What these people believe is that consuming food more often during the day will keep their body constantly in a state of high metabolic rate. Therefore, although they consume a large amount of calories, the fact that their metabolism is non-stop all day, they will not store any fat. The idea makes sense and I do not blame those.

Given an average TEF of 10%, you’ll burn 300 calories in both cases. Numerous studies demonstrate that increasing or decreasing meal frequency does not affect total calories burned ( 5 ). Conventional nutrition wisdom has always told us to eat less and exercise more if we want to lose weight. In theory, this makes sense – burn more calories than you eat, and the pounds will come off.

There is a dearth of research on meal timing in relation to exercise for weight loss. However, many studies indicate that eating before your workout can increase performance, which in turn helps you burn more calories. Studies also suggest that eating the majority of your calories early in the day helps encourage. Science says that people who eat more likely move more, and therefore burn more calories. ” Research suggests that when subjects were provided too few calories, their NEAT scores dropped,” says Kristin Koskinen, a registered dietitian. “This is in contrast to subjects who were deliberately overfed calories, who saw a resulting. Increased Meal Frequency Does Not Promote Greater Weight Loss in Subjects Who Were Prescribed an 8-week Equi-Energetic Energy-Restricted Diet PubMed There have been reports of an inverse relationship.

Metabolic rate is the number of calories your body burns within a given time period. The idea that eating more frequent, smaller meals increases metabolic rate is a persistent myth. It is true that. We conclude that increasing meal frequency from three to six per day has no significant effect on 24-h fat oxidation, but may increase hunger and the desire to eat.

Introduction Popular advice for weight control advocates the consumption of small, frequent meals. New research reveals more details on how stress can make you gain weight. Women burn fewer calories in the 24 hours following stressful and gravy (the meal came to 930 calories and 60.

  • After watching this video
    I feel the need to share this because I spent several years switching
    from diet to diet without any success until I saw Dianas magic plan (i
    found it on google). Without doubt its the most weight loss that I have
    ever achieved and it is still working to this day.

  • Depends on how you want to look at it. There has been research to show those who regularly consumed breakfast typically had more controlled diets/weight than those who did not. All depends on context.

  • Simple matter of finding out how many calories you need to maintain and exceeding that amount. Some might find it easier to intake more calories with more frequent meals. The point of this video however is to say there’s no benefit to manipulating meal timing as far as metabolism goes.

  • Intermittent fasting with 1-2 meals per day works for me because it’s convenient for me and I like to eat a lot of food at once. Personal preference really, like you said I don’t think it’s any better than small meals as long as calories are the same 

  • I have been doing six meals a day for two weeks now and I have noticed that I am less likely to snack throughout the day and find it easier to stick to my target amount of calories.

  • Thank you for confirming this information!! I’m definitely not a breakfast person!! And people are always telling me that I need to eat breakfast!! I’m Gald I herd this from you!! Great �� now I know I don’t have to force myself to eat 5 times a day, I always had problems eat 5 times a day ����‍♀️

  • Every time I hear people talking about how eating more meals speeds up your metabolism I just bite my tongue to not start an argument lol.

  • Coming from FB share that Alan Aragon did. Just wanted to drop a like, comment and subscribe. Keep up the great vids. Nice, concise break down. Enjoy the TL:DR format. While I used to love reading PubMed and “debating” on AnabolicMinds. I no longer have the time.

  • When i dont eat i get sluggish and grumpy and by all means im not fat im fairly skinny with muscle as you can see in all my fight videos. At 6 am i have a shake with 1cup of oatmeal a banana and half cup of berries. At 9am is union break for 15 mins, i eat a turkey sandwhich with hummus. At 12pm is luch for 30 mins i eat whole wheat pasta and chicken. when i get home around 330 from work i eat sweet potatoe and chicken breast. Then i train from 5-7 and round 8 i eat some chicken and veggies.

