Daily Health Tips: How Many Meals Should I Eat Daily?


Q: Hi Doc! Is it good to eat more than 3 square meal a day? What type of sugar intake is good for the body?
A: Thanks for writing in. To answer your first question, I will lift a portion straight out of my book, Just For The Health Of It With Dr Ketch, which answers that question. Here goes…
Q: How many meals should I eat in a day?
A: The jury is really still out on this one. One school of thought insists that small mini-meals every two to three hours is great and improves metabolism. The other school of thought claims that there is no significant finding that confirms that this is any better than the regular 3 square meals we’ve been used to.

Well, worldwide, we’re all agreed on the fact that more proteins, fruits, veggies and complex carbs are the way to go. If you add portion control to the mix ensuring that you have the right amount of food with fruits /veggies making up half of the plate, complex carbs taking up, a quarter of the plate and proteins in the last part of the plate, then you should be good. At this point, it won’t really matter whether you’re doing 6 mini-meals or 3 main meals all day…you’ll still be able to keep the weight off (with some exercise in the mix too :D) and really just be healthy.

As for what type of sugars to take? Less refined sugar is absolutely the best for you. Foods with low glycaemic index are very useful here.
