I eat 4 small meals everyday. I tried and tried eating 3 meals but had a really hard time. I started this after reading about a woman who ate 4 small/half meals a day and lost over 40 pounds. I have lost 20 pounds doing this. But I eat like this everyday even on weekends. And I eat exactly what I wa...

I too am interested in the health benefits of intermittent fasting and have tried to do 16/8 but found it difficult to maintain. Martin Berkhan of Leangains.com now recommends a 14 hour fasted phase for his female clients. He calls it the "sweet spot" for women. This is something I can easily do, so...

I would say, if you are full then the meal is over. No saving to eat within an hour. This has happened to me many times. in fact it happened last night. I made a regular bowl of tortilla soup (it was a hearty soup) and I couldn't eat it all. So, that was it. I didn't save it to finish it off 30 minu...

And, in Reinhard's book he says "The basic case for strictness is that it builds habit faster. If you are strict, your appetites learn quickly that it's not worth test the boundaries all the time." and "...strictness makes it easier.

Maybe you sleep in, have a meal and then the other two later on. I guess what I am asking does anyone go by plates a day inst...

Why don't you try 4 small meals a day with some protein at every meal. I have found that if I eat enough protein at breakfast, 20-30 grams, I do much better the rest of the day. :D
