Is it better to get all your calories in one meal so that your body isn't regularly producing insulin or does the body have trouble processing all that food at once? also, the meal in question would be low carb and high fat.

4 eggs and 6 strips of bacon @ 70 calories each = 700 calories. Throw in 100 calories of veggies sauteed in the bacon grease and you're all set.

Timing is EXTREMELY overrated. If you feel good working out fasted do it. Don't wanna eat right after your workout? Don't have to. Just be sure to hit your macro goals for the day at any point and you will be fine.
