I have a question regarding gaps in eating…
Typical scenario for me is:
Sunday - go training ~4pm, with protein shakes before/after, followed by a normal meal (protein, carbs, veggies) at 6pm. Before bed maybe a pot of 0% fat cottage cheese.
Monday - shake after getting up, followed by eggs, muesli, fruit for breakfast at 8am.
Because of my job travels and customer meetings, no chance to eat again before 3pm - a 6-7 hour gap.
With long gaps like this, what happens with ‘muscle building’?
Does the body just take a breather, and resume growth when it next gets some food?
Or, does it stop growth dead in its tracks till next time…? Does it make sense to pile in the protein after such a long gap?
