This article written by Shereen Lehman explains why eating smaller but more frequent meals tend to weigh less and eat better than those who had fewer meals. She’s explains that people who are eating few meals tend to eat the most at night and to drink alcohol with meals, both which might contribute to their higher body mass index “a measure of weigh relative to height”. So this article is stating that “eating more frequently throughout the day leads to a greater intake of healthier, lower calorically-dense foods, which in turn leads to a lower overall caloric intake and BMI,” said Elena Tovar, a clinical dietitian at Montefiore Medical Center in New York who wasn’t involved in the study. They studied and reported that the participants who are six or more had a lower calorie intake than those who ate less than 4 times a day.

The role of the photograph is there to show an appetizing, healthy, small meal and by doing this is shows that you don’t have to just eat vegetables and greens to be “eating healthy” and to have a lower BMI. This image is there to how that you just have to eat correctly and not rely on 4 or less meals a day, it’s ok to eat more and it’s actually better for you as long as you know what you are eating and how big your meals are every time you eat.
