I thought 3 meals was normal????? :S




I have 3 meals a day.



Cerial for Brekky... maybe a sandwich or fruit and saladas for lunch... usually pasta, some kind of rice, or sushi rolls for dinner.

I've lost 25 kilos since February, so that may answer your question.

everyone is different. 3 meals may be fine for some, while others prefer 3 meals and 2 snacks, or 6 small meals.

Its all a matter of trial and error.

As long as your total calories add up to the same amount needed for yourself to lose weight then it shouldn't make much difference

For me I have found 2 meals a day ample. I can't eat breakfast so early in the morning.

what i do right now is constantly stuff my face! though i plan to be having three meals and about two snacks in between. i think it's whatever works for you. healthy portions and keeping your energy up have been the most important things for me in the past, after of course the dedication to keep at it which i am still striving to achieve :P

I eat six times a day. It's encouraging to know I can eat again in a few hours. Gives me something to look forward to. I eat an evening snack but it's only paw paw at about 50 calories. So far my eating plan is working for me.
Never too late to start again.
