Eating five times a day can help keep weight down, a new study has suggested, as scientists reject the idea that three daily meals is the key to staying healthy.
Researchers say a daily routine of breakfast, lunch, dinner along with two further snacks a day can help shed pounds.
But breaking the routine can lead to weight gainfor instance, skipping breakfast is associated with putting on weight, according to the study published in the International Journal of Obesity.

thanks for the post.
Eating 5 #3 McD’s combos will help you lose weight? I knew those doctors were wrong.
An adult eating mcd’s hapy meals works. Iknow I did it.
A year ago i started eating a good breakfast. I found I dont piece around as much or eat heavier meals at other times. My weight is down 10 poiunds.
Something that I’ve always known - the more you eat the less you’re gonna weigh!
I think the Hobbits do it right— eat a couple of breakfasts and go on really long walks.
At 6’8”, I am a fairy lean 240lbs. And I eat about 5 times a day. So it works! :-)
You’d be kinda poor if you did that. (Unless you’re Bill Gates, back during his “I eat nothing but McDonald’s” days.)
"..so they tell me"
I eat about 20 snacks a day and lose weight. Most are around 50 calories. None are more than 200. Occasionally I’ll have a regular meal at a restaurant.
All I know is the only way I lose weight is by tracking calories. It doesn’t matter the time of day.
Sometimes skippin breakfast makes me really hungry, and makes me want to eat someting big and unhealthy. However, if I just eat my normal lunch I’m fine after I eat. I will also typically eat lunch earlier.
I’ll also eat a snack before dinner if I am having a late dinner.
I refer you to the McDocumentary “Fathead” which refutes Morgan Spurlock’s “Supersize Me”...it is possible to eat McDonald’s and lose weight.
People (like me) tend to over eat because they are hungry. If you have a decent snack between the standard meals, you tend to not feel as hungry and won’t over eat.
Can we get drunk and smoke leaf every evening too? (Please say yes)
I eat once a day and my weight, which is perfect for my height, has been rock steady for over 30 years. It just proves we are all different, something ObamaCare is sure to overlook. Hmm, has Moochele weighed in on this yet?
If so, count me in!
Worked for me - down 10 pounds in 8 weeks. Of course, the swimming, biking and running probably have something to do with it as well...
Are you Jevon Kearse?
If you’re overweight, eat slowly and give the food time to reach the stomach. You’ll feel full and thus eat less.
Conversely, if you’re underweight, eat quickly so that you get the amount of food you need and quit when your stomach says, “full.”
