Someone asked me a very interesting question the other day that really showed the importance of eating big meals.
But I’m obese, should I still be eating 5 or 6 Big meals each day?
You didn’t get obese eating 6 big meals a day of spinach, avocado, wild salmon, broccoli, tomatos, chicken breasts or olive oil.
You became obese by binge eating on cookies, ice cream and fast food.
The reason it’s impossible to binge on grass-fed beef, asparagus, turkey breast and quinoa is because those high nutrient foods will nourish your body by shutting off the cravings food back lop from the brain.
My Amanda called this meal her "craving killer". This meal was so Loaded full of healthy calories her cravings didn't stand a chance!
How in the world did Amanda eat Bigger meals and still drop 6.5" from her waist? Simple, because those big healthy meals crushed her cravings and prevented her from binge eating on junk.
Unlike someone who binge eats ice cream and can devour an entire half gal of chocolate fudge, they might be well fed but they aren't being nourished by those empty kcals.
Your brain craves it's daily requirements of kcals, vitamins and minerals and if those needs aren't being met then you're likely to keep eating sugary filth until your belly is busting at the seams.
