💥💥Debunking the myth: Does eating more frequently really boost your metabolism? Let’s find out.⠀⠀
—-⠀⠀
We won’t make you wait too long…the answer is 🙅🏽‍♀️No!⠀⠀

🤓You may have read online that eating five or six small meals during the day is much better for your metabolism than eating three large meals. However, eating more often throughout the day will not lead to more calories being burned.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
🔎We’ve done a lot of research about this topic, and there were no studies to suggest this. It really doesn’t matter whether you eat 3 or 6 meals a day, what’s truly important is the number of calories you are consuming.⠀⠀
—-⠀⠀
✅The fact is our metabolism increases each time we eat. If we consume, 1,800 calories over 3 large meals throughout the day, the body experiences the same metabolic increase as if we were to consume the same number of calories over 6 small meals. Eating 6 min.-meals per day just ensures that our metabolism increases slightly six times that day, as opposed to increasing substantially three times if we were to eat the larger meals.⠀⠀

In our opinion, one way to eat is not better than the other. It’s all going to depend on what’s best for YOU. 😊⠀⠀
🥗🥗🥗🥗🥗🥗If eating frequently throughout the day keeps you more satisfied and reduces hunger cravings. Then this option is perfect for you and your lifestyle.⠀⠀
🥗🥗🥗 If eating bigger meals is what works for you, then do that!⠀⠀

  1. It may not increase metabolism, but the body can only metabolize a certain amounts of nutrients at a time. For example, protein. Eating more than 30mgs of protein doesn’t benefit your body in any way and those calories are stored as fat. Reference American College of Sports Medicine. Also diabetics should eat smaller frequent meals to avoid rises in blood glucose. I know you were addressing increased metabolism, but this is not a this or that… many factors to take into account

  2. NAILED IT!! I wish people knew the optimal range for proper thyroid function (weight management) is .8-1.5 anything higher/lower will yield less than optimal weight/energy level results

  3. 🧐🧐 Hmmm… interesting. I wonder if if it’s better for the digestive system to eat smaller portions?

  4. I’m definitely having to learn to eat more small meals. As someone recoverkng from eating disorders, I have to learn to trust that I will always have food available and don’t need to binge and then end up starving myself to make up for it, etc
