    Meal frequency (research says 1 meal or 7 doesnt matter....)

    ALright has anyone played around with meal frequency for a long period of time...

    they say 1 meal or 7 meals doesn't matter on body composition is calories in calories out do you agree ?

    I found eating one meal a day I gained body fat and lost muscle ,

    I find fasting which I enjoy I cannot grow

    I was in the best shape of my life eating every 3 hours..


    if one meal a day can truly work how come pros don't do it. I love fasting but lost my body playing around with less meals and etc... what have you experienced

    Ultimately yes it's calories in / out.
    I've no clue how anyone can eat all the calories they'd need in one sitting. Or why they'd want to try.
    Pro's wouldn't consider it. Bodies function best in an anti-catabolic state. They've no desire to breakd own hard earned muscle in a catabolic state.
    If you enjoy fasting seek mental help! (just kidding, but damn, really?)
    If you were in the best shape of your life eating E3H then why on earth change it?
    MuscleScience and KINGKONG like this.

    I totally agree with exactly what you said when I was eating every 3 hours for 500 calories 5 times a day I was cut like a beast when those Mills move to longer intervals and three times a day I gained a bit of fat no I ain't fucking hell can I eat one meal a day I'd walk around bloated be tired within 20 minutes

    The research says caloric restriction has benefit also. The problem is its a fad diet if you can't follow it successfully. Fasting also has similar benefits to caloric restriction. The benefits of both include better brain function and aging less. The problem is both of these methods are hard to follow. With caloric restriction the mice live longer but according to a researcher the mice are more irritable and bite more. You won't see this in any text. You may live longer but your quality of life is effected. Also there is older research which demonstrate eating breakfast is ideal. I would think eating one meal a day would be very hard or difficult to follow, I know I couldn't do it. And as the others have said there may be problems with it like losing muscle tissue. I would say do what is successful eating which for most health conscious people is eat 3-6 times a day or more if your trying to gain weight.
