It is a common belief that one should eat small quantities of food multiple times during the day for an effective weight loss. According to a recent study, it was concluded that if you eating a low-calorie diet there is no advantage of eating food multiple times during a day when it comes to reducing one’s weight.

1. It is now scientifically proven that having snacks or low-calorie food for as much as six times in a day does not help in “fat burning”. Instead, the recommendation is to reduce the number of calories in your diet by strictly following recommended diet chart for men and adhering to the suggested exercises for men.

2. You should keep your calories in check rather than consciously working on frequent snacking, as it does not matter at all how many times you eat provided you are aware of ‘what are you eating’. In fact, if fasting makes you overeat then you should stick to the standard three times healthy meal in the day to reduce fat from your body.

3. According to dieticians, if you are without food for about 3 hours, your blood sugar starts to fall and once you reach the 5th hour, you tend to ‘pick up’ junkies available within your reach. In fact, after 7-8 hours of sleep, our body is in a need for absolutely healthy breakfast which you should never skip.

4. The more you tend to skip your morning meals, the more are the chances of gaining weight due to the habit of eating unhealthy food, that is devoid of essential nutrients like Vitamins A, B12, D, vital minerals, and proteins. This happens because of food carving that develops over the period, by staying hungry. To avoid this carving for ‘unhealthy food’ it is recommended to eat ‘healthy low-calorie’ food after every 3-4 hours. Do not go through the mini-meals route as it puts you in danger for eating too much of unhealthy food. Instead, eat healthy protein rich and fibrous diet that will keep your weight in control.
