Tip No. 4: Eat several mini-meals during the day

If you eat fewer calories than you burn, you’ll lose weight. But when you’re hungry all the time, eating fewer calories can be a challenge. People who eat 4-5 meals or snacks per day are better able to control their appetite and weight. It is better to divide your daily calories into smaller meals or snacks and enjoying most of them earlier in the day — dinner should be the last time you eat.
