Call me crazy, but you should be eating more if you want to lose weight. It is true. I'm not saying that if you eat 5 cheeseburgers you will watch the pounds miraculously fall off. Eating more frequently is what I'm really looking for.
Most people skip breakfast and have a normal lunch and a huge dinner. Or, some people just eat once per day. Even 3 meals per day is not enough. I try to have 6-7 meals throughout the day, spacing them out every 2-3 hours. This helps to keep your body busy all day long and helps your metabolism.
It's like your body is the Titanic. The workers below deck in the hull are like your liver and they constantly need coal to keep the engines moving and the ship going. If you don't put enough coal in, you end up having a slow moving ship and it sits idle like your metabolism. Put too much in and it doesn't work properly. If you put in a little at a time every few hours, you're smooth sailing... so to speak.
Here is my breakdown for a normal day. You can adjust times however you'd like, this is just a little template:
8am - Breakfast
10:30am - Snack
1pm - Lunch
3:30pm - Snack
5pm - Dinner
7:30pm - Snack
Try to incorporate healthy snacks. I usually have some kind of protein, a serving of fruit or vegetable, and a carb. So a snack for me would be a Greek yogurt (protein) and maybe a banana (fruit) and/or granola (carb). You can play around with what would work for you.
In conclusion, you may feel like you're eating way too much, but you will actually become accustomed to this and will feel fine!
