    To get cut - eat less. To gain muscle, eat more. The number of meals doesn't make enough of a difference to be meaningful in most trainees.

    the whole eat smaller meals throughout the day vs. large meals is bro science. your metabolism won't make a lick of difference !! this is MYTH has been disproven but people still parrot it

    look what Mike Rashid does. he eats 1 meal a day! thats all. EAT LESS and LESS OFTEN to cut

    if you want to bulk and gain mass then eat more, more often. the average american eats 3 large meals a day + snacks all day. and they are FAT. so no eating a lot during the day doesn't help you lose weight lol

    when you are constantly eating you are spiking insulin, that causes your body to store food. so instead this is what i do to stay lean: i workout, and then don't eat for hours after. ride the wave, during this time your body will not STORE FAT. this is good.

    Re: three big meals vs 6-7 small meals a day

    Small meals throughout the day are the best because they lead to the most stable blood sugar levels and a constant flow of amino acids in your blood. With stable blood sugar levels, your body is less likely to store body fat. A constant flow of amino acids favour a muscle building environment.

    That being said - remember big picture. It takes about 8 hours to fully digest a meal. Worrying about 3 meals vs 4 vs 5 vs 6 is kind of nit picking.

    The MOST important thing is your calorie and macronutrient intake at the end of the day. Break down your calorie and macronutrient total into however many meals best fits your schedule.

    Baring in mind Steve's reply above...

    Lets assume, just for a moment, that there WAS some difference. How much of a difference is the question. Is it 100kcals a day? 200kcals? That's insignificant.

    Now I've said, using myself as an example, that over the 38 years I've lifted it might add up to something. But it means NOTHING to most trainees and gym users. I've seen the stats and I know how long most stay in the game. By way of example most gym users used to last no more than 12-16 weeks.

    If that number is accurate then a 100 calories a day for a few weeks... and then they stop lifting... means nothing.

    I think whatever is more convenient for you. If you can easily eat 6-7 meals and enjoy smaller portions then go for it. If you prefer larger meals less frequently then do that. In the end it really only comes down to total calories in vs calories out.

    convenience for me makes it a bit difficult to get in a full meal in an appropriate time to get to the gym not so full with som nutrients from digestion ; and may be difficult to get in a regular meal right after the gym. so something is to be said for pre-intra-post snacks like whey. so that automatically adds 2 more small meals to total.
