Is it true that humans have to eat 6 times a day?

james. Six mini meals a day are recommended for weight and energy maintenance. You are maintaining a constant balance in your blood glucose levels, etc. Try to eat "as close to the sun" as possible, fresh vegetables and fruits can be combined in so many ways. Whatever you eat habitually, your body will begin to "crave", whether it is a pizza with 10 toppings, or a salad with 10 veggies. Bon appetit!

Not really, but it helps to eat small meals several times a day rather than three big ones. I guess 6 is a good number if you're going for this approach - I eat 5 times a day: three moderate meals and two small snacks in between. :)

The number of times we eat is strictly cultural depending on the availability of food. To control blood sugar, a few small meals would be best.

You do not HAVE to eat 6 times a day. You CAN eat 6 times a day. sometimes I only eat once a day if I am busy or forget. Sometimes eat a lot in one day when it is the holidays or something.

People say you should eat 3 meals a day, but you do not have to. You can eat 1 large meal or 6 small meals. Really you need to just make sure you are taking in enough calories to live.

If anybody is not a blood pressure patient or does not have any problem which says not to eat too much then i think eating 3 times properly and having a little snacks in between would be a perfect diet for a normal weighted person. =)

You do not have to eat 6 meals every day. You can if you want to though. Some people eat 5 or 6 meals a day instead of 3 big meals because it keeps the metabolism going. I would recommend eating 5-6 small meals a day, but like I said before you don't have to. Most people only eat 4 times a day or less because they're busy.
