Making changes to your health doesn't have to mean major lifestyle tweaks. Try these simple steps for maximum gains at minimal effort
'Eating irregularly forces your body to be reactive instead of proactive,' says Lucy Jones, dietician for Channel 4's The Food Hospital.
'Because it doesn't know when your next meal is coming, it releases too much insulin to store that meal as soon as possible. Doing this too often can cause weight gain, insulin resistance and even lead to diabetes.
