Eat More Frequently

Eating three square meals a day is a perfectly healthy way to live life. But in truth, resisting snacks in between is sometimes rather hard. Eating more meals sounds like a bad way to shape your eating habits, but doing so with smaller portions is a key way to keep you full and fit. This has been a topic of debate among nutritionists for decades, and while there is no hard and fast evidence that you can change your own metabolic rate, research indicates a correlation between frequent meals — including snacks — and low obesity risk. Eating at regular intervals may help stabilize blood sugar and energy levels, too. The key is to stretch out your recommended daily caloric intake across those six smaller meals and not just snack in between three fully portioned meals. Eating a full breakfast and dinner with sprinklings of snacks throughout the day is just one of the ways you can incorporate this eating style into your daily life.
