    Damn you have that much free time on your hands to eat 6-8 meals everyday?

    If you ate 7meals every 2.5 hours that's 17.5 hours a day.

    Around that, 1st meal is usually between 7:30 and 8am and last one is around 11pm. And when I say meals, I mean everything from solid meals to shakes. 4 solid food, 3 shakes on WO days.

    I do every 2-3 hours. Carbs, fats, protein, every meal. Usually around 40-60 carbs, 10-15 grams of fat, and 40-50 grams of protein. I want to try Layne Norton's approach, having a meal, then having BCAA's between meals, waiting 4-5 hours between meals that way. Anyone else familiar with his approach?

    5-6 meals roughly three hours apart.

    If it's working for you keep doing it.

    ummmm . . . .

    How about 15 hrs --
    2 meals every 2.5 hrs = 2.5 hrs
    3 meals every 2.5 hrs = 5 hrs
    4 meals every 2.5 hrs = 7.5 hrs . . . and so on

    If you keep using math like that, when you go to finish your fence and you put in 7 posts and buy boards for 7 panels you're going to end up with left over wood . . . jk

    I think 4 hours in between meals is essential.
