How many times should I eat per day?

Depends. Ideally we should eat when we're hungry, but social norms have centered around 3 meals (or 4 in some countries) within less than a 12-hour period. Many people benefit from eating 4-6 "mini meals" a day to prevent low blood sugar or help control sugar or because they've had surgical procedures to limit size of stomach or for tumors. If you have medical condition, ask your doc about this.
