And today’s question is about eating for weight loss…
It’s no secret that what you eat has a HUGE impact on your weight.SPECIAL: This Scientific Trick Can Reduce Your Belly Fat By 8.5% in Just 12 Weeks…
If you eat healthy-sized portions of good-for-you foods like fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains… you’re more likely to reach and maintain a healthy weight.
On the other hand, if you eat too many ultra-processed foods… or foods with lots of sugar or unhealthy fats… you’ll probably gain some extra pounds.
And like I said, that’s no secret! That’s why diets are so popular—changing what you eat can really affect your weight… as well as your overall health.
However, did you know that WHEN you eat can also affect your weight?
And I’m not only talking about eating on a specific schedule, like intermittent fasting.
I’m talking about how often you should eat. It’s been a pretty big subject of debate in the weight loss and health communities for some time now…
Should you eat three big meals a day… which seems to be the “traditional” meal schedule most people grew up with…
(In fact, you might have even gotten in trouble occasionally for eating in between your three regular meals—I know I did!)
Or should you eat four to six smaller meals?

That’s because of how your eating schedule can affect your metabolism.

Today’s question is another great one. The question is:
Is it better to eat three big meals a day or four to six small meals?

Another Easy, Research-Proven Way To Boost Your Metabolism & Lose More Weight
Here’s another “pro tip” to burn more calories throughout the day:
Studies have shown that a 15-20% increase in the amount of protein you eat can burn up to 441 more calories per day!
Of course, that doesn’t mean fast food burgers or milkshakes (oh well!).
Though you can eat more things like rich cheeses, delicious nuts, lean meats, and beans.
So especially in these trying times… when you can’t get out and work out so easily…
And in fact… there are two other simple tips you can do to lose more weight faster… and they work especially well when you can’t make it out to the gym.
Combine all 3 of these… and your metabolism will be so charged up that you’ll actually burn fat right off as you’re sleeping… or sitting on the couch watching Netflix. (And we will ALL be doing that during this quarantine…)
