I don't understand how my posts got taken so far out of context. I never argued against eating smaller frequent meals. I agree IF diets are probably not the most effective way to add muscle mass, and that a 245lb guy with lots of lean mass would probably not benefit from it. I argued 1 point and 1 only, that a person can only absorb 600 calories in a single meal. Thats it. Mountainman33 argued this with me, while ate the same time saying he conditioned himself to eat 900 at a time. Right there you show your original comment was wrong. I personally think the number is different for most people. And I also believe the number to be much higher. I myself have made gains on eating 2 1000+ calories a day with a few snacks thown in. And I personally doubt I have "ridiculous genetics".
As far as the comment from Texasguy about no one worth his salt would use a IF diet, I think your confusing the average person with a professional bodybuilder, or with someone who as aspirations to acheive that sort of body type. Most people don't. As I said above, I agree a large person with lots of muscle mass would not do well on a IF diet, but a lot of people don't have or want that kind of physique.
I try and stay out of pissing matches, so I will probably not post again in this thread, unless someone can show me definitive proof my original comment was wrong.
