How can eating more often help boost my metabolism?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Here's a surprising fact about metabolism: If you eat more often, you'll speed it up. Make sure to eat regularly, which means three meals a day, plus two healthy snacks. And remember to eat within an hour of waking up to keep your body from going into hunger overdrive. To keep your metabolism humming, adhere to this schedule:

  • 6-8 a.m.: Breakfast
  • 10 a.m.: Snack
  • 12-2 p.m.: Lunch
  • 3-5 p.m.: Snack
  • 5-7 p.m.: Dinner
  • Don't eat after 8 p.m.

Don't skip your snacks. Research has shown that people who snack on 250 calories three times per day eat less at regular meals and have higher metabolic rates.
