If you’re one of the millions of people who have bought into the idea that you have to eat 5-6 small meals per day …
You’ve been LIED to.
That’s right. Though eating small, frequent meals every 2-3 hours certainly does WORK … heck, I used that approach for YEARS, to personally lose 64 pounds in a 7 month period … and with literally HUNDREDS of in-person training clients who collectively lost THOUSANDS of pounds using the small, frequent feeding method … more and more research is showing that it is NOT necessary.
In fact, two recent studies – one in the Brittish Journal of Nutrition, another at the University of Colorado – have specifically shown that increasing meal frequency does NOT promote greater weight loss, and has no significant effect on metabolic rate.

When you get these “rules” in place, then it’s all about finding an approach that works for YOU. The one we’re talking about today “checks all the boxes” … and could be perfect if you like the idea of eating a big dinner every night while getting LEANER at the same time:
