I eat several small meals during the day, since I read somewhere that this is better for your body than to eat huge meals like 2 a day or something. So I eat small amounts of food 4 to 5 times a day, during a regular day.

Goood lord [:O] Where does she store all the food in her stomach, how does she digest it [:O]. milk is hard to digest. Neways its nice that she has some healthy food, but in excess I think. Definately its not normal for a 13 year old to eat so much. you should get her checked by a doctor if she has worms in her stomach who gulp down all the food and make her hungry [:D]. I Eat a proper mean only twice a day, in between I do eat once in the evening but that does not account to a meal, its just like a starter. :D. There was a time when I used to keep on eating in small amounts all through out the day, but that would never equal what that girl eats in a day :D.

Hi, I only have 3 times meal in a day,of course, in between, I will have some snack during tea time. From my point of view, taking 3 meals in a day is more than enough. Eating too much may not do good to our body and easily put on weight. Apart from eating, we also need to have some exercise and eat more fruits and vegetables is good for our health. \

I eat more than 3 times a day maybe around 5 to 6 but just small amounts of food so that I keep satiated for the rest of the day. It actually helps with my diet because it speeds up my metabolism and that I don't resort to eating a lot during meals.
