Many of us (myself included) eat upwards of 8 meals a day. Currently I eat at…
7:15 - breakfast
9:45 - small snack, like a protein bar or 1/2 an MRP
12:40 - lunch = sandwich
2:30 - pre-WO snack (1/2 an mrp or so)
5:00 - oatmeal and whey
7:30 - dinner, meat and veggies
9:30 - cottage cheese and pb
I always go by the golden 3 hour rule… meaning if I haven’t eaten SOMETHING (even if it’s only about 100-150cals) then I’m going into catabolism.
So, how long does it ACTUALLY take? Does it depend on how large a meal you have eaten prior? Does it depend on what kind of activities you’re partaking in? (I’m sitting around in school all day, so I’m lucky I suppose)
How often do YOU try to get your meals in? And… what would you suggest someone like me, a student, try to do?
