Of course, the devil can quote scriptures for his purposes, but here is a link
to a report about the value of eating less often, which I committed to nearly 42 months ago and which has been instrumental in helping me tame my binge habit. This study was looking at people who ate two "larger" meals a day, breakfast and lunch. I am NOT advocating that, as I believe if an eating program doesn't account for a social life, it is doomed. But the commentator goes on to say that the value was found even when spread out over three meals. Bingo!
Not that I think that anything that shows it creates more weight loss is to be revered. It has to be sustainable! And I found after 7 years that eating very carefully chosen meals /snacks 5x a day wasn't worth sustaining because it wasn't leading me to reduce bingeing. Eating less often has. And I can still love food! I just don't have to eat it to love it.
