Tip of the Day

Tip of Day

Eat more often to lose weight! Eating five or six small meals a day is healthier and more conducive to losing weight than three large meals. If you are trying to lose weight, take the amount of food you would normally eat at three meals and divide it in half and portion it out in five small meals throughout the day. Smaller portions eaten throughout the day not only prevent binge eating, it also speeds up your metabolism and helps you burn calories more efficiently over a longer period of time.
