Protein and fiber slow down stomach emptying to keep you fuller longer, while fat stimulates the release of chemicals in your brain to tell you that you're full. Hunger equals younger! When you create some caloric restriction with optimal nutrition, it improves longevity. The worst time to eat is at night! It’s important to close the kitchen 3 to 4 hours before bed in order to optimize levels of growth hormone.   Episode Play-By-Play [2:09] It’s not only about what you eat, it’s also about when you eat it.
