@ lobsteriffic well when i try 2 meals a day i can usually go 3-4 days eating 2 meals but then i always cave after a while and fall off the 2 meal thing. buttt it is the best option for me as i too, will over eat if eating 5-6 smaller meals but i just always keep hearing 5-6 is better for you??
We used to have a few members on here who were using 'intermittant fasting' (check out leangains.com if you are interested) and were having pretty good progress eating a few times a day rather than 5-6 'mini meals'. A few of those members don't post that much anymore.
What makes you fall off the 2 meal thing? Hunger? Although I only eat two meals, they are typically pretty big meals. Sometimes I get hungry in the AM, but I have coffee or tea and usually my hunger goes away.
At the end of the day though, I think Yeti has a point in that if you find smaller meals works better for you on some days, I don't think you need to feel badly about that.