  • Is this true for Ectomorphs as well? Cause I’ve heard the reasoning for 5-6 small meals a day for hard-gainers is because Ectomorphs have a much faster metabolism and need a constant flow of nutrients and calories so the body doesn’t go catabolic, especially if doing a lot of physical activity.

  • Great topic and I totally agree with the total amount of calorie per day fact. It’s great to be reminded. I’ve subscribed and gave this video a thumbs-up. Thanks for sharing.

  • Good thing you made this video lol (it’ll help lots of new people). When I first started dieting I was so confused about this subject… As long as I hit those macros that’s all that matters to me xD. However eating more frequently helps to not stuff yourself at the end of the day, and also having* a fast metabolism helps me out a bit.

  • Well Ben Pakulski and vince del monte have definetly a different opinion, they day that you have to eat every 2-3 hours to maximize protein synthesis.

  • Hey Brandon Ive Been Following Your Channel For A Long Time, You’ve Always Given Great Advice, Im A Teen Bodybuilder Check Out My Channel…

  • I remember the good old days when i’d bring tupperware everywhere. Biggest pain in the butt. Now I just eat 2-3 big meals a day with a protein bar and/or shake before a workout. Works well for me.

  • Thank you for debunking all the nonsense Lawrence! All about maintaining the lean body mass and losing the unwanted fat! Great progress by the way! Didn’t believe that was you in the pic lol

  • True that! Remarkable how many “(fill_in_blank_here) fitness” dudes post these loquacious, long winded (was that redundant?) vid’s on the minutia surrounding working out. I think you did a vid on that. Maybe Ronny Coleman gave us the right advise, “Shut up and squat…”

  • Great video Brandon, as always. Quick question though. How important is it to consume a meal immediately post-workout? Would there be any difference opposed to waiting a few hours to eat?

  • I might need to up my calories so i dont lose muscle. I have been dropping weight fast and i know I’ve lost some muscle already, I don’t wanna lose anymore. I do a fast powerwalk (4-5mph) for 40 min twice a day, walk my dog for 30min and 10min HIIT session. The RMR/BMR calculator you suggested on one of your older videos tells me i should be eating 2,800 calories to maintain my weight. It does sound correct, maybe i should bump up to 2,500 calories a day? Thanks for your help bro, STAY BIG!

  • I’ve read that eating more frequently while dieting gives a slight advantage in maintaining muscle mass, probably negligible, but slight nonetheless

  • I like 2-3 meals a day. Being only 5’7″ I have fairly low calorie needs. So eating fewer meals allows me to eat more so I feel fuller. Also I can add more variety to my diet.

  • May sound like bro-science but when I eat throughout the day I’m constantly hungry for more. If I’m IF’ing or just eating three meals I feel fuller and eat less. Also what gives, you match.

  • Definitely agree,it does depend on the person and meals they eat as opposed to how many times they eat. love the graphics in this vid lol

  • Whatever happened to just eating when you’re hungry and if you want to gain weight eat more and If you want to lose weight eat less. Complicated stuff….

  • I used to be obsessed with the 6times a day meal thing…i know now thats not necessary as long as i get my protein requirements in a 24hour period ��

  • hey brandon so why is everybody recommending this shit everywhere?? magazines…newspapers..tv…..etccccc…oh..and doctors….what caused such controversy and flutter?? one would think those “educated people” know about what u just explained here but they still insist and recommend on eating 6meals erry 2-3hrs…whyyy??? mindblown!!

  • I would think it’s hard to hit all of your macros in 3 meals though… eating 200+ grams of protein in 3 meals would be difficult..

  • Eating increases blood sugar which activates insulin. You can not burn body fat in the presence of insulin therefore, eating more frequently would work against you in fat loss. This is why I love to intermittent fast! �� great video!

  • I eat when i can. While at work, i grab something quick, like a protein drink or fruit cup and keep it going. It works for me. Awesome video!��

  • So by what you are saying i can eat TWO 1,500 calories meals and that will give me the same result as (6)500 calories meals as long as both fit my macros?

  • 4 meals a day works good for me, simply because of schedule.  Meals are usually about 550-700 calories.  Plus a post workout shake, but I don’t count that as a meal.

