Asalaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh,
Alhamdulillah, I've been recently trying to control and balance my diet (not that I eat to much in the first place!). I've reduced my consumption of sugar and fried foods. So I was wondering if there are any established number of meals the Prophet (saw) would eat a day. I've always assumed that three meals a day is something which began from 'The West'. Personally speaking, I find it difficult to eat three meals a day, however my mother worries that I don't eat enough. I've realised that eating three meals makes me feel heavy and sluggish, which when I am empty I feel very light and have a spring in my step.
So yes, anything from the Sunnah with regards to meal times would be greatly appreciated.
