Nutrition Q & A
Should My Weight-Loss Plan Include Three Meals a Day or Several Small Meals Throughout the Day?
So far, research related to meal frequency has been inconsistent. There's no strong evidence to support any one meal pattern. Until more studies are conducted, individuals should choose a meal pattern that helps prevent feelings of hunger. Waiting too long to eat between meals can lead to overeating at the next meal. A plan that works for you may include three meals a day or several small meals. A registered dietitian can work with you to develop a personalized eating plan. Find a Registered Dietitian »
