Our expert says:
'Nibbling' diets where one eats 6 or more small meals a day instead of 'gorging' on 3 large meals, have been shown to be highly successful provided the food eaten on the nibbling diet is low in fat and high in fibre. Your body will not 'hold on to carbs' - this is a myth. Carbs only contribute 16 kJ per gram, while fat provides 37 kJ per gram -a great difference. Carbs that are rich in dietary fibre contribute even less to your energy intake. So use the diet as prescribed and you should see good results.
