JessicaRT - the idea that eating frequent meals keeps your metabolism up is outdated. I believe you have be 36 hours without food before you metabolism drops (not 2-4 hours).

That is often suggested for a habit reason not a biological reason. Some people need to eat frequently otherwise they think they are going without food and then justify over doing it. Biologically you can eat 1-2 meals and be fine or you can eat 5-6 meals. The trick is to find out what works for you.

Tomorrow is weigh in day. I'll still be in the 190s but maybe in a week or two I'll have to switch threads

Keep up the good work ladies!
