'Little and often,' she said.
It's advice I've heard before.
After a quick search on the net, I came across an article from the Daily Mail:
'Grazing was the way our body was designed to eat,' says nutritionist Antony Haynes. 'Large meals burden the digestive system, often causing bloating and lowered energy while the body struggles to digest them.
'By eating smaller meals you prevent this, and the body functions more efficiently throughout the day.' When we eat a big meal, the sugar level in our blood rises, but once that meal is digested that blood sugar level falls, taking your energy and mood with it.
The problem is, the bigger the meal, the bigger the crash - and the higher your need for sugary snacks to refuel your body.
'The regular influx of food with a little-and-often approach keeps your energy level stable and makes it easier for you to cope with everything you have to do in a day,' says nutritionist Natalie Savona.
