All praises and thanks are to Allah Lord of everything that exists. The most Gracious, the Most Merciful. Master of the Day of Judgment you (alone) we worship, and you (alone) we ask for help. Guide us to the Straight Way the Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger, nor those who went astray. Amen

Islam emphasizes on eating less amount of food than appetite so does the science. Islam asks to eat breakfast lavishly so does the modern science—–Now see what Chinese say about not having breakfast:

1. No Breakfast  

 
People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.
This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain degeneration.

2. Overeating 
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.
3. Smoking                                                             
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption
too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.
5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.
7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

8. Working your brain during illness
working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain.

We should adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good

Eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to “schedule.”                 Because:

Evening at 9 – 11pm: is the time for eliminating unnecessary/ toxic chemicals (detoxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an exhausting state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, will have a negative impact on her health.

Evening at 11pm – 1am: is the detoxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 1 – 3am: detoxification process in the gallbladder, also   ideally done in a deep sleep state.
Early morning 3 – 5am: detoxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the detoxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.
Morning 5 – 7am: detoxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

Morning 7 – 9am: absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should have breakfast at this time.  Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30 am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast should change their habits. However it’s still better to eat breakfast late until 9 – 10am rather than no meal at all.                                                                                                                              Sleeping late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4:00 am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleep and don’t sleep late.

Wish healthy and long life to every one!
