what is the current thinking on the eating 8x a day thing?

currently i am eating 4x per day + a 50g prot 50g glucose shake after training

will this honestly cause problems or is this 8x a day thing just a way of stopping bingeing?

on a bulk at the mo so just eating everything

breakfast today was 2 boiled eggs, 2 slices toast, tin tuna in oil and tin of pinapple, and bowl of porridge........mmmmmmmmmmmmm

comments from the informed please

currently 190lbs 15% ish and going for 200lbs @ 10%..eventually

meal frequency isn't a huge deal with me. As long as I get in my cals for the day, I'm fine.

i prefer 8 meals, but you won't be hinndered in your progress much if at all.

It is important to eat a meal when you get up, and meals earlier in the day rather than later. This is because when you rise in the morning your metabolism is 'kick started' and needs sufficient nutrients to function optimally. Studies have shown that eating a good first meal can give you 30% more energy during the day over eating your first meal later in the day.

Yeah, within reason it should be fine.

I'm not a fan of the "Warrior" diets and others that have you eating once per day, but four or five meals a day is fine.
