But 2-3 hours.


Most often people go with about 2-3 hours.

If ive just had a shake or MRP im usually ready to eat again closer to the 2 hour mark, but if ive had a big meal of solid food, then it usually hits closer to 3 hours.



Usually between 2 to 4 hours. 2 hours being the least and 4 hours being the most you go between meals. I eat every 3 hours


The easy answer is:(assuming you're awake 18h/day). 18h/6 meals = eat every 3h.

Berardi suggests 2-3 hours between meals.


Depending on time constraints, 1.5-2.5 hours.


ok guys thanks
