DEAR DOCTOR K: Does eating several smaller meals throughout the day rather than three larger meals help with weight loss?
DEAR READER:We know that eating fewer calories is important to losing weight, but there is less agreement on the specifics. Are three meals a day best for weight loss? Or is it better to eat more -- or less -- frequently? We can rule out eating fewer than three times a day. You'll feel hungry, making it more likely that you will overeat and choose less healthy foods when you do eat.
