Eat Six Meals A Day To Burn More Fat, Experts Say

Most of us have a few extra pounds we could stand to burn. Well, those of us who work at a desk all day, anyway. And sitting all day is not the best way to start. The trouble for us, as it is for everyone else in the world, is all the conflicting and confusing information out there. What's the fad diet this week? Should we be avoiding carbs? Fats? Sugar? Cut dairy? Go high protein? Go vegetarian? Go vegan?

With so many people looking for ways to trim their figures, many scientists and nutrition experts have devoted their time to the problem, and some solid, research-backed information is finally coming to light. 

Even if you already think about your meals — what's going on your plate, what's going into your meals, how many servings of vegetables you're getting, lean meats versus red meats, fiber content, and so on — you probably don't think about how often you eat. But, according to sports nutrition consultant Michelle Adams-Arent, how often you eat, and how many meals you eat during the day, can make a noticeable impact on your weight management.

Weight loss and weight management is a battle for everyone. 

It takes unparalleled discipline, time, and effort — it's an endless struggle against temptations and stresses. You need all the help you can get, but there are no shortcuts.

If dieting sounds like a fate worse than death to you, you're not alone.

Nobody wants to say goodbye to their favorite flavors for the rest of their lives. You don't necessarily have to, however, but you do need to make some changes and sacrifices.

But what happens if you've made those sacrifices and you're still not seeing the results you want?

As sports nutrition consultant and trainer Michelle Adams-Arent explains, there are some things you need to keep in mind.

And she has a great strategy for shaping up.

She has experience with these things. She has helped people transform their bodies into fit, high-performance machines.

And she notes that most people don't necessarily want to lose weight. They just want to look different. 

Her secret is a small tweak that anybody can adopt — with a little prep, of course.

Most of us are used to the classic breakfast, lunch, and dinner routine. Michelle wants you to shake that up.

She notes that people who eat six meals a day see better results and lose more body fat than those of us who stick to the traditional three.

And if you think she advocates for those six meals to be the same, boring, flavorless pile of weeds and nuts, think again.

She has seen how spreading out a day's typical calorie count across six meals works better than eating it in three larger meals.

Note that that's without a change in weight — that's just fat loss.

That said, improving nutrition is still important.

Eating six hamburgers and deep-fried candy bars every day isn't going to cut it.

In a day, you should be getting a gram of protein per pound of body weight, Michelle says.

So probably 20-25 grams of protein every three hours, with some resistance training, can really amp up your results.
