I'm going to try this to see how well it works. Over the last couple of months, i have gained back a lot of the weight i lost, and I can't figure it out. While I was vigorously working out I put on 7 lbs, but ate according to the Insanity schedule. After Insanity, i tried to watch what i was eating and each day was increasing my weight. Figured it must be water, but it isn't . my face got plumped out again, and my belly is more poochy. Additionally i feel bloated most of the time.
So i am going to try this:

1500 Calories in Six Meals-a-Day

Can eating several mini-meals instead of three squares a day help you lose weight? It all comes down to the total calories you take in over the day. The more chances you have to eat, the more times you may overeat so portion size is the key.

To eat in a healthy manner, choose a variety of foods from and within different food groups. Make food choices that will limit your intake of saturated and trans fat, cholesterol, added sugars, salt, and alcohol.

MyPyramid.gov can help you determine how many servings you should choose from the different food groups.

The following meal plan is just one example that includes all food groups as well as discretionary calories, which are those calories left over after nutrient needs are met by other food groups.
