    The only real benefits to eating frequently is appetite and craving control, and energy stabilization.

    It will help to properly digest the nutrients as they are needed. As opposed to cramming them down all at once and having some stored as fat.

    That, is, it. That and hunger.

    Cackerot - I mean as efficiently as possible without fat storage. If you cram 100g of carbs down per sitting 3x per day, you're going to get a hell of a lot fatter than opposed to eating 50g per sitting 6x.

    No you won't. Any fat you store from that meal will just be metabolized later in the day for energy.

    Just eat as often as you can. Evening out your digestive process and metabolism would be great. If you can eat every hour, do it. Eat in the middle of the night, too.

    What you said works for maintaining a healthy weight. As far as maintaining a consistant and more desirable lean mass : bodyfat ratio, it's very ineffective compared to eating more frequently, and allowing your body to fully reap the benefits of the nutrients, rather than just storing them and using them for other purposes later.

    Muscle catabolizes, inevitably the total lean mass drops. The body would prefer get rid of muscle first. So it keeps dropping... and while losing all of that mass, in the end your total BF% is actually higher than when you started. But a lot of it depends on the person and their activities too. Someone who isn't looking to maintain those 15 lbs of mass from the bulk cycle doesn't mind the sacrifice.

    PS: I know it's hard to lose so much muscle that your BF is higher than before, unless you're crash dieting along with 7x cardio for 40 minutes daily every week. But it can happen.

    At first you must try it,so that you will be able to prove that it doesn't work.The suggestion from a person who has tried it is:less meals=better than more meals.Period.
    You can give me a ton of studies but I won't believe in anything but my personal experience.

    And I'm talking about real diets and not chemical diets like Atkins etc where 1 or 10 meals in a day really don't matter.

    *** Tried it, with larger meals and less frequent feedings times, I always felt bloated, sluggish and sleepy form the spikes I got.

    I now feel much more energetic and my appetite is much better.
    Before I was dreading each meal becausI had to froce feed myself.

    I take some enzymes and I don't experience any bloat.
    I have only one meal and late at night so the sleepy feeling is a +
    My energy levels suffer when I eat carbs all day long.Now it's better.

    You only eat one meal a day? How big are you? What kinda lifts can you post up? This isn't a dig, I'm honestly just curious.

    You are misunderstanding me. I don't eat once a day now. I ate large meals before and I had a negative experience.

    I now revamped my eating plan to 8-9 small meals a day.

    but why not just re-vamp the diet and cut the carbs out a bit?

    it doesn't make much sense to only eat one meal a day, and then supplement so you don't have that crappy sluggish feeling....

    Well.. I am 5'9" 165 lbs with a bf at -estimated-around 9-10%(lower abs are totally visible only when flexing).Now the gym where I go,is closed until 20Aug. but some of my lifts before 1Aug when it closed,were:Incline bench:190lbs--Squat:265lbs--Leg press 400lbs,calf raise(seated):175lbs.
    Nothing special but I focus on higher reps as I found it works better because it causes muscle hypertrophy and my muscles are more pumped as well.

    If you eat only 1 meal a day and its in the evening, would I be mistaken if I thought you lifted weights on an empty stomach? I thought that was a no-no. I also feel much better when eating 6+ meals a day. Why only eat 1 and pay money to supplement with enzymes so ou dont feel like garbage?
