One of the biggest changes I made on this journey was to eat every 2 to 3 hours. Each time you eat, you stimulate your metabolism for a short period of time. The more often you eat, the more you’ll increase your metabolism. Eating every 2 to 3 hours feeds muscle and starves fat. By eating frequently, you show your body that you aren’t going to starve, that food will always be available. Skipping breakfast, eating only a sandwich for lunch, and pigging out at dinner just frightens your body into storing fat, just in case your next meal never comes.
However, you must eat healthy. Frequent eating does not mean snacking and munching mindlessly on junk food and over processed convenient foods. Make each mini-meal complete with a serving of vegetables and a healthy source of protein like eggs, chicken, or nuts.
