A myth that has been debunked long and proven otherwise again and again .

Your car example is wrong. If your car can go 700 miles on a single tank of fuel , it is more efficient to only small amounts of gas in it and stopping every few miles to refill , or does it make more sense to fill the tank and go as far as you can ? That would make more sense .

Additionally, each body is different. To force someone to work well in three large meals to 6 small to change it will be counterproductive and likely to hinder the efforts of weight loss of the person.

The most logical is what works best for the person in question, and what they can handle. From a personal perspective , 5-6 meals not work for me at all . I was going to end hunger and probably as much more than I'm doing now with three decent meals .

The standard application , the rules of a one size fits all (based on outdated studies) is not a way to approach this issue at all in my opinion .

It also expands the stomach walls ... ? Really? Unlike ? And why exactly is that a problem ? ?

Similarly, eating 1-2 , 4-6 Big Food Front Smallest and Effects blood sugar Frequently , bile production , EXPANDS stomach lining creates problems Reflux limitations Nutrient Absorption .

Sure, Flower Body work both ways .... But para personality Aiming Weight Loss , Have To apply corner Scientific logic para Way Best Results
