Welcome back to Light Body Radio! This week’s episode is for all you out there who still think eating every 2-3 hours is doing your metabolism some fantastic favor. It’s not! Eating 6 meals a day is actually doing more harm than good. The intention of this EPISODE is to take a good, hard look at the topic of meal frequency, and figure out how many meals you should actually be eating each day. There are NO STUDIES supporting the recommended “eat every 2-3 hours” dogma. None. Zero. Zilch. Matter of fact, I found the opposite to be true. Study after study showed a health benefit to eating less frequently…lower overall blood sugar, a faster metabolic rate, and even increased protein synthesis! (that’s building muscle) So, join me today in this dive into the myths we’ve been told about meal frequency and much more about hunger regulation.
