Eat 5-6 times a day to lose weight

Eat 5-6 times a day to lose weight
Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? But this is totally works. You can lose more weight by breaking down your daily intake of food during 3 big meals into 5-6 smaller portions every day. A good schedule is to eat breakfast, then a mid-morning snack, a small early lunch, a second small lunch a couple of hours later, then a small late-afternoon snack, and finally a light dinner.

Make sure that the snacks you eat are healthy ones. Good examples would include fruits, eggs, nuts, milk, low-fat cheese, yogurt and veggies etc. During your meals, try eating just one smallish portion. If you feel like having a second serving, wait quarter of an hour and then see if you’re still full. It happens that your stomach feels full 10-15 minutes after you have had the food, if you take servings very fast then you do not have time to see if you are full.

Eating smaller, frequent meals means that your metabolism works more often on less food. This trains your metabolic rate to increase and digest food more quickly, ultimately leading to a faster overall metabolism. Faster metabolism leads to faster weight loss, thereby making you slim on eating more.
