    Default The Great Snack Divide: Should You Eat Three Square Meals Day - Or !7 Tiny Ones?

    Scientists are split on how often we should eat. Personally, I always have food in my pockets – fine when it’s rice cakes, less so when it’s cheese

    The jury keeps coming in and then going back out again on the topic of meal frequency. One study will find that, compared with those having three meals, 17-a-day snackers have a better metabolic profile and lower cholesterol. The next will find that spreading your calorie intake over more meals does not aid weight loss. Then someone will break the mould altogether and suggest that the correct number of meals is neither three nor 17, but two – in one study, people with type 2 diabetes who ate only breakfast and lunch, compared with six meals a day, saw their BMI fall further.

    I think that I would agree with Islander on this one. I generally eat two meals each day, brunch and dinner. As I usually dislike social eating altogether, this is a pretty easy plan for me, but occasionally I am invited to lunch out somewhere with friends. This fucks up my eating plan for the next day or so. I just do better with my own relationship with food on my own.
