6 meals per day is a new CW put forth by the "eating clean" movement as championed by Tosca Reno and her followers. The idea is to "pack a cooler" of raw veggies and eat six tiny meals per day to keep your metabolism up, starting with those moronic steel cut oats. And drink 2-3 liters of water. If you're hungry or don't feel like eating, then your meals were too big.
I tried it for about a month. All I could do was eat another baggie of stuff and run to the loo. I could get NO work done whatsoever. And I GAINED two pounds.
Then I started Primal and did Leptin Reset and dang, I'm luvvin' this 5-6 hours between meals.
