Dr. Fung dispels the often practiced eating philosophy of consuming 6 small meals every two-three hours. He details why it actually messes with your health and waistline.

Dr. Fung says, “why does the concept of eating all the time make sense?” The analogy of “stoking the fire by eating every few hours” is outdated. Dr. Fung says no studies support that eating 6 small meals per day leads to weight loss. Looking at evolution, people did not eat as frequently as we do now. And, we are fatter than ever. Timing of eating matters. A lot. The goal is to use the energy we take in, rather than store it.
Our metabolism slows as a result of eating the same thing every day, even when you cut calories. “You can’t run on an energy deficit long-term.” When we lose weight with calories in vs calories out, the body adjusts by burning fewer calories. The body adjusts. It’s smart. It does this for survival. Learn the hacks needed to circumvent the inevitable metabolism slow-down!
