The key is to think small and often, as you do not want to overburden the digestive system with too large of a meal that can’t be used for fuel for your body. Equally distributing your food throughout the day will improve nutrient absorption, prevent blood sugar fluctuations and decrease fat-storing hormones and fat-storing enzymes.
Depending on your Caloric needs, you should consume 5-7 meals per day in order to keep your metabolism at a healthy rate. Snacking is not suggested as this is usually done with high sugar foods that spike your insulin levels and make curbing cravings more difficult.
Snacking with “good fats” like a handful of raw almonds and fibrous vegetables may be good for some people. No meals or food should be consumed 2-3 hours before bed.
