The Importance of Eating Small Meals for Weight Loss

The importance of eating small meals for weight loss is still a subject that isn’t well understood by the majority of people. Dieters have, for a long time, come up with different ways of using diets in a way that can help reduce weight loss. The frequency of eating, the type of food to be eaten, and the amounts of food to be taken in at a particular time, if all well-balanced can complete a successful weight loss program. Your food intake needs depend on your age, sex and the physical activity levels. Apart from aiding weight loss, eating small meals has been shown to control blood sugar levels as well as ensuring proper nutrition.

How Eating Small Meals Helps Weight Loss:

1. Eat At Frequent Intervals

The rate at which your body burns calories depends on your body’s metabolism and this is the reason why metabolism is important in weight loss. A higher metabolic rate means more calories are burnt, hence a lesser weight. You could be thinking that the easiest way to weight loss is simply by skipping meals. Simple, isn’t it? Unfortunately, your body’s metabolism slows down when you skip meals. What happens is that, the body interprets this as starvation and an irregular food supply and slows down metabolism rates in order to conserve energy. This is a perfect reaction, but given that, the starvation is not really the case, by the time you take the next meal, the other calories still exist. This simply translates to weight gain given that you will tend to take large chunks of food to satisfy your hunger.

You are probably thinking that eating more than three meals a day is not a healthy option. It is obvious that the more you eat, the more you increase your calorie intake. This is actually true if you take large meals at a time, but not when you take small healthy meals. Small meals taken to frequently ensure that you do not go hungry as well as prevent you from overeating. It is recommended to take five to six small meals in a day and not to exceed four hours without taking something.

2. Increased Energy

Your body’s energy is obtained from consuming food. Getting continuous energy requires a frequent eating of small meals. A regular and frequent pattern of small food intake regulates the levels of insulin. Insulin hormone helps in increasing the levels of metabolism, which makes the body active as well.

3. In Nutritional Health

Small meals that are taken at frequent intervals are good because people tend not to repeat the same kind of meal. The variety will ensure that you obtain the necessary nutrients for a good body functioning. Some categories of food tend to have more calories than other categories and when taken in large chunks as in the case of taking two or three meals a day, they result in extra calories that would have otherwise not been there. When you take small meals, the probability is that you will take more vitamins and minerals that do not contribute to weight gain.

The importance of eating small meals in weight loss is well rounded and is the perfect weight loss and dietary solution that you have been looking for for a long time.

  • Cheryl Rahkonen

    I think this is my problem. I am terrible about skipping meals because I don’t feel hungry and I usually eat only when I am hungry. But then there wil be those days that I can eat myself out of house and home. I need to lose 100+ pounds but I am really struggling.

  • Esperanza Garcia Gailliard-Élz

    Meal skipping is a pattern in my house. My husband only eats once per day and my sister eats only snacks. This causes a disruption in how much I cook daily for everyone.
