Ive heard snacking through out the day is better then huge meals because it keeps your metabolism going but like you said, it's how much.

Horse shit. I do intermittent fasting. It helped me lose weight when I was a fat fuck, and it keeps the weight off as my body burns fat between my 2 meals a day. (I do Keto)

The thing I hate about debates like these is the fact that every person is different. Sometimes, what is good for you in terms of diet is not so good for other people. Im not 'excusing', but for some people, eat less more times a day is ok, and for other, eating less and less times a day is perfect. There's no absolute truth guys, we don't know the life and metabolism of everyone. Theres no excuse to be a fat fuck tho.

That's a myth however eating less for few meals a day can help you to control your portions if you know how to do it. It also can help you to get full on less food since you will get used to eating less.

You however can lose just as much weight just eating one large meal a day. All about calories in and out.

Some people feel several small meals will prevent cravings, make sure you don't go into "sturhvashion mode," catabolize muscle, etc.

Some people feel eating everything in a small window and then fasting the rest of the day will allow you to burn more fat and control your insulin levels, control insulin sensitivity, etc.

There are studies backing both choices. Since in the end they both have pros and cons, I feel worrying more about how much you eat and picking the method that works best for you is the way to go.

It's a myth that's been disproven by science repeatedly. It also doesn't matter what time of day you eat at.

Now, just like with eating healthy food, eating regularly throughout the day will make you more satiated and less hungry or peckish, so it's easier to not constantly be eating. It also helps if you can keep yourself occupied with work or hobbies (such as working out), which gives you something to concentrate on and keep mind off food, so that every little craving doesn't send you running to the fridge. All these, while helpful, will do nothing for weight loss if you eat too much, because it's CICO at the end of the day.
