Some of the top heart doctors are weighing in on when is the best time to eat and if fasting can help improve your health.

Like many, the doctors say don't skip breakfast. It's good for blood sugar control and can help with your weight.

Some experts say fasting periodically could help with short-term weight loss, but aren't sure the results will last.

As for what's better, three large meals or smaller, more frequent eating? The doctors say it doesn't matter as long as the amount of calories is the same.

Overall, they stress more mindful eating, meaning making smart choices, paying attention to and appreciating your food.

And only eating when you're hungry, as opposed to when you're stressed or bored.
