Eating two large meals a day, rather than several smaller ones, may be the key to losing weight for Type 2 Diabetics.

That's according to researchers in the Czech Republic.

They studied two groups of diabetic adults. 

One group ate two large meals a day.

The other ate six small meals.

Both consumed the same amount of calories. 

The researchers found those who ate two meals lost three pounds more than the multiple-meal group.

They also lost more inches from their waistline.
