After years of eating IF style I have decided to switch back to the traditional 4-6 meals. Reasons being while gaining it is too much food to be eating in the time given since I like o also have my fair share of veggies. Also, it seems after some reading from past threads and new postings that having such a large amount of food in a small window can mess with BS levels, cortisol, and the look of muscles through out the day as well as smaller amounts of protein through the day is better for building muscle.
My question for those who follow this type of diet is how would you set it up when trying to gain muscle optimally? Many like Stu and BBB prefer to keep most if not all their carbs pre- training while have little to no carbs PWO. After trying this for about a week I like how I feel. If you all train in the evening do your meals grow as you get closer to pre workout followed by a larg carb free PWO meal or do you eat what you want through out the day calorie wise (P+F)? Do some taper calories?
