Hey guys; I've always heard things similar to that instead of eating three meals a day, you should spread the same amount of food over say five meals a day. Eat smaller portions, but more often. I don't understand why (if) this works. If you keep eating small amounts all day long, you will keep your body producing insulin to lower your blood sugar levels. If you keep producing insulin, you stimulate the anabolic parts of metabolism (such as increased glycogen synthesis, increased protein synthesis, increased glycolysis, increased protein synthesis, and increased fatty acid synthesis.) So bascially, if you eat all those portions all day, your body will constantly be building up its stores. How can that help you lose weight? Thank you!
