RULE #1: Always eat at least 5 times a day. Two or three meals a day are NOT enough. It’s permissible to regard two of these meals as “snacks,” provided they contain sufficient calories to get you to your next meal, and are comprised of the appropriate ratio of macronutrients. Your blood sugar and insulin levels will be controlled (and thus your energy level). You will receive protein in small amounts throughout the day to support growth, recovery, and (most importantly) body fat will NOT be stored, but instead mobilized as an energy source by providing your body with a consistent and frequent supply of just the right number of calories. Conversely, when you eat infrequently, your body recognizes a “famine”situation and your entire endocrine system (powerful hormones produced inside your body that control how you grow, recover, and produce energy) is thrown for a loop. Then, too much of the food you consume is stored as body fat in preparation for the “famine” to come.
