    Re: Meal Freaquency

    I firmly believe in frequently eating meals, yes

    Me personally, I tried the IF plan, tried keto, tried IF *AND* keto...all of them with mixed results but one common theme: they left me feeling weak and hungry.

    Presently, I've placed my dietary well-being into Spongey's capable hands and I'm happy with my results.

    All depends on goals.. But yes eating 6times a day is better in any goal you have. It's good to keep the metabolism running on high.

    I have not fasted and don't think I would ever try it... Imo, its Better to eat and let the metabolism do the work..

    I eat pretty much every 2 1/2 to 3 hours depending on whats going on that day. Tried the fasting thing and doesn't work for me.

    If you're fat missing meals won't hurt, but if you're skinny like me.......you have to eat and never miss a meal.

    Re: Meal Freaquency

    I'm a big fan of meal frequency but am trying something new with my cut.

    5 eggs with and olive oil in the morning

    1 cup plain greek yogurt and 1 cup blueberries 3 hours later

    1 cup plain greek yogurt and 1 cup blueberries 3 hours later

    12 oz Meat, 2 cups rice, 4 oz sweet potato, huge salad, olive oil 3 hours later

    4 oz Meat before bed

    I still get 3000-3500 calories per day, just the bulk are from one meal.

    So far so good, I do not feel hungry during the day. My workouts are still strong and the fat is melting off...

    Here's the thing, I am not afraid to lose LBM at this point. I will never compete and I Just can't justify carrying around this much weight no matter what my bodyfat % is. Gotta look at longevity!

    I would not neccesarily reccomend this to one of my clients, but I am testing it out for clients that may want to try it in the future.

    I eat all day long. Pretty much every hour. Carbs and protein pre and post workout.
    Then light snacks of yogurt and fruits every hour or so.
    Lunch is my big meal - tuna, low sodium cottage cheese, carrots with fat free ranch dip, an apple and a greek yogurt.
    Then I snack the remainder of the day- at least once an hour with mostly proteins and fats but some fruit (cottage cheese, yogurt, nuts, peanut butter, chicken breasts with mustard, pineapple, blueberries, strawberries, etc.).
    Before bed I eat sugar free Polaner high fiber all fruit with some low sodium cottage cheese.

    That's not really very detailed and I do vary it slightly but that's about it for the Vettester on the average day.

    Respect,

    Re: Meal Freaquency

    I would say that IF works well for some people if you're trying to lose fat, don't want to gain any muscle, and aren't afraid to lose a little muscle. Also, you'll be starving for the first few weeks if you're used to eating frequently.

    I'd suggest what everyone else is, eat 6+ times a day, and vary the calories based on your goals. If you want to lean out, eat lower calories and try to get all your carbs earlier in the day, and stop eating carbs about maybe 3 pm, stick with protein/fat meals after that.

    If you want to gain, well for me personally, I just have been eating 6-7 meals a day, at least 1 of them is a dirty meal, pizza, a cheese steak, pulled pork sandwich, something like that. It's been working very well. I eat carbs all day and night too, I just ate half a pizza for my second to last meal, and spaghetti and meatballs will be my last meal before bed. However, I'm naturally skinny with a high metabolism and a physically demanding job, and 28 years old, so maybe I can get away with more than the average person.

    Really, you just have to experiment and find what works for you, or hire a professional to plan a diet for you.

    Holy! I was using the forum at bodybuilding(dot)com and it seems everyone there is opposed to meal frequency saying that it doesn't matter because of thermic affect of food and all this crap (tried to post a link but i cant without 20 posts...) my whole life i have always believed in meal frequency, i tried the fasting diet for a cut once and just felt weak, and hungry, its amazing how opinions change from forum to forum, but bb.com is alot more younger guys that probably dont know what works for them because they haven't bin in the game long enough

    You shouldn't fast, your body will learn it has to keep reserves on hand. Eating again after a meal is digested is the way to go.

    I also eat every 2-3 hours. Slow protien before bed. Waking up hungry is good, to me that means my body did not go in to fat storage mode and my met is still running.

    Re: Meal Freaquency

    I am going to challange you blokes, as someone before challanged me.

    I was a firm believer in eating every couple of hours or so. Then someone asked me why I believed this. My response was that it helped increase metabolism and helped burn fat. His response was..... really? How did you learn about that? So I stopped and thought. Come to find out, I haven't really seen any studies on the subject, and just took it on faith as a word of mouth type thing from others that looked good and were eating 6x a day. I then proceeded to try to look it up. The assumption is that under both scenerios, the same amount of food is eaten overall during the day. What I found out was that it is a myth that eating smaller, more frequent meals helps speed up metabolism.

    The gauntlet has been thrown down.

    Can you show any clinical data with reference cites that show eating smaller, more frequent meals helps speed up metabolism?

    I don't think it's important. I usually eat a pound of cottage cheese for breakfast with some nuts and dried fruit thrown in. My lunch and dinner are light in starches and include a rich source of complete protein and some veggies.
