In fact, I still have friends who think that eating 6 times a day is better than 3, or that too much of a certain food makes you fat.
Calorie is king.
6 smaller meals spread throughout the day is much better than 3. My metabolism would be shot if I tried going on three meals a day again. You shouldn't go long amounts of time without eating unless you're sleeping. Your digestive system slows way down, so it's good to have casein protein right before you go to sleep.
