7. Eating smaller portions boosts up your metabolism
Stop eating and start starving and your metabolism will decrease and slow down. The fact that eating smaller portions boosts up your metabolism is only partly true. The problem is that mindless eating and snacking 24/7 is stupid – eat 3 times per day and refrain from grazing every hour. The amount of calories you consume with snacks (even the healthy ones) increases and you gain pounds rather than lose them.
