Myth: You Can Only Eat Three Meals a Day

Some experts advise eating three big meals a day, while others say you should have six small ones when you're trying to lose weight. Keep in mind that when you eat isn't what's important -- you should focus on total calories. (To find out how many calories you should stick to lose weight, check out the American Cancer Society's Calorie Counter). If you're having six small meals per day that keep you full, great. If eating three larger meals works better for you, do that. But if you're eating six large meals per day, then you should probably reevaluate your eating habits.
