Eating Fewer, Larger Meals May Prove Healthier For Obese Women

A report of a study conducted in america stating that obese women would benefit from eating fewer larger meals a day to tackle their metabolism. Its research states that eating smaller servings  frequently may not help in weight management for obese women.

Heden and other MU researchers studied how meal frequency affected blood-sugar and blood-fat levels in eight obese women throughout two 12-hour periods on two separate days. All of the women consumed 1,500 calories. During the two different testing days, the participants consumed three 500-calorie liquid meals or six 250-calorie liquid meals.

Throughout the 12-hour time frames, researchers tested sugar and fat levels in the women's blood every 30 minutes. Women who consumed three meals had significantly lower fat in their blood.
