Six Small Meals Still Rule

Eating small frequent meals is associated with better food choices and a lower body weight. A recent study found that those who ate 6 or more times a day consumed an average of 343 calories less than those who ate less than 4 times a day. The more frequent eaters tended to eat more nutritious foods, like vegetables, and had an average body mass index of 27.3. The less frequent eaters consumed more calories in the evening from food and alcohol and had an average body mass index of 29.

It looks like eating six small meals of nutritious foods is still a healthy way to eat.
