Eat Six Meals A Day? Weight Loss Will Happen

Art Fielding

I bet you have heard before that if you eat six meals a day, weight loss will happen. I bet you even believe it. However, have you eaten six meals a day for any length of time? I'm guessing no. It's amazing. I have this conversation with so many people and it is always the same. They know that they should be eating six small meals a day, but they have never actually tried it. I am hoping that once you understand why you should eat six meals a day, you'll give it a try. Below are three benefits of eating six meals a day.

Benefit #1 - No more cravings

If your blood sugar level is low, you will crave diet killing junk food. The body is low on sugar and it sends out an S.O.S. demanding more sugar now. Your brain interprets that and sends out cravings for all of your favorite junk foods that will up your blood sugar. But, if you are eating six pre-planned meals every day, your blood sugar will stay at a much more constant level limiting or eliminating these cravings.

Benefit #2 - More energy

I'm sure that you have heard the term sugar crash, and that is exactly what happens when your blood sugar dips. You end up grouchy and tired. I know many people who have quit diets because of a lack of energy, or because of how it made them feel. Eating six small meals every day keeps your blood sugar at a consistent level, meaning that you won't be grouchy and tired.

Benefit #3 - It speeds up your metabolism

Eating six smaller meals a day will help you to increase your metabolism because your body never goes into starvation mode. When your body enters starvation mode, it starts to store fat just in case you don't eat again for a while. This was great for cavemen who might not eat for a day or two while they are hunting, but it is not so great for us since the next meal is always available. Eating 6 meals a day keeps your body from having to keep extra fat stores. Less fat stored means less fat and more weight loss.
