    How important is eating on time? Like scheduling breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks?

    Is there any biological or health-related evidence which suggests that one should stick to a dieting schedule?

    Thanks guys

    You're a fake account and I hate this stupid cat picture.

    And no, it's not important to eat at specified times. People in Spain have dinner at 1AM and are thinner than Americans by a long shot.

    Eat when you're hungry, and at the time that works best with your body (discomfort, excess gas, and energy levels will let you know when is ideal). Unless you're some Olympic quality athlete who literally needs the competitive edge of .1 seconds. But you aren't. And I don't think anyone on RJ is a professional athlete--though I could be mistaken.

    Calories in, calories out. Stop over-analyzing a very simple concept.

    You're fake because this isn't a 1996 AOL chatroom, and I can smell fake/troll-bait profiles a mile away.

    My trainer has discussed nutrition with me and yes there are biological reasons you want to stick to a schedule or your body will suffer. He's getting me on the right track and I have to admit it's working. Your body needs this for proper recovery after workouts.

    If you want to look like the posters above telling you that a meal schedule is not important, by all means follow their advice.

    When it comes to bodybuilding, meal schedule is what separates the men from the boys. The most difficult thing about becoming muscular is not going to the gym, but the meal schedule and all the social, logistic and budget implications in your lifestyle.

    OP, I realize from your other posts that you wouldn't have the resources to pull off a good diet even if you wanted to have one. Don't worry about it.

    Yes, time of eating does have consequences in connection with our biological diurnal rhythms as well as exposure to sunlight which influences these rhythms. There was just some studies in the news about this in the last couple weeks' time even. Exactly what occurs and the magnitude of the effect may vary with individuals, but there definitely is information out there with details on this matter.

    Eating on schedule can be important to certain people, such as diabetics. I was diagnosed as borderline hypoglycemic (low blood sugar), and learned to eat something every few hours, to keep my blood sugar at a stable level. Not necessarily at fixed, formal hours, like traditional breakfast, lunch & dinner, but little snacks throughout the day.

    I'm notorious among our friends for never eating a single big sit-down meal, whether at their homes or in a restaurant, where I'll often order just an appetizer. Or if I do get an entrée I'll take much of it home. But I eat little bits all day long.

    pazzy saidone of the things that makes me laugh is when my father who almost always comes home from work late and eats late at night tries to tell me that i will catch stomach ulcers if i eat at 10, 11, 12 or 1 at night. icon_lol.gif last time i checked, ulcers is caused from stress or smoking cigarettes. he used to be a cigarette smoker. so far i've been eating whenever i've felt like it and i haven't gotten sick, caught ulcers or been fucked up yet. then again, my stomach is used to the abuse that i've gave it back in the days as a kid from not eating like i should, being an over picky eater and even making myself vomit on purpose. so my stomach is trained for abuse like little serbia. that's probably why my metabolism is so quick, why i never physically matured where my body has adult bone mass and etc. my pituitary gland is probably fucked up from all the years of not eating and sleeping properly as a kid.

    as far as i'm concerned, there's really no set time to eat. eat when you feel like it. heard that midnight snacks are a bad thing though but won't front... if there was a damn oreo ice cream cake in the fridge and i woke up in the wee hours of the morning then i'ma break out the cake and eat. fuck that shit.


    but you might want to research it though. everybody's different. some people can eat whenever without any effects and some can't. heard that eating late means that you could knock your brain out of order where you'll feel hungry all the time and eventually gain weight.


    Actually, ulcers are a result of bacterial infection with H. pylori. A very cool organism- a spiriliform!
