Many FMS [and CFS] patients have found that eating frequent mini-meals helps in keeping energy levels higher and also helps to maintain a normal weight. Studies show that eating more frequently throughout the day, as opposed to three heavy meals, will boost your metabolism and productivity. Research has found that people who eat two meals or less during the day have a slower metabolic rate (the speed at which your body burns calories, and the rate that we all want to go faster) versus those who eat three or more times a day.
