Eat more (often) and lose weight???

Did you know that you can boost your metabolism, thus increasing your ability to lose weight, by eating more often?  Instead of eating 3 (or less) meals a day, try to add two additional, smaller meals/snacks.  Eating 5 times a day versus 3 will allow your body to keep nourished, reduce feelings of hunger/cravings and more effectively process the food.  The key, however, is to eat smaller portions more frequently, not to just add to 2 more huge meals.  A good mid-morning snack is fruit, good mid-afternoon snacks are hummus with whole wheat pitas, brown rice, or a sweet potato, and good evening snacks are nuts or seeds.
