Now coming to the concept of frequent meals theory - first, its a myth that it is in anyway better that regular 2 or 3 meals a day. Why? That's another blog-post. I wish to discuss the practical considerations in our country.
Lastly, how "blind" do you have to be to believe the frequent meals theory in a country like ours where religious/ritualistic fasting is the norm! From every sect of Hindus having their own fasts, to Muslims' Ramzan to Christians' Lent... people actually often LOSE weight during the fasts! Fasting (let aside the 3-meals a day norm) goes completely against the frequent meals theory and yet why do you see people lose weight during their religious fasts?! Their metabolism must be "destroyed" and they should be gaining weight right??!
In the next post, I'll share my thoughts on why calorie-counting is not practically very feasible in the India.
