I aim for three 400 calorie meals plus a 400 calorie snack. My calorie allowance is about 1380-1680 so this works great for me. I'm not real strict about it but aiming for 400 calories gets me enough food without going over too much and spreads the calories out thru the day.
I have used this strategy for a long time and it works for me. I eat basically 400 calories at each main meal and one 100-200 calorie snack. If your calorie allotment is higher eat three 400 calorie meals and 2-3 snacks at 100-300 calories depending on your calorie range.
Reading a Spark team member's blog helps us learn. Jenny888 told me about eating 400 calorie dinners and she posted a link from Real Simple for a month''s 400 calorie meals. I read it on Dr. Oz Show Fans team page.
