Are Small, Frequent Meals Really Better for You?


For years, we’ve been convinced that small, frequent meals are the best approach to eating and weight loss because they keep metabolism burning and appetite under control. However, new research has led some to question this recommendation.

So, I guess the real questions are, does eating 5 to 6 meals a day really increase the body's metabolism?  Does going long periods without eating actually slow the body's metabolism?  Does eating more frequently really help control appetite and reduce cravings?

I decided to compare these health claims to current research to see how they really measure up.
