Metabolism Myth #3: Eating more frequently will speed up my metabolism.

Have you ever thought that eating six mini meals will help you lose weight faster than three larger meals throughout the day? Think again! Every time you eat, your metabolism does go to work to digest and absorb those nutrients. But research shows that your total energy expenditure isn’t different whether you eat every three hours or not. However, going many hours between meals can leave you feeling ravenous and less likely to control those portion sizes later on.
