Yeah good plan, pretty much the same as mien

I think only one or two meal use in a day. This is best for every body. If we use more meals in a day then we face problems.

well thats 1200-1300 calories per meal, and shooting for near 100g protein per meal right? so for a meal example

1 oz pecans mixed into the potato 20g fat, 4g carb, 3g protein 193 calories
1 cup broccoli 10g carbs, 6g protein 52 calories
so you've got 119g protein, 92g carbs (less the fiber, so more like 75-80), and 52g fats with a total of 1294 calories.

so long as you get the calories + protein from solid foods, it doesn't matter from 2 meals to however many.
More meals can be helpful mentally, in that when bulking some people have a hard time trying to take in 1500-2000 calories in each of 2 meals so breaking it up is simpler mentally. And when cutting, its sometimes mentally helpful to have the meals be frequent so you are always just a little hungry, never totally feeling empty and starving hungry. But as far as muscle growth/fat loss goes, eating the # of meals that fits your lifestyle and is convenient for you is all that matters.

Oh right ok so i was thinking can you give me 2 meals on a lean gain im trying to lean put abit losing bodyfat is hard lol im starting 10 min cardio and 10 min cardio after workout aswell

Well, you've got one up above there. Then for another you could do 2 chicken breasts, a cup of rice, a banana and some source of healthy fats.

Ok so Wgen you think its best to take them meals?? What bowt shakes??
05-11-2011 10:26 AM
2-3 hours before your workout if it makes sense, and then 6 or 7 hours later more or less. Or break it into 3 meals. Shakes just aren't important if you get enough solid whole food in, but they don't particularly hurt.

1. I certainly feel it is tough trying to convert back to 4+ meals a day after eating only 2 meals. After experiencing the psychological pleasure from two large meals, it is tough, I guess psychologically to adjust back to multiple small meals, imo.
2. For those who choose 2 meals, do you or continue with only 2 meals during a cut?

Not only do you have a few threads about this, your posting about it in others threads? Come on man.

some people respond better to eating more smaller meals due to food cravings, but once you get used to having 2-3 large meals a day + whey its not that bad. the cravings go away after about 5-7 days (for me at least).
