  • How Many Meals?

    How many meals do you guys typically eat in a day? I plan for 2 with 2 snacks.

    Generally 0-4. No snacks.

        1-3 in an 8 hour window.

          Sometimes three. Sometimes two with a snack. Sometimes just one. Today is going to be a three-meal day because yesterday was a 1.5 meal plus 1 snack day and I'm hungry. The half meal yesterday was the meat out of a sandwich and after the day I had, I really needed a lot more food than that.

            2-3, very few snacks, but if I'm hungry I'll grab something small to hold me over.
            My typical day Mon thru Fri:
            Breakfast-3 hard boiled eggs, one cup of coffee
            lunch-a monster salad, water
            dinner-16 or more oz meat, large serving of cooked vegetables (usually squash) water
            I try to have fish at least once a week, and chicken at least once a week, other than that its pretty much always beef.
            I drink hot tea all day long at work (don't know if that's good or bad)
            Sat & sun:
            brunch-bacon and veggy omelet 3-4 eggs. dinner stays the same. On the weekends sometimes I eat lunch, sometimes I skip. During the week I try to IF at least one day 1 or 2 meals.

              There are no snack but only meals during out the day time.For me ranges from 5-7 per day. "We are not what we eat but what we assimulate" Optimizing the Gi tract is crucial to longevity and health, but highly over looked by traditoinal medicine.

                I have either 2 or 3. Normally, I'm okay with 2, as long as the second meal of the day is huge and has a lot of meat in it. Today, I'll have 3 - I had a very light second meal yesterday and probably didn't get enough calories. Woke up absolutely ravenous this morning.

                  I would end up on the floor going into hypoglycemic shoock if I ate like that. The more muscle mass you have more you need to eat to sustaindaily function.

                    Some days I binge (on primal foods). Other days I force myself to eat just because 'it's time'. On other days I do an I.F. (rare).
                    Some days I'm more traditional eating breakfast, lunch and dinner with a 4 o'clock snack. Some days I cheat by sharing some local ice cream with my husband (ice cream is full fat from pastured cows and made with maple syrup). Some days I am a carnivore, a bloody one at that and other days I'm a vegetarian eating mostly salads with home-made mayo (with eggs and sour cream).

                      Usually two or three (breakfast and dinner are most common for me lately). I try to minimize snacking as much as possible, though I'll sometimes have some cheese and wine with my wife in the evening. "Eat like a predator, not like prey" seems to work fairly well for me.

                          2-3 depending on the days...occasional snacks, but only if I haven't eaten enough at a given meal.

                              When i transitioned a few years ago I ate about 5~6 meals a day and some snacks. At the moment i eat between 1 and 4 meals a day, depending on what my body seems to need. And almost no snacks.
