Sakshi: That’s amazing. What tips did your trainer give you?
Pooja: Mostly on how to exercise properly, but the best advice I got was to bring change my eating habits. Instead of eating 3 times a day, he told me to eat 5 times a day for optimum weight management.
Sakshi: Are you kidding me? That doesn’t make any sense. Apparently if you eat more, than how do you lose weight?
Pooja: There is more to it than meets the eye. Actually, I’m taking the same amount of calories. I eat five smaller meals a day. That’s the magic of dietary protein and fiber. Basically, it naturally speeds up the metabolism and helps to burn fat at a rapid pace.”
