How many times you eat a day does affect your weight loss. You might think eating big meals three times a day can speed up your weight loss but it’s not as easy as that.

Your body tends to send hunger signals to your brain and you just can’t help but end up eating another meal. That is normally the reason you gain weight. Try to eat in a small portions frequently (up to 6 meals a day).
