 The benefits are you can eat more...more often that is! When you graze (eat every 2-3 hours) you tend to eat smaller portions because you don't feel as hungry. Always start the day with a healthy breakfast, which is what it says (breaking the fast). Then have a snack midway in between your breakfast and lunch. Again, after your lunch before your dinner. A small snack before bed is also acceptable. You want these snacks to be about 200 calories or less. If you keep these five to six snacks/meals small, your body will adjust to this and eventually you will feel fuller on less food.
