One big nutrition question that's always floating around is: How many meals should you eat in a day? The number of meals and size of meals is something that comes up again and again, especially in diet plans, diet books, and diet programs. Some people swear by 6 meals per day and then of course we all know the classic 3 meals per day. It can be tricky to figure out who to listen to and what is really right. So, with that in mind, I'm sharing with you how I personally structure my own meals, which also happens to be the meal pattern that I think works well for a lot of people. I like this meal pattern because it leaves you feeling satisfied and it fits well with life so you have time to do things that aren't eating and food related.
