  3. don't worry about all the IF leangains guys it may work for them but its not optimal for promoting hypertrophy and it has nothing to do with thermal effect and everything to do with nutrient absorption don't really need a study to show that the digestive system handles smaller meals spaced apart better than it does one giant meal.

    not knocking IF for anyone that uses it, its a decent feeding protocol that fits lots of peoples schedules but to say its the best way to do things and then act like anyone who disagrees doesn't know what they're talking about is kind of silly imo

    I don't do IF myself....i'm just saying it's not necessary to eat 6 times a day to gain muscle or lose fat and that it will make no difference to body composition when you get your macros in for the day....in 6 meals, 3 meals, 15 meals or wether you get most of your carbs in the morning or at 12 at night once you hit cals and macro goals. I'm not saying he's wrong or his way of doing it won't work but it's not neccesary or even optimal. As for the body finding it easier to download smaller more frequant meals i've had no problems and at the end of the day it still has to digest the same amount just in less frequant bigger meals.

  5. I meant to say digest instead of download....haha

    This.

    Thank you for typing this out lol im on my phone so its a hassle. I was going to reply earlier, but; again its a hassle to do it from my phone. There not grasping the simplicity to the situation, get your kcalories in and your fine. Eat a surplus gain weight, deficit and you loose weight (again, albiet clean though) 1,2,6 or twelve meals DOESNT matter.

  8. 15 meals...

    Myself I eat small meals through out the day @ around 200-400 calories or so.
    Usually my carbs & protein are right about the same amount. Fats I strive to stay under a certain # for the day. I do this because for me personally it's keeps me satisfied that way. I seem to find that a few big meals I'm still hungry which can cause me to over eat.

    At the end of the day I don't think there's a right or wrong answer I think it's about figuring out what works best for you.
    There's millions of theories on how to tailor a diet, also same can be said for weight training.

    Bottom line do what you enjoy, easier to stay consistent that way & reach your overall goals.

    This is true. But it just annoys me when people are so dogmatic "i eat 6 meals a day to keep my metabolism running and your body can only digest so much protein in 1 sitting and remember no carbs after 9 etc" and then make out is the only way to do it

    No, it isn't. This information happens to come from very recent research. I would love for you to post studies that conclude that meal frequency is an important determinant in muscular hypertrophy or strength; these studies must also have controls that eat the same quantity of food in less meals. I.e. the studied group has 6-7 meals while the control has 3 meals and all calories of both groups and food composition is equal.

    I should add that I don't disagree with your methods, and as TonyCFH stated above, it just doesn't affect body composition. However in the times when you need like 4000 calories to get through the day it would be advisable to space them out to avoid discomfort, unless of course you can handle 2000 calories in a meal like Breezy can. In any case if it works for you to have 6 meals, then by all means. People are not arguing against this working for someone, they are only arguing that it is not physiologically more effective to space them out over 6 meals instead of <3

    So you are saying you're stronger when you're hungry? What ever you said made no sense

    Your english is very poor the way you try to explain things. So you're saying when you have your meal at 1 you won't be hungry 4 hours later and will be stronger in the gym?

    Your head is poor.I am saying that if you eat at 1 and you go gym after 4 hours you will be hungry and dont have much power to do a good training.

    And what the **** does that have to do with anything? First of all i've had awesome workouts after eating more than 5 hours prior. Secondly, who are you to say if i'll be hungry 4 hours later or if somebody else will be? If that is such a problem where you will be hungry then why not eat at 2 or 3 instead of 1 o'clock. I'm beginning to think you are mentally challenged.
