We eat food to get energy. Then how many times you eat in a day. Is it right to eat snacks all the time. I also eat snacks but only at evening time when i spent some time with my family.

I eat three times a day. I'm quite disciplined about eating.I depend mostly on my meals i mean the lunch and the dinner. In the afternoon,I took a light refreshment with tea or coffee with some burgers.

Breakfast, Snack, Lunch,Snack,Dinner,Midnight Snack total 6 times in a day. We don't diet since we are not over weight or so, we would want to gain weight as much as possible. I don't know if this rule does not apply to most MyLotters here since they do mind their diet and all. But don't get me wrong, i am underweight that is why there is no barred for me to eat what i like to eat. As long as i am eating healthy foods like fruits and veggies, i don't think it will harm the body or cause bad to health.

It all depends on how I feel. Some times I feel so week and light headed I grasp at anything to try to feel better.

I eat my 3 small main meals and also eat 3 snack. I find that I lose weight better when I'm eating more throughout the day. I eat a small snack between my meals and a snack in the evening while I'm watching TV.

Hi punmsharma I eat three times a day. And of course I take snacks in the evening. If you are over weight person,then you should take 5,6 small meals a day instead of three heavy meals.That will keep your metabolism always on and so excess calories will be burnt. Eating three times is o.K for a normal person. But what you eat matters most.You should eat a balanced diet.It should have all the nutrients including fat. We should have more vegetables and fruits also in our diet to ensure that that our body gets the Vitamins,minerals,fibers etc. Happy mylotting

I drink a K2O protein water in the morning, it kills some cravings for snaking.. I eat some yogurt or fruit for breakfast/lunch, dinner around 6 and then maybe a snack before bed. But I try to keep from snacking as much as possible. A quick handful of cereal is nice and handy.

I eat several small meals a day. It works better for me than the three square meals. I don't think it is advisable to eat snacks all the time because you might go over your recommended daily calorie requirement. If a person loves to snack, he/she should opt for natural foods such as fruits...

I eat two times in a day now. Before few days it was three times lol. Because Now i am on dieting. :d It's all due to snacks. i used to have snacks in the evening. Now see the result lol. So i would suggest you don't even take snacks. Yes if you eat 1 or 2 times in months then it's fine. Otherwise it's so harm to our body. Happy myloting.
