Most people believe that if they eat less meals per day (1 or 2); they will loose a ton of weight. Yes, if you put less calories into your body then you burn off; you will loose weight. However, many of these same people will gorge themselves in those 1 or 2 meals often times taking in more than 2000 calories per meal (3000 – 4000 calories/day). This practice is not healthy.
Evolution and nature has given our bodies a mechanism for survival. Our bodies have developed a means of storing an energy source (fat) to be used between meals. Like all living mammals, we store fat when times are good; and burn fat when times are hard to find food. This same survival mechanism is what causes us to gain that unwanted weight.
The secret to healthy weight loss is to eat 5-6 small meals a day. Yes, that’s right. If you eat small healthy meals every 2-3 hours throughout the day; you will be pleasantly surprised at the results. Your body will learn to burn off the food you eat (not store it in fat) as well as burn off and use the excess fat that you already have stored in your body.
