That was a very informative article. I'm still new to all this nutrition stuff, so I was left a little confused. Would anyone mind giving an example of there 5-6 meals they eat in a day and why each meal is eaten (i.e. for carbs, fats, etc)

thanks and great article

When it comes to nutrient timing, I typically structure everything around two factors:

1. When someone's training time is.
2. Whether or not it's a training day or a non-training day.

If you can give me some idea as to what time of the day you typically train, I can give a brief example of how I would set something up.

Premise being: you want to get the bulk of your kcals (particularily carbs) at times when your body will use them (usually breakfast and/or post-training). People often neglect the importance of hormonal factors when it comes to addiing/losing muscle or adding/losing fat. How you eat and how you structure your meals will play a HUGE role as to how your body will respond.
