Continuous Eating vs Intermittent Fasting

Posted by Silver Fern™ Brand on

Tradition tells us that eating three meals per day, with frequent snacks in between, is good for maintaining stable blood sugar and insulin levels, as well as losing weight. Recent scientific studies are suggesting that intermittent fasting, with only two meals a day, is actually a better approach. Which way is best? Blood Sugar Diabetes’ recent article, "Intermittent Fasting Calorie Restriction: Two Meals a Day Is Ideal, But Which Two Is Up To You", helps to answer the question of whether eating all day is better than intermittent fasting.


“The most obvious risk with spreading out your meals to morning, noon, and evening is overeating. Other less obvious risks are biological changes that result in metabolic dysfunction, subsequent weight gain, and diminished health.”

“According to Dr. Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California, where he studies meal timing and calorie restriction, even three meals a day may be too much.”

“Based on his research, he’s convinced the fewer meals you eat, the better you’ll fare overall.” 

“While I’m still convinced that intermittent fasting is an important strategy for effective weight loss and disease prevention, it likely doesn’t matter which meal you skip — breakfast or dinner — as long as you skip one of them.”

“If you have a physically taxing job, you are likely better off eating a solid breakfast and lunch, and then skipping dinner. The key to remember is to only eat within a window of six to eight consecutive hours each day, and avoiding food for at least three hours before bedtime.”

That said, none of this probably applies to normal weight teens or growing children. They likely need three square meals a day unless they’re overweight. For kids and teens, the type of food they eat would be a primary consideration.”
