Eating smaller and more frequent meals throughout the day is what increases your metabolism and helps you burn more fat. You are less likely to overeat because you are relatively satiated. You can actually eat less calories throughout the day if you're eating smaller meals than if you were to stuff your face with tons and tons of calories with the heavier meals. In addition, the body can digest and utilize smaller meals more for energy and muscle growth than just storing it as body fat if you are eating heavier meals.
I follow these exact principles in my own diet. The MP45 Workout & Meal Plan Program follows this principle of eating smaller and more frequent meals. You get exactly the best types of foods for muscle growth, fat loss and overall energy. I highly recommend following this meal plan guide in addition to the workout program to really see an incredible transformation with your physique!
