Chicken or egg? Is it better to schedule out your daily meal planning into smaller meals spread out eating every 2-3 hours? Or, is the argument of eating all your calories only within an 8 hour window and leaving your body on an “empty tank” to metabolize, especially for fat loss?
What do you feel gets the general public the most satisfaction as well as results?
I do not believe that there is one answer that will make everybody happy. No matter which way you eat, the bottom line is that people need to expend more energy than they consume.
People are different. I would be hard to live with if I could not eat something over the course of the day. I am also not planning except for the fact that I always have healthy things in my house that I like. If I wanted to be fancy I could call myself an ‘intuitive eater’. That does not work for everybody.
For others, well pre-planned meals are the solution. However, I found that making this suggestion is not popular with most; chances are that those who fight it tooth and nails would probably benefit the most from that kind of structure.
People are still busily searching for the magic bullet or the perfect solution. Every season brings a new approach touted as the way to east to lose 10, 20 or 30 pounds in a month.
The boring truth is as stated above: eat a little less overall and move a little more.
