At 138 lbs, shouldn't every meal be a cheat meal?
See studies post 2010 on meal frequency and timing for what i am talking about.
when it comes to muscle hypertrophy, meal timing is not important. Otherwise LeanGains style diets would not work. It used to be thought that not eating within set time frames would mean that muscles would be catabolized for nutrients and fuel during fasted periods, however this isnt quite the case. If you are placing continuous and repetitive stress on muscles week after week, the muscles must grow to adapt to the stress (hence why we grow), when insuffiecient stress is placed on muscles consistantly, the body no longer needs the added muscle and it begins to atrophy. The body wont catabolize muscle for fuel (or at least very minimally) if the body thinks it needs it.
consider an astronaut. On earth, the body needs the skeleton to hold up muscles due to the acceleration of gravity and the stress of the weight of muscles on the skeleton. In space where there is no gravity, there is no longer any need for a sturdy skeleton as there is no external stress placed on the body. Therefore the body begins (and rapidly so) deminerizing the skeleton (remving calcium) as we simply have no ned for it. to combat this, astronuats continually place stress on the skeleton to prevent it demineralizing.
Meal timing simply ensures the body is adequatly fuelled for the next bout of exercise and ensures it has enough raw materials to repair and grow. Whether you get that in 30 mins after exercise or 3 hours has little effect over the end result

Im not saying what you do is wrong, if that works for you and your getting your macros in then your doing everything im arguing for. All im saying is that you eat when you want to eat and what works best for you as long as total macro needs are met, you will contiune to grow.
