Gosh! Is it lunch time already?

Yes. I'm sorry, but I'd not like to have lunch. I usually have brunch and supper. I try to have two meals a day. How many times a day do you have meals? Of course, I know there are a lot of poor people who manage to have a meal a day in the world, but I think most people have three meals a day and they eat nutritious food at each meal. However, such happy lifestyle sometimes seems to cause serious diseases such as diabetes. Please ask you again, how many times a day do you have meals?

1. in the expression 'such a/an' followed by a noun, articles are needed
2. it is more natural to say 'May I ask you again'. [please ask you again] sounds odd
I usually have 3 or 4 meals a day. How does eating so much cause diabetes? It's nice that you only have 2 meals per day.

I'm not quite sure, but a lack of effective insulin seems to play a key role in the development of diabetes. In traditional tribal society, people couldn't have meals regularly, so they ate food as much as they could when they got it and extra glucose was stored as fats in their bodies. When they were near starvation, their energy was created by insulin which assists in breaking down fats for energy. We animals have been developing our abilities that make it possible for us to survive even without having food regularly. Are you with me so far?

1. add 'a' to mention this society for the first time
Yes, I'm following. I didn't know any of that. Could you please continue? I would also like to get some advice from you regarding my diet...

Great. Most modern people have three meals a day, and insulin is secreted in each meal. However, too much insulin impairs the function of it. That could cause diabetes. I'm sorry for not explaining well enough. By the way, to tell you the truth, it's been only two weeks since I started changing my eating habit. Honestly, I'm concerned about how long I can keep it.
