In this video Dr Gillaspy, on her YouTube channel, explains the difference between having 2 or 3 meals a day plus why 2 meals may be the better option. Please watch the video for more details.
She says in the video: Reducing your food intake to two meals a day is an effective strategy for weight loss. We have been so ingrained in the three meal a day culture that it seems unhealthy to veer from that path. However, eating frequently does not necessarily boost your metabolism and may even contribute to weight gain when unhealthy food choices are made.
Eating two meals a day and making whole food choices can put you on a path to health by stabilizing your blood sugar levels and reducing cravings. The key to making two meals work is to choose foods that stabilize your blood sugar and to eat enough. Eating a balanced meal of protein and healthy fat in the morning can help reduce cravings for the rest of the day. Additionally, it is important to eat enough during your two meals to ensure you are getting the necessary nutrients. Eating two meals a day can help you reach your weight loss goals, while also improving your overall health.
