Eat Often

Aim for three healthy meals and two small snacks a day, which means you’re eating something around every three hours. A 2010 Swedish study involving more than 3,000 people found that those who ate more than three times a day had a lower body mass index and waist circumference; consumed more fiber and less fat; and drank less alcohol than those who limited their eating sessions to three or less. Eating more often keeps your metabolism humming, and prevents you from getting super hungry.
