According to a research conducted at University of Warwick has challenged a common notion for loosing weight. Usually overweight people are suggested to eat in small portions 5 meals a day but this research suggests that following this particular diet does not help in boosting your metabolism or in anyway leading to weight loss rather one should concentrate calorie count that actually matters for shedding weight. The researchers further found that eating good number of times would cause damage. It can even increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease.
The lead author, Dr Milan Kumar Piya explains, “Our studies have identified two main findings; firstly that the size or frequency of the meal doesn't affect the calories we burn in a day, but what matters most for losing weight is counting calories. Secondly, by carrying more weight, more endotoxin enters the circulation to cause inflammation and eating more often will exacerbate this risk which has been linked to metabolic diseases such as type-2 diabetes.”
