5-6 small meals a day for maximum weight loss..
I am just returning to the fitness game this time to stay for life. I know all about the 5-6 small meals a day to keep your metabolism going. Right now I run 5-6 miles 6 days a week, and weight lift 3 days a week. I just recently went from 3 meals a day to 5-6 because I know thats what I need to do in order to see maximum results. My goal is to lose weight, and gain muscle.
My question is though, if I am not really that hungry when it comes time for some of my small in between snack meals should I skip them or eat them anyway? Its absolutely not like I can't eat it's just that I don't have that hungry feeling. I was thinking though that since I just recently (about a week or so ago) went back to the 5-6 a day maybe my metabolism isn't at top speed yet.
Considering my goals are weight loss and muscle gain but more weight loss what do you guys suggest? My meals go like this.
meal 1: Bagel with 2 eggs and a slice of cheese on it for breakfast
Snack 2: Protien bar
Meal3: Dinner consisting of chicken vegetables and a bowl of soup.
snack 4: a little bag of jacks link beef jerky 100 calorie size bag
Meal 5: Last meal of the day. A can of tuna mixed with mayonaisse with some cheese.
I have lost a considerable amount of weight following this diet, minus the snack 2 and 4 that I just recently added. Just wondering what your thoughts are concerning the way sometimes I am not really hungry for my in between meals. I am wondering if on the occasions I am not hungry, I should just skip them, or eat them anyway to keep my metabolism high.
Thanks for any and all input.
