    Week 6 here. I find I'm eating 2 meals a day, breakfast and dinner. I'll >sometimes< have a salad at midnight (night shift worker), but nowadays, I'm often not hungry, or not hungry enough, to eat that salad 3.5 hours after dinner. I do snack in between meals...walnuts, a chunk of dark chocolate, berries, a banana or apple.

      One meal a day. Occasionally two, but usually just one in the evening.

        I prefer eating once a day - typically two meals, dinner/breakfast and dessert. Sometimes I'll nibble on a chocolate bar throughout the day to get the calories in, and because I love chocolate.

        Though recently I've been having an earlier meal at around "lunchtime" to accommodate for my girlfriend, of whom has recently has had to assume a gluten-free diet (else risk hospitalising me when we kiss) so I don't make her feel uncomfortable by having her not eat while she does; she's adopted my food, not my eating habits - she can't eat as much as I can in a sitting, and I don't want her to hurt herself trying to eat like me.
        Dark chocolate and coffee, running through my veins...

          Just 2. One between 11 & 2 and the second between 6 & 8! And then I am done. Works for me quite well.

            Same.

              I usually eat one main meal either a late lunch or early dinner depending on what I'm doing. I may have a glass of kefir or some coconut milk in my tea in the morning but not a real meal.
              This isn't something I force myself to do. It just feels natural. I'm not hungry more often than that. So why eat?

                  Cutting at the moment so twice per day Steak (around 1lb of any meat really per meal) and Eggs x 8 per day. Both meals within a 6 hour window so that I can get an 18 hour fast in too.
                  Fed up of eggs but the meat is good!

                      One big meal with things I feel like eating, no macro restriction as long as it is real nutritious foods.

                        3 on weekdays (approx: 8am, 1.30pm, 6.30pm). 2 on weekends (pprox: 10.30am and 8pm, sometimes with some dark chocolate or coconut flakes at 4pm).

                        I like the fact that if I wake up too late for breakfast on a weekday, I'm OK to hang on til noon, but I just don't have the same spring in my step as when I start the day with a plate of fat and protein.

                            At the moment it's warm and I'm running around all day, so I'll have 3-7 mini-meals of bits of fruit, eggs and potatoes and 1 large meal later in the day.
                            When the weather's more suited to myself and I'm lifting, but not busy all day, then I'll eat 2-3 medium meals or 2 medium meals and 1 large one.
                            It basically changes depending on when I'm hungry, how hungry I am and what I'm doing.

                              LIES. You can't get sick of eggs. Some people can develop an allergy through over-exposure, but you can't get sick of them. I went through a phase of eating 60 a week (anywhere from 6 to 12 a day) to save money. Even after that I'll happily and spontaneously eat 8 eggs in a sitting.
                              How are you having them? If they're hard-boiled day-in-day-out, I'd understand the boredom. But there are many ways of cooking, seasoning and serving eggs to help you mix it up a bit.

                                Usually two, lunch and dinner. Occasionally 1 if lunch is large and not hungry for dinner.
