    I always enjoy learning about nutrition. One subject that your guest brought up repeatedly was the need to eat often, throughout the day. It was suggested that this increases metabolism. However, several journal articles refute this to the point that most nutritionists no longer make the claim. Is there another good reason to eat often during the day? Is recovery improved by eating often?

      Hi Blair! Coach Amber here from MetPro. 😊 The main reason I suggest eating frequently throughout the day is to help regulate your blood sugar, which in return can improve your metabolism. Eating every 2-3 hours and not going more than 4 hours helps keep your blood sugar in balance throughout the day compared to eating 3 larger meals. Regulating blood sugar can help control cravings, appetite & energy levels, especially for runners. 🙂
