    [–] ELI5: The difference between a 500 calorie breakfast and a 500 calorie lunch vs. no breakfast and a 1000 calorie lunch 4noop -1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    Technically, there should not be a significant difference. The only thing that matters is to maintain a daily caloric deficit if your primary focus is to lose fat. Another thing that matters is the kind of food that you eat. Calories from nutrient rich foods versus nutritionally poor foods have different effects on the body. Time restricted eating is basically a form of intermittent fasting which has gained popularity lately. University of Alabama at Birmingham conducted a study on the subject.

    For the first time in humans, it has been reported that eating early in the day lessens daily swings in hunger and changes the 24-hour pattern of fat oxidation and energy metabolism, which may aid in weight loss

    [–] ELI5: why when you have a cold, if you walk around or eat food your nose clears up, but as soon as you sit back down again it blocks back up? 4noop 3 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    A blocked nose is our mucous membranes becoming swollen when you a cold or the flu. The swelling intensity and the amount of mucous secretion (which clogs the nose) keep on changing that's why the nose clears up and sometimes blocks back up. If you take a hot shower or inhale steam or use a warm compress you can see it clears up the nose. Our posture plays a big role in mucus secretion and also when you chew it changes.

    [–] ELI5: Why does really fast flashing lights make you see slow motion 4noop 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    When you're flashing lights fast, our biological mechanism of the retina keeps the sense of light than that of the dark and fills the gap. This is called the 'after image'. Because of this phenomenon the motion feels like slower than it actually is.

    [–] ELI5: Why can we easily walk for hours on end, but struggle when running just for a few minutes? 4noop 3 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    Running is a high intensity activity compared to a normal paced walk and it increases the body’s need for oxygen during the effort thus creates an oxygen shortage. This is called excess post exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC, informally called afterburn) which is a measurably increased rate of oxygen intake during a strenuous activity.
