Too much eating and chronically elevated blood sugar is an issue as well. That's why I don't buy into the whole "6 small meals a day" BS. Spiking your blood sugar is healthy - it promotes insulin sensitivity - but when you are constantly snacking so much your blood sugar is elevated more than it is baseline...that's a whole new problem.

When you're snacking on food from the moment you wake up until bed, even under controlled calories where you aren't eating a surplus and sticking to whole foods, I question how healthy it is. Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't see how chronically elevated blood sugar and insulin is healthy, either. Go awhile without food, eat a good quality meal of a healthy size, then go until you're hungry again. That's my opinion.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