  • I don’t put much thought into it unless someone is having issues with a high stimulant tolerance or they are adding a ton of cream/sugar to it and are wondering why they’re not losing weight.

  • I honestly do IF (20hr fast 4 hour eating window) and in my eating window i consume 2100 calories (cutting) witch makes me feel like im not on a diet because I’m stuffing my face in with complex carbs, veggies, fruit and lean meats like a fat man… lol. I dont feel weak through out the day or in the morning, i just feel hungry as hell after i do my cardio in the morning, i reward myself with 1 cup of steal cut oats mix with whey protein and natural peanutbutter! FUCK YEAH… BREAKFAST! lol

  • Hey B! Took on board whatcha said, and tried to open up my hips/get a little lower; if it’s no trouble, could you look at my latest squat video to see if it looks groovehh? thanks in advance, either way! <3

  • Hey The Lifting Dermatologist!! Great info on Meal Frequency… We don’t eat at a specific frequency.. We just eat a smoothie every morning, whatever time we get up.. regardless of what time we get up… a few healthy snacks throughout the day, and one larger meal throughout the day and we have maintained our weight for the past 2 1/2 years!! Great video and thank you for sharing.. Watched in full!! <3

  • This is great video content Ryan. I would talk about this more and emphasize this topic more as people just want to hear about training but discount the importance of nutrition

  • yea i heard you say that in one of your vids but my point is, there isn’t a protein storage tank in our bodies, right…so that excess protein must go to waste…b/c u r just going to eat even more protein soon after…our bodies can’t possibly utilize “all” of a 100 grams of protein digested in one sitting…at any time in the day when you are only going to continue eating more and more protein the whole day, day after day, right??

  • Unprocessed and whole foods… I wish people would understand the importance of this! We eat so much crap that is marketed as “healthy”. Good video man

  • This video helps to sort out the truth from the misconceptions about our eating habits. I grew up thinking I had to eat a heavy breakfast daily, even on days when I didn’t feel like doing so. Thank you so much, Dr. Steven!

  • A sedentary person who say eats to maintain weight isnt going to burn calories as fast as a person who is physically active and is in a calorie deficit. I’m not saying eating 6 small meals alone is the end all in burning calories but when you combine eating more frequently, eating in a calorie deficit, exercising consistently and getting adequate sleep, you will burn more calories than a sedentary person who only eats to maintain weight.

  • Thanks for clearing up about the thermic effect thepry. I didn’t know it existed. But it’s filed away so that I don’t ever use it as a reason to justify why I eat 6 times a day.

    I started eating 6 times a day about ten years ago. Not because of thermic effect; but in the belief that it helped maintain good levels of sugar in the blood. I still eat 6 times a day…. not for any scientific reason… but it’s habit now. Every week I make up 20 bowls of brown rice, mince, and vegies for eating at work. If I want to lose weight I make them a little smaller, or bigger to gain. In the weekends I eat less often, sometimes I just forget, sometimes it’s the lack of routine… Eat when you’re hungry, stop when you’re full. Life can be that simple.

  • with both scenarios its hard to tell how long it will take an individual to digest as well as everyone is different but i do feel having less meals and higher calories each meal that chances are you wont absorb all the nutrients from that meal, but i agree its up to the individual and everyone should be flexible or open to both ideas and at least give them a go and see what works best for them:)

  • Really nice tips man. A lot of people don’t have the time for 3-6 meals.
    I just base everything on macros and whether protein is high enough to preserve muscle, like you said. It’s mainly down to calories in.
    Very nice video mate!

