Five Meals A Day Rant

savynaturalista, naturalista One thing I learn in lab yesterday you cannot eat at all, which should be expected because we are working with chemicals but of course I had to learn the hard way. I hope I have no more blunders for the rest of the school year. I would like to know what you guys think about five meals a day or eating every three hours rule. I know a lot of people think that five meals a day are hard and I am one of those people; I can barely come up with three meals how do you expect me to eat five. The solution would be to split up your three meals in to smaller meals, but then that can get complicated as well. How will I split my sandwich in half, and what about my morning ½ cup of oatmeal how can I split that in half? I know mathematically it sounds possible but I don’t think ¼ cup of oatmeal will keep me full for three hours. I am thinking am about three meals and maybe two snacks and try to stay away from seconds at dinner (again). I think I can do that if I add snack, portion control is much easier for me than it was when I first started. I now have a better understanding of nutrition after the class I took so we will see how it goes…

  1. snacks in between definitely. As long as they are clean snacks. Like veggies, fruits, nuts, etc. Fruits and nuts gotta keep an eye on, but veggies you can have as much as you want. Its really hard for me to keep an “hour” track….but I do snack just to keep the metabolism going. Then when I do have my lunch I am not so hungry.

      • I know! I think it depends on the weight loss you are trying to get. Definitely staying with three servings I think would be the norm. But so many reasons to eat less, eat more, there is no one path. Try each one and see how it works for your body. 😀
