New York – A new study suggests eating three full meals per day as opposed to several mini meals may have more benefits than previously stated for those seeking to lose weight. As reported by Reuters, researchers found that overweight study participants reported less hunger after eating three meals daily as part of a low calorie, high protein diet in comparison with eating six small meals each day.
Dr. Heather J. Leidy with the University of Missouri in Columbia is quoted as stating of the research findings of she and colleagues from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, “There’s a lot of lay press about eating frequency… these mini-meals everyone is talking about don’t seem to be as beneficial as far as appetite control.”
More information about the study may be available in the journal Obesity.
