    meal timing and frequency while on gear

    hey guys,

    ive heard people saying its crucial to eat every 3 hours like 6 meals a day

    while some others saying meal timing and frequency is just a myth and eating 1 meal 2 meals 3 meals or 50 meals a day dont matter. what matters is the total intake of the macro.

    whats ur opinions?

    Think about it logically.

    If you eat 3500 calories in a single meal do you think your body will be able to utilize all of it at once ?

    If you eat twice in the morning do you think you will be able to have a good training session 6 hours later ?

    Meal timing and frequency matters - lots of research indicates so. We also have several diet/nutrition studies to further answer questions.

    I agree w Windex. There is a lot of studies and information saying how eating multiple meals throughout the day is the way to go. But at the same time, there are plenty of really big dudes that do intermittent fasting
    I tend to go with the known science so I'm not questioning if I am missing out on the full benefits

    I seems to matter from a sanity perspective (while trying to lose fat) and in cases where someone has to eat 10-15k calories per day (just a lot of food). That it actually matters in terms of weight loss or gain I have not found any evidence for.

    There is a great Intermittent fasting book by John Berardi where he tries a lot of different variations. There is some take away from that to what I said above even though you are not using IF right now. It's a long read but well worth it.
