Is eating two meals a day healthy for a 31 year old male who weights 160 pounds ?

That depends: Hi. Not if they're egg mcmuffins and big macs. If you eat meals consisting of HEALTHY food twice daily, that's fine. It's utter nonsense to think you need 3 meals/day. If you're only hungry for two, eat two. However WHAT you eat should be healthy food: whole grains, nuts and seeds, fruits and veggies, nonfat dairy, olive and canola oil, lean meats; best prepared at home. NO fast food. Good luck! ...Read more

As : As a board certified physician nutrition specialist, i can state that there is no good evidence that your eating pattern is bad for you. You may be interested in my blog post below on eating multiple times a day. If you feel well and are at healthy weight no problem. I am a bit concerned about your abdominal symptoms though. You should get checked for celiac disease which can cause bloating as the only symptom. Only a blood test is needed. ...Read more
