Skipping meals usually doesn't help you eat fewer calories.
When you skip a meal, you’re more likely to get hungry and overeat. It's better to spread your eating evenly through the day and eat smaller meals. In the long run, you’ll probably eat fewer calories with three small meals per day than with one or two large ones.
If you have diabetes, it’s especially important to eat regular meals and snacks. Skipping meals and then overeating will make your blood sugar problems worse.
