The Six Meals a Day Diet
A six meals a day diet is your best option for losing weight and gaining lean muscle mass quickly. Eating 6 small, protein-rich meals and snacks - spaced 2 to 3 hours apart - has been proven to be the most effective way to keep your metabolism going strong and to ensure that your energy levels remain constant throughout the day.

Combined with a good strength training program, a six meals a day diet will quickly transform your body into a lean, toned, fat-burning machine!

Here are the major benefits of following a six meals a day diet:

  • more energy
  • less hunger
  • reduced food cravings
  • control blood sugar levels & insulin production
  • reduce body fat storage
  • maintain & increase lean muscle mass

Obviously it takes a good amount of planning, preparation, and persistence to get into the habit of eating this frequently. When you're on a six meals a day diet you must prepare your food well ahead of time. Every meal should contain good carbs, lean protein, and healthy fats in about a 40:30:30 ratio. No, it's certainly not "easy" - but once you get into the habit of preparing your meals in advance and eating delicious, healthy food every few hours you'll see some amazing changes.

You'll also feel a lot better!

Many fitness pros - including top bodybuilders and fitness models - manage to get in six meals per day by cooking a lot of healthy food (ie chicken breast, steamed vegetables, brown rice, etc.) one day per week, putting each meal into a Tupperware container, and then taking a few meals with them to work each day.

Also, most people who follow a six meals a day diet make use of 'portable' foods like whey protein powder, meal replacement powders, protein bars, canned tuna/chicken, beef/turkey jerky, nuts, seeds, etc. Protein shakes especially are considered indispensable by most bodybuilders, many of whom drink at least 2 or 3 each day!
