How Many Meals a Day Should I Eat to Lose Weight?

many meals to lose weight

It doesn't matter how many meals a day you eat as long as you eat the right amount of calories to lose weight but You should strongly consider eating 4-to-6 meals a day if…

Eating 4-to-6 smaller meals a day may not be realistic for you if…

There's no perfect number of meals you need to eat daily to lose weight

3 Studies Back This Up

  1. In this Australian study 179 obese men & women ate the same amount of calories everyday but some of them ate 3 times a day while others ate more than 3 times a day and There was no difference in the amount of weight lost between those that ate only 3 times a day and those that ate more than 3 times a day.
  2. There seems to be little benefit to changing how often or how regularly you eat if you're trying to lose weight, We found it's not when you eat that matters, but what and how much you eat. Michelle Palmer, a dietician at the University of Newcastle
  3. In another study they tested the difference between metabolic rates in people having 1 or 5 meals per day (who all ate the same amount of calories) and found no differences.
  4. This meal frequency study proves it doesn't matter how many meals you eat a day if you eat the right number of calories to lose weight.

Hey Brian,

Your Awesome! I find that I have two problems. Please help!!

1) I work hard exercising eat right & still get no results. why? Example: do I need to wait a two weeks to see the results from two weeks ago?

2) I have been doing the ski step 10 min - too easy so now I just do jumping jacks 10 min but it too easy now. I push myself but Im not sweating as much... What am I doing wrong?

Thanks In Advance!

Hi Adrian,
I have hypothyroidism and bipolar which both hinder my weight loss efforts. I have a three year old and have managed to lose most of the baby weight, but I am still struggling with that extra 10 lbs. I am almost 5'5", weigh 131lbs, and exercise about 1x per week, but still yo-yo between 125-130. My worst enemy its binge eating at night...
Is there any hypothyroid-friendly meal our exercise plan you can suggest for me?
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
