Is it possible to lose weight by eating whenever you hear your stomach rumbling, but the eating part is done in moderation? Because sometimes when I'm on this board, I forget to eat for a while.
You might be on this board too much!
I would say not wait until your stomach makes noises. Keep the metabolism up by eating little often.
thou must eat every 30 minutes.
every 30 minutes is a little excessive. But every two hours will do the trick. Starving yourself willl only be counter-productive.
eating every 2-4 hours is the ideal. You're body will get accustomed to this schedule after a while, and you're stomach will only rumble when you need to eat;D
Bump on what the big guy said... I eat about every 3-4 hrs. It was weird at first, but the body gets used to it after around a week or so.Originally Posted by BigVrunga

ooh good point. Hey, you know how a person's body adapts to workouts if you do it all the time... can the same said about eating. where you can lose weight by eating every few hours and then one day you'll stop losing the weight?
Eating every few hours helps keep your metabolism elevated, which result in burning a greater number of calories at rest, in addition to keeping adequate nutrients flowing to your muscles.
Yes, your body will adapt to the caloric defecit and weight loss will slow down or ever stop, and just like training you need to do things to 'shock' your system into burning fat again. This can be using dietary techniques like carb cycling, CKD, or even clean bulking for a week or two. (or a combination off all those over time, ideally)
eating is more important than anything else! izza: Now get yourself on a schedule or your metabolism will just shut down.
I'm really hungry right now..yea dude eat as much as you can...preferably protein cookies..
hmm interesting stuff. i've do some more research!
By eating every 3 hours, I never find myself starving.
