Tip of the Day

image for Tip of Day

Concerned about excess weight? Here is a tip: Spread your total calories out so that you eat 5 or 6 small meals or snacks a day instead of just 2 or 3. Doing that is said to keep your metabolic activity raised for more hours each day than it would otherwise be – so you burn more. Be a frequent feeder!
