THIS IS HOW MANY MEALS THIN PEOPLE EAT
Eating 6 small meals per day may be best for weight loss, according to a study in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Subjects who stuck to that routine had the lowest BMIs on average, likely because eating every 3 to 4 hours keeps blood sugar stable, making people less likely to overeat or eat impulsively.
The study also found that those who ate the bulk of their food during the day and not late at night were more likely to be slim.
4 TIPS FROM 4 NUTRITIONISTS
â€¢ How much you eat matters more than what.
Instead of debating oatmeal or cereal, measure out food to make smaller portions a habit.
â€¢ The most important thing on a package is the ingredient list.
The shorter the list, the less processed the food.
â€¢ Herbs and spices arenâ€™t just for flavor.
Theyâ€™re packed with phytonutrients that can boost metabolism and memory and balance blood sugar.
â€¢ The time to watch intake is when youâ€™re snacking.
We get 25% of calories in between our three big meals.
