    timing of meals( quick question)

    how important is it to eat your meals at exactly at the same time every day.
    cos some days wen i sleep late all my meals shift up a bit later. but i still eat every two -three hours between meals.

    That's actually okay as long as you get the same amount of sleep, and can keep the activity the same.

    However, many miss a few meals going back/forth like this between getting up early and getting up late.

    it would be real nice if i could get an answer for this also, i work 2 7am-7pm dayshifts which is fine, cos i can get all my meals in no problems, however on the following day i work nights 7pm-7am 2 days in a row, i tend to getup a little later 10-11am when on nights, but i eat allday and through the night at 3 hrs intervals, is this ok to do? this shift pattern really throws me out, i work 4 on 4 off or "continental shifts" with 18 days off every 7 sets, if you follow me, getting up off night really fuks me up big time, any advice greatfully recieved! planning on starting my own supps shop so regular hours will be great!

    Eat every 3 hours and get 5-6-7 meals and your fine no matter what time you wake up.

    It makes no difference what shift you work, follow the basic guidelines.

    Cardio after waking (empty stomach), eat every 2.5 to 3 hours.....
