Do you graze?

I was always under the impression that to keep your metabolism going you should eat small healthy snacks frequently (rather than main meals at set times). I don't know if that was just recommended to keep off hunger and stop binge eating, but came across this today:

It was researched on people with 2 diabetes but wondering if it works on the rest of us

Do you graze to help with dieting/hunger?

I'm not sure what I do is classed as grazing I tend to eat when hungry (need to get out of that habit). I always thought that little but often was good for dieting too.

Noticed that I graze more since (semi) giving up cigarettes. Think I may start smoking again just so I don't eat

Note "eat small healthy snacks frequently" not crisps, chocolate, sandwiches, full jars of Daddy sweets (even if they were yours and you didn't share *huff*) .... Just saying

I graze, well, id happily do it if I didn't stop myself eating everything in sight I should get in the habit of making up healthy snacks so I can pick on them, cos it is meant to ve better for you! I do tend to just eat when hungry though now!

I tend to only graze haha. I am awful at eating proper meals so just snack through the day which isn't good. I would've thought that grazing would keep your metabolism up though and increase weight loss.