  • 4 to 6 meals a deal is my sweet spot for either losing bodyfat or gaining muscle. I suspect that works for most people that are struggling to lose bodyfat. I really believe in the body goes into starvation mode when you eat less infrequently

  • Thanks Brandon your a kind considerate person.. That’s why you have so many followers plus common knowledge on weight training and nutrition

  • I still stick to bro science because I love it. I hate taking in more than 50 grams of protein at a time. I feel bloated as shit. I rather stick to 5-6 meals a day. Is hard to eat 8 oz of chicken in one meal let alone 16 oz or 1 pound. I think this is what many people miss. I remember trying to eat one cup of eggwhites along with a cup of cooked oatmeal,thats alot of food and the macros are only 30 grams of protein with 57 grams of carbs. I could eat up to 150 grams of carbs a meal but thats it

  • After all the videos I have seen on nutrition I have learned two basic things.
    1. Eat quality food (stay away from weird fad diets like drinking gallons of milk every day or taking carbs to zero for the rest of your life)
    2. When following rule #1 caloric intake determines weight gain or loss (and is respective to current body weight: a 300lb person can lose weight while eating more calories than a 200lb person also trying to lose weight) This means if someone is telling you that you must eat x amount of calories/carbs to have x result then they are being to general because everyone processes food differently. 

    Great video, I love to watch “voices of reason in an often reason-less youtube world.”
    Blessings

  • I just eat when I feel like I really need it, and try to never wait until I get super hungry, because that may cause me to overeat.  I try to keep my meals/snacks relatively small.  Now that I’ve lost considerable body fat, I’ve noticed that only my brain tells me I am hungry, not my brain and my stomach at the same time like it used to be.  That helped me reduce junk food cravings and unnecessary mindless eating a lot.  My meals are all small meals and sometimes individual snack items (like 28g of almonds or something like that), all weighed.  Rarely do I eat a plate full of food, unless it is something like grilled chicken and a whole can of green beans.  I’m still keeping my average daily calories in a slight deficit until I hit my goal weight.  I did increase protein by 30g per day a while back because after looking at my macros for a few days and averaging those numbers, my fat intake was way too high.  Now I get more food volume with the same daily calories, due to the reduced calorie density of getting more protein and less fat daily.  This change also helps lower net usable calories because protein is the most energy intensive to digest, so only about 70% of it gets utilized.  Therefore, my actual calorie deficit is a bit larger than the normal calculations would indicate.

  • Whoever told you that was wrong. You can “absorb” much more protein than you probably think. It just will take longer to do so if you eat a large meal, but it will get used if needed.

  • I have a question Brandon, being that I take in 2,100-2,200 (sometimes I have an extra glasses of almond/soymilk at breakfast) calories worth of food a day, does that mean at the end of the day im taking in around 1,800-1,900 calories after you input TEF into the equation? This of course would be with out subracting calories burned in physical exercise or basic motor functions your body does in everyday life.

  • I was for past 8 weeks on a diet where I was following whenever I could IF 16/8 with two meals of 1000 cal each per day(2000cal a day-that is 500 deficit for me) (150-175g of protein,don’t know other macros) and I lost 7kg of pure fat,I think that I also built some muscle at the same time,but not sure…
    (refeeds every weekend for one day of eating whatever(alcocol included))

    I’m now 175cm with 76kg(was 83kg) in the morning,perfect.

  • I’ve heard that frequant meals not only spike metabolism, but also spikes insulin production! So in the end it can lead to diabetes.

  • No that 3o grams figure was based on early research regarding protein utilization, which just calculated nitrogen absorption. Nitrogen balance and total protein utilization are not the same thing. Furthermore, what does “at one time, or one sitting” even mean. Gastric emptying is not immediate, and the more you eat, the more you reduce the speed of gastric emptying. Stop listening to the broscience dude.

  • this isn’t surprising at all that if you eat less more frequently compared to more less frequently, that it averages out to being the same TEF activation calories burned. its simple mathematics and logic.

  • i heard about not having to eat frequently from Matt Ogus and it made my life so much easier and now seeing this video made it even more assuring!

  • That “protein storage tank” is called the blood stream; even during a 24 hour fast, you still have amino acids circulating throughout the bloodstream. The body doesn’t waste macronutrients. And yes, your body will use ALL of the 100 grams of protein chugged at once; that which is not needed for tissue synthesis will be converted to either glucose or ketone bodies for energy.

