Meals
People in Sports often split their food intake for the day into 5 to 7 meals of roughly equal nutritional content and attempt to eat at regular intervals ( every 2 to 3 hours). This method can serve two purposes: to limit overeating in the cutting phase, and to physically allow for the consumption of large volumes of food during the bulking phase. Contrary to popular belief, eating more frequently does not increase basal metabolic rate when compared to the traditional 3 meals a day. While food does have a metabolic cost to digest, absorb, and store, called the thermic effect of food, it depends on the quantity and type of food, not how the food is spread across the meals of the day. Well-controlled studies using whole-body calorimetry and doubly labeled water have demonstrated that there is no metabolic advantage to eating more frequently.
