Eat Healthy And Cheap Smaller, More Frequent Meals

It's no secret that eating smaller, more frequent meals is good for your health (especially if you're trying to lose weight). Weblog Little People Wealth notes that it also cuts down on your food costs.

If you're eating smaller meals throughout the day, you're not splurging on big, expensive meals — you're usually just buying a bit more of the grocery store's cheapest items:

6 small meals a day rather than 3 large ones will increase your metabolism, helping with weight loss. The good part about this is that most of these small meals should include raw fruits and vegetables, which tend to cost the least of any food group in the grocery store. Eating raw fruits and vegetables is like giving your digestive system a workout, which increases its functionality, also helping in weight loss.

    This is actually untrue. Eating smaller more frequent meals has no greater effect on metabolism than eating larger and less frequently. See: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19943985

    There are many more studies like this :)
