Re: the six small meals a day bullshit
Interesting, and I agree on the impact upon metabolism.
However - are there not other benefits from eating small regular meals. I've always assumed that that since digestion takes a finite time, then having a number of small meals must be beneficial in terms of absorbing nutrients from the food. ie. if you eat a bucket-full of food in one go then the body would only be able to absorb a small percentage of available nutrients, whereas if you were eating smaller meals more regularly then you would absorb a much greater nutrient content overall.
