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 agree with Karin that a ‘cookie cutter’ way of eating is like a ‘cookie cutter’ exercise plan. So many things come into play: genetics, personality, health issues, geographic location, age. The nutritionists I know with whom I have discussed this seem to have that take as well, though that is definitely a small sample size.
Len Kravitz did a fascinating lecture on fat metabolism at IDEA world. If you wanted to check out his site he has a number of references to great articles on this topic. I think his research and his perspective are both really great input in thinking about this topic.
