Our expert says:
Both facts are actually correct. Research has shown that 'nibblers' who eat 6 small, healthy low-fat meals a day tend to be slimmer than 'gorgers' who eat 3 large meals a day. However, the emphasis is on healthy and low-fat and low-energy food if you are a nibbler. It will not help to eat fatty, high-energy food all day long. Many individuals also tend to eat because of what are know as 'external cues' - for example, time of day. When it is lunchtime they eat a large meal even if they are not really hungry. In such a case eating a small, healthy snack would be more productive.
