats. Special emphasis was given to the processes that are involved in the regulation of peripheral energy substrate horneostasis. The data revealed that overfeeding is accompanied by increased parasympathetic outflow.”
“In models for hyperphagia that display a continuously elevated nutrient intake such as the VMH-lesioned and the overfed rat, this increased sympathetic tone was accompanied by a diminished NE response to exercise. This attenuated outflow of NE was directly related to the size of the fat reserves, indicating that the feedback mechanism from the periphery to the central nervous system is altered in the overfed state.”
Of course, you COULD simply go to the zoo and look at the poor predator animals who’re constantly fed — their glazed eyes and constant sleeping. They’re fed constantly to reduce their natural hunting instincts. (Its a crime to keep predator animals locked up, IMHO.)
Hmmm…perhaps that’s why WE are fed constantly. Fat and jolly people are easier to rule than lean hungry predators. That’s food for thought!
Yeah, I kind of thought that the study listed would be beyond you, that constant feeding fucks up the sympathetic/parasympathetic loop. Ah well, go ahead and keep chugging down the non-stop food. You sure know that humans were meant to eat all day long! LOL! Happy grazing!!
