I have seen people who eat six light meals a day lose on average more than a person who eats three meals a day. I think this is due to tricking your body into thinking that it is getting more fuel to use so it wastes fuel and thus you get more of a weight loss. Having your body burning more fuel than it has or is taking in helps in the long run.

You know, I've actually heard of this sort of thing. You eat several more smaller meals per day rather than 3 squares, and you're supposed to lose weight. I admit I've never tried it though but I do like the fruit idea, and incidentally, I happen to love both apples and pears so that should be easy. I eat pears and peaches in the cups surrounded in the juice and I have 3 of those a day for dessert through the week. I also eat sugar free wheat bread for my sandwiches. Man I like these forums, you can really find all sorts of interesting things to discuss on here. I never thought I'd say something like that *laugh*.
