8. Eat small, frequent meals.
The number of meals people eat per day (including snacks) is inversely associated with their body weight. Furthermore, people who eat breakfast are leaner and healthier. The fact is that eating frequently will raise your metabolic rate—your total calorie burn—hence it is an ideal strategy for helping you achieve your goals. At Nutrition Together we recommend the latest science-backed healthy eating guidelines; these include starting your day with a healthy breakfast followed by four or five additional meals.
