3 meals/day superior to 6 meals/day?

Who has research showing 3 meals/day is superior to 6 meals/day? Please help!

About a minute later this rail thin 60+ year old woman walks in, mouth blazing, and proceeds to talk to the guy at the front desk for 10 minutes without every stoping to breathe - pretty dang impressive.

Rotisserie Functional Core and Abs Workout

This isn't a workout for making pretty 6-pack abs. The purpose of this workout is to workout the core muscles that can provide lower back stability to prevent injury in every day life as well as improve your sports performance.

There are two aspects to the core and they are equally important: strength and endurance. You need muscular endurance because...
