Have you ever heard a family member or friend talk about starting a new diet and eating only “healthy” food such as salads, fruits, and, non-fat yogurt only to find a short while later they are unable to keep on the diet plan because they feel as if they are starving? Perhaps you have experienced this yourself?

It’s generally considered common knowledge that we must cut calories in order to lose weight. It’s also common knowledge that salads, fruits, and non-fat yogurts have less calories than pizza, hamburgers, and ice cream. So, if we want to lose weight it makes sense that we replace the high-calorie foods with low calorie alternatives. However…

If you eat three healthy meals a day you will only succeed in starving yourself.

While we may lose weight by doing this, it’s difficult to maintain a diet that consists of three low calorie meals over the long-term. Many of us will tend to binge on one of our daily meals, or perhaps the starvation pains kick-in after a couple weeks. Even though some weight loss has occurred, the weight will often return once the old eating habits take over. This is the diet roller-coaster.

If you can relate, take comfort in knowing that your chances of succeeding with such a diet is extremely small. In fact, had you kept it up for a long time you may have caused yourself some additional health problems. Failure is almost unavoidable since your body has mechanisms in place to prevent you from starving.

The weight loss results from eating in this manner are not worth the pain and mental distress that comes with borderline starvation. I’m not sure about you, but I’d rather be fat and happy than thin and miserable by eating in this manner. Life is far too short. The simple fact of the matter is there are not enough calories in three meals of healthy food to keep your body functioning as it should.

Unless you recently won a hotdog eating championship and/or have an unnaturally large stomach, it’s unrealistic to eat your required number of calories each day by only eating three healthy meals. This is where eating every three hours enters the picture.

Eating five or six healthy meals a day enables you to lose weight while practically stuffing yourself.

Generally speaking, good natural health foods are lower in calories than their processed counterparts. 300 calories of healthy food is very filling compared to the 300 calories of a hamburger (small part of a whole burger) which will leave you hungry for more.

As I already mentioned, the 300 calorie healthy meal won’t cut it when three meals will only total 900 calories. You won’t last long like that, especially men. However, try eating 300 calories every few hours and you’ll be getting 1500 to 1800 calories a day depending on if you go with five or six meals.  As long as these calorie numbers are less than the calories needed to maintain your current weight, you will lose weight while eating every three hours!  See, no need to starve yourself!

Would you rather eat three healthy meals and starve, or eat healthy meals every three hours and still lose weight?
