"Let’s get some solid clarification on the timing of your meals. Not only do I not want you skipping meals, I also don’t want you “grazing” throughout the day. I don’t want you “eating small meals”—you know, the six-small-meals-to-boost-metabolism theory. I think that’s utter crap. When you snack throughout the day or eat many small meals, you release insulin. This insulin release promotes fat storage, because your body is trying to burn off and utilize a constant flow of sugar to the bloodstream from nonstop eating.
Also, we often don’t remember to count the small snacks we grab when considering our daily calorie allowance. Studies show that many people don’t feel satiated from a small meal, either, which can then cause them to overeat throughout the day to make up for that lack of satisfaction.
I want you to eat every four hours. There’s only one time of day when I want you to snack, and that’s between lunch and dinner. Your snack should be something substantive. Eating every four hours stabilizes your blood sugar, optimizes insulin production, and manages hunger—all of which are critical to weight loss and weight management."

Sweet Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipe
 Ingredients: 7 large frozen strawberries, 1 frozen banana, and 1/3 cup water. 
Method: Thaw the frozen fruit in cold water until it’s all just a little mushy. Cut the banana up into smaller pieces so it’ll blend more easily. Put all of the ingredients into a blender, blend to your desired consistency, top with chia seeds, then enjoy!
