    On topic, 300g of carbs isn't all that much in a sitting. I have probably done 2-2.5x that in a sitting. I mean not something I will do everyday, but on a refeed or something.
    Good lord man! Makes sense tho you are a big ****er

    No... I am just saying how many G of carbs a typical refeed was for me. Has nothing to do with your 300g/3000 calorie debacle..lol

    A lot. I was also really lean. That said it was MUCH more than I needed, but I enjoyed it, and it was a huge mental break. That can be very important when dieting.

    I would gain almost 20lbs from the time I woke up until I went to bed, and hold onto about 10-12 the next couple days.

    Yeah 3 meals & 2-3 snacks does the trick.
    A Greek yogurt and 2 slices of cheese packs 24g of protein, 20g of carbs, 5-7g of fat & 260 calories.

    I do that with milk sometimes...
    I have bigger meals though.
    What I do is try not to go over 50-60g of fat a day...
    I had a peanut butter and banana sandwich on whole for breakfast with milk...
    So gotta watch the fats, don't want to over do it.

    Comes down to activity.. 6 small meals would be better for an thlete and/or athletic person, 3 meals, or 6 meals is fine for a bodybuilder, and 1 meal in my opinion is practically IF (intermittent fasting) and is not something that should be done long term I reckon, just every know and again, like if you were doing IF or the Warrior diet to get super lean.. would not F with it over the long haul... but then again depends on lifestyle/activity etc.. I know one guy who works as a blue collar all day and then comes home to one large meal and he says he prefers it following the Warrior diet, but all "diet trends" seem to have a catch imo..

I was talking to a friend of mine who is all into nutrition and they were shocked I would even say such a thing, they were like no, it's science you should be eating ideally 6 times a day. By the way I generally do but just out of habit.

    Could someone point me in the right direction of where this new line of thought that says 1,2, or 3 is just as good as 6 is discussed or science behind it?

    Thanks!

    Why would it matter? Calories are calories, no matter how many meals it takes to get them.

    And that's why you eat whichever way is easiest for your schedule.

    But saying IF is only good for cutting weight is ignorant.

    Its perfectly fine to do IF for the long term. In fact, many of the guys on here do just that.

    I've been looking around for this and all I tend to find is people preaching 5-7 or idealy 6 meals a day? can you point me into the direction of some of the numerous studies that have proven this wrong?

    I thrive on regular feelings so IF is not for me personally. It's not a hassle for me either, but understand lifestyle.

    I have my personal thoughts if you're talking 1 meal a day (I understand that's not truly what some of these do) and you're taking in a bunch of calories the body can only use so much at once. Though it's probably a decent number.

    People are different though so have to use what works best for you. I can't go long without eating and not make bad choices diet wise lol

    I'm like Goku from DBZ. I literally cannot function without food. I start to feel sick, get headaches, and feel weak as fuark.

    But that's just me.

    Intermittent fasting/ Lean Gains. Google it

    What it boils down to, is your total kcaloric intake for the day, hell; it COULD stretch as far as a weekly kcaloric intake. You eat a surplus of calories to grow, eat in a deficite (again albiet clean eating) to lose weight. Pretty simple.

    CBL has crushed the theory of "carbs through the day and taper off before bed".. but you have to understand insulin response and GLUT4, timing ect.

    Again, eat to what suits your day. Eating every 2-3hrs isnt a rule of thumb anymore.

    Sorry but what is CBL?
    Having great potential just means you haven't done anything yet.
