Will this help me lose weight? Eat 6 small lean cuisines or meals per day.

Will this help me lose weight? Eat 6 small lean cuisines or meals per day.

Depends on calories: Most lean cuisine meals are about 300 calories a piece, so 6 a day would be 1800 calories. Depending on your size, age, and gender you have a resting metabolic rate which burns some calories (for a 150 lb person about 1400 a day) and if you exercise you could end up burning 300 to 400 more so that would mean you would just burn slightly more than you take in.

My friend (morbidly obese) wants to try lean gains (intermittent fasting) to lose weight. I am concerned for her. Is this safe or even healthy?

Fasting: Fasting is never a good way to lose weight. It generally slows your metabolism and contributes to the yo-yo effect of losing weight and regaining it back plus more. There really isn't anything healthy about fasting. Conversely, eating multiple (3-5) meals (healthy & small portions) is better for your metabolism and weight loss (but you have to exercise too). ...Read more
