Need to watch your cholesterol? Cut your portion sizes and eat more often. Oxford University researchers found that people who ate five or six times a day had a five percent lower total cholesterol count and were 45 percent more likely to be able to sustain their target weight, than people who ate only once or twice a day.
Kick-start your day with a fruit smoothie; eat some breakfast cereal an hour or so later; make sure you eat a sturdy lunch (include fish or skinless chicken and lots of fruit and veggies); snack on something healthy (e.g. rice cakes with low-fat cottage cheese) during mid-afternoon; and eat a light supper before 7 pm
