good answers. @justinz - you didn't come off snarky at all. And yes, with my limited eating time I often went across the street to Chick-fil-a and gained 30+ lbs in the time I was off paleo (about ten months) . I couldn't work out either because... (more)

Hey all just hoping someone can help me clear the air on this one. I've been practicing IF for about a week and a half in the form of 8 hour feeding windows and 16 hour fasts with one 24 hour fast per week. Not sure exactly if that is "OK" but I... (more)

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.

I generally eat a medium sized meal around noon, and a much larger meal around 7pm. sometimes I eat three meals and sometimes I just do dinner. Depends on my activity, and how hungry I am.
