Grazing is better for you than gorging. Chapter seven will discuss the importance of small frequent meals in much more detail. For now, let it suffice to say that the body interprets missed meals as starvation. Let's suppose you eat lunch at 12:00 noon and dinner at 7:00 pm. If you skip breakfast the next day, that's 17 hours without food. This sends an unmistakable signal to your body that you are starving, even if your lunch and dinner are large meals.
Your goal should be to eat approximately every three hours. Establish scheduled meal times and stick to them. Regularity in your eating habits is critical.
By eating smaller portions more frequently, you'll be able to eat more food than you've ever eaten before without being deprived or starving yourself. Most people say they eat more on this program than they've ever eaten yet they get leaner than they've ever been before.