  • man when i first talked to you about what i was eating late 2010 i think, i was eating very little, super pretzels and pistachios all day lawl.. i was 176 and just ran. two years later after actually eating balenced meals watching the types of food i eat and eating more frequent. w/ running and balenced workouts, im at 200 now and feeling great prolly best shape every! all that wild salmon and greens adds up! great job with your channel btw =) mby ill make vids again soon!

  • ok but what about only being able to consume and utilize 30 grams or protein or so at any one time or in one sitting!???

    Our bodies can’t possibly utilize 50-100plus grams of protein in one sitting right???????

  • I agree with you! I never eat breakfast just coffee with creamer. I could never do the 6 small meals a day thing anyway it just did not seem like common sense advice to me. Susan

  • You’re looking at it wrong. You can only “digest” so much in a given time, so if you take in a ton of protein it would just take longer to process and use if needed.

  • again interesting but of course if you eat too much then you wont lose weight
    ����you watch us we watch you✅ full view����✅ left a like ����������

  • thats 5 solid meals so scratch my 3 meals and 3snacks. my theory is what works for one dont work for all. the uploader of this video tells me eat bigger meals and all i need is 3. i loled at that n didnt even reply. i just want people to do whats right for them. everyone can give advice but everyones life is different. i do physical labor at work and train boxin after, i cannot eat bigger meals. big meals and i wouldnt function properly at work or at boxing cuz my body would be busy digesting

  • Have you ever heard of something called starvation mode? Google it. Your body burns calories less efficiently when you’re hungry. So eating frequently in itself won’t make you lose weight but it will help your body not get into starvation mode which will help ou burn more calories

  • it all depends on the individual, i work 8 hours a day construction carrying steel, then 2 hrs at night of muay thai/boxing. 3 meals a day and i would die cuz my body would have no energy. 3 decent size meals and 3 snacks in between each meal correlating to 6 meals a day works for me

  • Totally agree with you i always eat 4 big meals instead of 6 but it never prevented me from getting lean. Like how you have science to back you up bro!

  • Another great contribution.
    Evolution has made things simple. I wonder how complicated and time-critical the processes are described by some.
    As you already say: “Nonsens”.

  • Man I have to say I am extremely impressd with your channel! I like this video in particular because I was always under the notion that I needed to eat 5-6 even 7 meals a day to gain mass, and for years I practiced this method with decent results; however, after every single meal I would experience horrible gas (sorry for being gross) which led me away from my muscle building pursuit. When I stumbled across this gem I had an “ah ha” moment and by practicing your advice, my symptoms has vanished!

  • In my personal experience-I know that makes this statement anecdotal-those who go without eating for long periods tend to grossly overeat during their infrequent meals. (This is my own tendency as well; thus, I do have a bias.) Eating smaller meals more frequently results in better “waist management.” (so to speak)

  • Take your point the metabolism effect is BS, but what about the possibility that more frequent, smaller meals leads to better absorption of the macro and micro nutrients from those meals than from consuming just at three times per day?

  • why does everyone forget insulin as the reason for meal frequency? meals frequency, to me, was explained as a way to control glucose spikes and therefor insulin spikes. when glucose in the blood is too high (which happens after a big meal), the body transforms the excess glucose into fatty acids and stores it in fat cells. so if you eat a smaller meal there is less glucose being turned into fat. by shorting the periods between meals we end up getting more energy from glucose throughout the day than from fatty acids, and since getting energy from glucose is faster than fatty acids it is possible to speed up our metabolism (by eating smaller meals more frequently).

  • Nobody should be realistically eating 6 meals a day lol

    It’s simply an old wives tale because the head of the food industry knows that people have been programs to use this as an excuse to eat all day long, up until they go to bed… It’s a marketing scam

  • Hey man ik know this is a little off topic but it has to do with something that kinda relates. Anyways can you tell me your view on Coffee? im sure other people would like to know to because some people cant go with a cup in the morning. Question is, is it good for you, can you loose gains from this, can it slow down gaining process, etc… Thanks man!

