Is Eating One Big Meal Better for Weight Loss than Eating Several Small Meals?
Weight loss research shows that people who eat most of their calories in one sitting gain MORE weight than people who eat the same number of calories spread over 6 small meals.
This is because eating helps to increase metabolic rate. Eating calories at regular intervals (e.g every 3 hours) seems to reassure the body that food is plentiful. Result? The body burns calories at a slightly faster rate.
