How often should I eat?

On all of the OPTAVIA Plans, you’ll practice the healthy habit of eating six small meals per day — one every two to three hours. Start each day with a schedule, allotting specific times for eating your Fuelings and Lean & Green meal(s). 

Try to have your first meal within an hour of waking, then eat another meal every two to three hours after that for optimal blood sugar and hunger control. If you know your schedule will shift a little (perhaps on weekends), make sure to shift your fueling times accordingly.

We recommend that you eat your OPTAVIA Fuelings and Lean & Green meal(s) within a 24-hour period, regardless of what time your day starts.
