Eating 5 or 6 small meals instead of 3 big meals shrinks the size of your stomach.

Exercising daily with variation in techniques, green tea (personally i'd say at least 2 a day), lots of water. I also agree with having smaller more frequent meals instead of 3 larger meals, as I personally feel better doing this anyway, and my stomach has been much flatter since I adopted this routine.

I find counting calories to be working great. Just burn more then you take in.

Creating a daily 500 calorie deficit will get you rid of 1 pound/week. Work out hard at least 3-4 times a week, eat less and drink lots of water.

I stepped up my calorie counting 3 weeks ago and lost 9 pounds since then.

Eating smaller meals doesn't "shrink" the size of your stomach. Neither does it make you lose weight at a faster rate while ingesting the same amount of calories. The difference between 6 meals a day and 2 meals a day, pertaining to weight loss, is insignificant.

It's all about personal preference. If eating 6 meals a day leaves you more satiated than 3 meals a day, eat 6 meals a day. If 2 meals a day works better around your schedule, don't feel like it's the end of the world.

OP, if you want to lose weight: figure out your macros, calories, and count your calories. PM me if you want me to calculate these for you. :)

Just want to throw in my 2 cents. I train MMA and my girlfriend is a naturopath nutritionist, and she's passed on a load of useful info to me which has helped my training massively. I'm ripped and I know a large part of it is down to my diet.

The crucial thing about how many meals per day/ size of meals is blood sugar. The theory goes, that if you eat say 5 meals per day, with no more than 3 hours between meals (and these meals should contain a balance of brown carbs, lean protein and vegetables, organic preferably) then your blood sugar levels stay more constant througout the day. The reason this is good, is because when our blood sugar levels drop, we get that post lunch dip, which makes us reach for the fatty, sugary foods, which make us fat and lethargic. More constant blood sugar levels means our energy levels remain more consistently high, which means we make better decisions about what food to eat.

I agree that insulin sensitivity is vital aspect in calorie partitioning if that is what you are referring to??

I haven't heard about the "food decision" aspect of it though. Thanks for informing me :)

*no sarcasm intended* I'm glad that you gave some advice. I love learning new things about nutrition and such! :)

OP, like I said in my previous post, whatever works for you, DO IT. If my method sucks for you, go with the previous posters. People get caught up on what other people say is the "right" way of doing it; while for you, other ways may be more effective. It's all about what works for YOU.

Hope this helps!

I'm using Eric Wong's Strength and Conditioning guide at the moment, and there's an excellent section on nutrition. I kind of understand the relationship between blood sugar and insulin, but I think he explains it much better,

"Eating less, more often is all about controlling your insulin levels. You want to control your insulin levels because insulin is the fat storage hormone, if you have high levels of insulin, you have high levels of fat storage. Your cells will also become more resistant to insulin, thus you’ll need more insulin to get the same effect, causing more fat storage, and more resistance, and the cycle continues until you’re fat and you don’t know what to do!

When you eat less often, your blood sugar levels have bigger peaks and valleys, causing your insulin to follow suit. Since insulin is the fat storage hormone, when your insulin peaks, it puts your body into a fat storage mode."

I personally feel better doing this anyway, and my stomach has been much flatter since I adopted this routine.
