    My god! Finally, someone made some sense. All this nonsense about eating 6 small meals a day doesn’t work, because those who are fat CANNOT control themselves to eat 6 SMALL meals. Like stealing candy from a baby. We all get hungry however, so learning the art of feeling that hunger appears to be the trick. Worked in the past! Don’t know why I believed in the 6 small meals a day myth. Now I’m built like a truck, and suffering from the consequences of it all.

    I am fascinated with your advice about trying to let yourself get a little hungry. I know of a girl that eats one meal a day at 4:00 p.m.. She says that when she does eat it is still not a large meal. I used this approach in college and I lost a lot of weight. Most people think they need three meals a day, but this is not true. When I went back to three meals a day I gaained weight. You can stick to the one meal a day if you drink a lot of water, and drink a glass of water before your meal time.

    Im glad someone spoke the truth! I was like this when I was a child and would go swimming with my brother. We wouldnt eat all day because we didnt want to get out of the water! As a adult I somehow screwed up this practice of being hungry and not letting it bother me… But now im back on track and using IF better and better each day!

    I’ve been reading about low cal diets and the warrior diet. Does anyone know if it matters if I eat 3 times a day or once if I take in the same amount of calories?

    Rachel don’t eat one big meal, it’s bad for you. Three small meals is the norm. You have to split your calories. Eating too much calories at one meal will stop you from losing weight. Your stomach will struggle to digest one big meal. If you are eating only small amount of calories like 500 a day then one meal would be ok, but it is not a long term prospect. Going 5-6 hours between small meals will surely make you hungry.

    Hello Rusty,

    I have been following your site since a year now. As a former sports player, I’m in sports since I was 11 years old and I’m a committed reader on healthy eating and sports. Nowadays there is university professor (Prof. Canan Karatay) who groundbreaks dieting conceptions in Turkey (refering to many scientific evidences) and she is stickly suggesting very low carb dieting (max 100g/day as Mate suggets for average people), healty faty acids, proteins for good health and lower BMI in the long run. She is also advocating that obesity, Type II diabetes and many other health problems can be prevented by banning-controlling carbs in our diet. In fact, she is a very notorous professor of medecine and she almost underlines same points that you suggest over carbs and lifestyle (fasting, health benefits of hunger, eating less meals and never 5-6 per day etc. )
    I wrote all of the above to tell all that I realy like the way you put things on this website with all scientific references and very pragmatic approach on fitness and dieting according to one’s goals.
    So anyway, I want to thank you for all your efforts to put more scientific knowledge to fitness community through the FBB.
    Have a great day all!!!

    Three years ago, i lost 22 kilos in the space of 6 months. I ate one date (normal, small portion and only 2 meals a day) and fasted the next. I felt wonderful. I started sleeping better and my limbs did not hurt anymore. No more digestion problems. On the days that I ate, I worked out 40 minutes only. So this means, eat one day, normal portions twice a day and then work out for 40 minutes (consistently) and then fast the next day. People kept telling me how unhealthy the whole thing I was doing is. Now, almost half of the people I know, have started doing it and agree with my initial conclusion: it’s wonderful and easy.

    The 6 small meals a day idea does work for weight loss but it takes a HUGE effort doing exercise. I recently started juicing again (vegetable juicing) and i noticed by my 3rd vegetable juice how insanely hungry I was. I juiced tomato, carrot and cucumber and had that every 3 or 4 hours. each juice prolly about 150 calories but totally full of nutrients. and about how kids forget to eat but play all day, that is the easiest way to burn off body fat. eating 6 small meals 3 hours apart would need 15 minutes of cardio in between meals just to start burning off body fat. no matter how intense you work out, your blood glucose needs to burn off 1st before stored body fat gets used. fasting by itself may be ok, but when used with nicotine or caffeine it could cause heart palpitations. or abnormal levels of potassium magnesium (electrolytes ((sodium is one too))) so stick with just water, ice water