  • So lets say I work at a restaurant as a busboy and I am on my feet walking, cleaning, lifting etc. for 5-6 hours straight taking very short breaks(1-2minutes) for water and a handful of peanuts. In those 6 hours I am getting no real calories and burning A LOT of them. I think I’ve stopped gaining weight since I started this job a month ago so I’m really wondering how I work around this, or if I even can. & I’ve tried eating a lot before and after but still no gains.

  • Interesting video i give thumbs up + 63 ���� �� I wish you a nice Friday and a good start into a great weekend �� Best regards Jutta ��

  • A study in 2014 showed eating 2 x day is far superior to eating 6 x day for weight loss and insulin control when eating the same number of calories.

  • So here is my question then: I’m told that your body can only absorb about 30-40 grams of protein per meal. That means if you were to consume 3 meals a day, you’re only able to get 90-120 grams per day. However if you have five meals at, say, 30 grams per meal you can absorb 150 grams which happens to be my goal. Perhaps I’m being misinformed; can you shed some light on this subject?

  • You forgot to mention protein feedings, and the superiority of mutliple bolus feedings as opposed to 1 or 2. 4-5 seems to be the sweet spot.

    In Layne Norton we trust, mane.

  • @CampbellFitnessTV Eating 5-6 small meals a day does keep the metabolism going right? Because in the intro you said it definitely is not true. Did you mean it isn’t the only way to keep your metabolism up or it just doesn’t work

  • I’me just awful when it comes to eating enough. It’s always been my problem! Most of the time i miss my daily macros. Yet since getting rid of the higher volume lighter weight training and replacing it with heavier weights i’v still added a healthy amount of weight. I just wonder how much bigger i would get if i ever actually started to eat enough???

  • I really enjoy your videos and having study some of the things you talk about helps a lot. I know you have done a video on body calipers but can you make a video demonstrating how to get better using them and how you do it personally?

  • You can interpret however you’d like:) As far as the furnace model, there is plenty of research out there to show that it’s not the case.

  • gawd DAMMIT! Great but painfully obvious info. The bro lives on and must be battled though. But really fuckin-“A” on the graphics and editing and effects. Seriously great video. Gold Standard Shtuff.

  • beautiful weight loss tips!!a fixed diet structure that fits our lifestyle is so important!!thank you for sharing your wonderful research and bursting myths about diet plans!!fantastic presentation!!

  • The only purpose to eating 5-8 meals a day is because some people have crazy high metabolism. I could have been to a buffet and stuffed my face but 2-3 hours later I’m hungry again.
     Not a very good idea for a endo-mesomorph

  • 3 meals worked for me (along with in a caloric deficit and more HIT cardio and good sleep 8+ hrs) to a certain point but I hit a wall in fat loss. But the interesting happened when i increased to 4 to 6 meals i actually was able to eat more food and keep the fat loss process going to lose those last 10 to 15 lbs to get under 10% bodyfat when i measured with skin fold caliphers.

  • Great video i like it��. If your into keeping fit and wanting to build muscle, take a look at my channel loads of workouts on there and could learn from each other’s channel.

  • Episode 29 of the series! Didn’t realize there have been that many guess I need to go back and watch a few others. I changed my eating 2 weeks ago to just breakfast. Different than what almost everyone says but it’s working for me. When I try to eat 3-7 small meals the size of a few is too large and over time that adds up to a big surplus of calories. I’ve always enjoyed breakfast and have been a morning person. So I find if I eat between 430-6 AM a very large meal then I can start seeing patients, work all day and into the evening. Do my workout and then head home for a shower and off to bed and don’t miss eating at all later in the day. Not for everyone I’m sure but it is working for me so far.

  • I tried all that.  Intermitten fasting, Sometimes you don’t have time to eat so you are fasting,  I prefer to cycle my carbs, makes dieting more fun. I have lost 85lbs and The best method is tracking macros. period. eat according to my activity level
