Some people are successful with the 3 meals only, others (like me) go for 5-6 meals that are seemingly interchangeable with snacks. But I do revert to big dinner sometimes, no doubt.

Another element is the when of eating. Some have success with big breakfasts and small dinners, others eat perfectly balanced calorie meals for each one, and others have small breakfasts and big dinners. Whatever works for you, as long as you get in the range during that day!

The pp is right--it's a question not just of 'fullness,' but of maintaining a consistent blood-sugar level.

Most dietitians recommend three moderate meals with small snacks in between. Others find that a six-small-meal schedule is best. You need to practice and find what keeps your energy high and your system on track.

I workout from
what calories I need for the day..

I divid these calories over 3 main meals and 2 snacks..

I find it isn't healthy to just eat one meal- we need to give our body a constant flow of calories to keep our blood sugar steady so it doesn't suddenly drop and make us over hungry..

Suit up and fight for your life. War is war, no matter what front your fighting..

Does anyone know if there is any information out there that coveres what a healthy amount of calories to eat at one particular time is? Every so often, I'll "splurge" and eat a meal that's 1000 calories or a bit over, but it will keep be full all day. Is that bad?
