I’m a “stick to the basics” kind of person when it comes to fitness and health. If you stick to the basics and do the work, you’ll end up in a ‘good place’ with your health and fitness.

So when I get asked, “How often should I eat?” I start with the basics.

3 square meals per day

Did you know?

The origin of ‘square meals’ is thought to come from sailors who would eat meals on square pieces of wood (as plates). Eating a square meal meant that you ate an actual meal, not just a biscuit and water or tea. This carried on through time to the adage “3 square meals a day”, meaning to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

  • This cadence of eating allows you to eat a reasonable sized meal, providing energy and fullness.
  • A satisfying meal supports recovery and repair of muscle from exercise.
  • This frequency respects the social aspect of eating.
  • I like 3 meals because I don’t have the time or energy to think about food all day long. This makes it easier to plan and prepare meals.
  • 3 meals opposed to 5-6 smaller elicits the feeling of 80% fullness. The higher the frequency of meals doesn’t provide enough volume of food and there is not enough protein in each meal.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner consisting of whole, natural foods builds a solid foundation for a good diet. Spending more time improving these meals and controlling the stuff you eat in between will get you to a healthier place.

Keep Moving,
