We are constantly hearing from experts and doctors do not skip meals if you want to lose weight. I disagree. The experts want you to eat five or six times small meals a day for weight loss. The concept is that by eating five or six small meals a day it will keep you from being hungry and will keep your metabolism high.
What the experts do not tell you is that it is in our DNA as humans to be able to skip meals and be fine. As a matter of fact the only real way to prolong life is through calorie restriction. The experts and big companies want you to eat five or six small meals a day and now they sell these small proportion meals to you to make you feel like you are doing something good for yourself.
Did you ever notice most of these small meals are almost always pasta type meals? They charge you a lot of money for something you could make for a few cents.
Have you ever noticed the people that eat these small meals of pasta really do not ever seem to lose much weight, and why do they not lose weight? It's because these pasta meals do not promote weight loss, they raise the blood sugar and produces insulin and stores body fat.
Look at the way they fatten hogs and cows, they feed them grains. Animals that are fed a natural grazing diet do not get as big and they do not produce enough bulk or milk fast enough so they feed them an unnatural diet so they get fat faster, and that's the way most people in this country eat. If most people were to eat more natural foods they would eat less calories and be full longer and be feeding the body nutrition that it needs.
Fast food is high in calories and fat but eating two cheese burgers at one sitting is no sweat for almost any kid and you probably will eat over 1,000 calories in one sitting, but if you boiled some chicken and put it over some spinach with a Little dressing you have a healthy lunch or dinner and saved yourself probably 600 calories.
And that would equal at least one pound lost every week! If you can not skip a meal do your best to eat one meal that is nutritious during the day and build on that.
