Eating small meals several times a day can decrease your chances of becoming obese compared to those who eat fewer meals

Eating small meals several times a day can decrease your chances of becoming obese compared to those who eat fewer meals. A study in the American Journal of Epidemiology (July 2003) found several interesting results. Participants were 450-percent more likely to be obese if they regularly skipped breakfast, but 45-percent less likely to be obese if they ate four or more meals daily. The study also showed that people who ate in restaurants were heavier, likely because restaurants serve larger meals with more fat.
