Should you eat more or less?
Posted on:May 7, 2016

It probably sounds crazy to you but in order to weigh less, you need to eat more often. But skipping a meal creates a biological billboard that says, “We’re starving here!” Your body responds by slowing your metabolism—its calorie-burning furnace—in order to hold on to its existing energy stores. If the food shortage continues, you’ll begin burning muscle tissue, which will lower your metabolic rate further and that is not what you are trying to do.  So Eat Up but, Eat Right!
