Where Do You Find The Time. If you sleep 8 hrs and you work out with weights and do cardio, "2 hours of time there", thats 10 hours. That leaves 14 hours.

1) They say eat (for bulking) 5000 calories split 5-6 small meals every 3 hrs. 5x3=15 hrs, 6x3=18hrs.

2) Small meals 5000/5 meals is 1000 calories.

so tell me, what do you eat to consume 1000 calories a meal and where do you get more then 24 hrs in a day to do it. do you eat 1000 cal's before you go to bed

With 14 hours left, if you eat every 2 hours, that's 7 meals. A pound of beef and a pound of sweet potato with butter on it is pretty close to 1000 calories if not over.

Try 6-7 thousand calories a day. That's where it gets tougher. The best thing to do is to eat every 2 hours. And yes, I do knock down over a thousand calories before I go to bed. I also get up after sleeping about 5 hours and knock down 800 calories.

Did you add in time at work? That's another 8-9 hours there. I don't think you have the time or the chance to have more then one meal at work eithier.

Sleep+Work+Gym=18 hours out of which you get one full meal on average.

That means you are left with 6 free hours.

Just to point out, you're actually eating your first meal at time 0, so with a 3-hour meal spacing you can eat 6 meals in 15 hours, 7 in 18 hours.

Also, if you're going to be eating 5000+ calories/day, you'd probably be better off shortening that gap between meals or you're going to be eating some pretty large meals.

Your stomach will get used to eating more calories, both in terms of hunger and digestion, but it takes some time. It's also best to increase them slowly, not all at once. Of course, if you go from eating 3K calories to 5K then your stomach will have a tough time handling all the extra food. However, if you add 100-200 calories/week you probably won't even notice the extra food.

I tend to eat very slowly (over around 40 minutes), it makes it much easier to manage.

Depends where you work. In my job a couple of months ago I was able to consume 3 full meals, as the company had a mini-cooker and microwave. I was not popular with the staff (the smell of the fish especially), but I got the calories in.

i tend to eat my meals faster, otherwise i can fill up too fast. eating them too fast causes indegestion mind but i rarely have that problem.

This could be debated in that the slower you eat your food, the more time there is for satiety effects to kick in. If you just slam the food down, your body won't know what hit it :D.

In any event, I don't think this is particularly useful for the original poster as he is already concerned with how little time there is to eat.

most of the body builders find time cause they have nothing else to do. Thats their job, they eat and body build. Simple as that. No one is saying you have to eat 5-6 meals a day or go to the gym for 2 hours or sleep for 8. They are suggestions.

the meal consumption is to try to burn calories while intaking them, therefore canselling out some of the consumed foods.

max-ot program says that 45 min workout max + a 16 min cardio, team-universe members use this.

no one is forcing you to do anything, stop bickering

there.. 7 meals- every 2.5 hours- should be pretty easy, and thats without a pre bed shake (a good way to get more cals and long lasting protein for sleep)

Breakfast 6:10 AM egg whites, grain, milk
Brunch? 9:20 AM Nuts
Lunch 11:30 AM Bread and or fruit
Pre Workout 1:30PM Yogurt, flaxseeds, and or pumpkin/sunflower seeds/nuts/fruit/vegetable
Post Workout 5:00 Fruit/vegetable/dry curd
Dinner 8:00 Vegetable, legume, meat, milk, possible fruit

I find it a lot more fun eating 6 meals a day vs. 3-4 as your always 2-3 hours away from eating, and don't have to worry about being filled til next meal.
