Hello Dr.Elizabeth,I know that we need to take food frequently, but the question is what is the best period between the meal and/or snack?? thanks.
The amount of time that is best between a meal or snack will vary depending on the size and content of meals and snacks, individual needs, and in some cases, certain medical situations. Some people prefer to eat smaller meals with a snack in between, while other prefer to have three meals only. The best guide is to eat in response to feelings of true hunger and need to eat. Establishing a regular meal pattern will help your body to become hungry at regular times so that you can plan your meals and snacks. Including fruits and vegetables in your meals and snacks will help you to feel more satisfied after meals and snacks and will help to prevent feelings of hunger too soon after eating.
