Incorrect. Fat only gets stored if there is a surplus of NET calories. If my maintenance for any given day is 2000 calories, then I could eat 2000 in one meal and I wouldn't gain any fat at all (providing I don't eat again that day). It's obviously not smart, but it highlights the basic flaw in your thinking. The body does not simply take it's required nutrients from a meal and store the rest as fat. Calorie is king.

Who said anything about three small meals? The point is that you can get your daily caloric intake through whatever is convenient for you. It makes no different if that's through 3 large meals or 6 small meals. I personally do around 5-6 because it's easier for me; certainly not because it has any effect on my metabolism (it doesn't).

See above. Eating 6 small meals has no metabolic benefits over eating 3 larger meals on any given day. Studies can be provided if you still wish to disagree.

The blood sugar level notion is a contentious point. I won't disagree with it because I'm in no position to. With regards to hunger, I agree. That's why I eat smaller and more often. I just recognize it's not going to boost my metabolism.

You think that eating three square meals a day crashes your glycogen so much that its gonna start eating away muscle? Come on, man.

I might be crazy, but I'd be right.

You talk like I'm on about eating three meals consisting of a few grapes and a piece of toast. Everything I say revolves around caloric intake and the breakdown of macros to reach whichever goal we're trying to hit. Also, I'm presuming we're talking about this in the context that we're training with heavy weights.

Incorrect. First point has been discussed at length if we're talking about metabolic rates. Refer to SS's post above for more about the relationship of calories & fat/weight gain/loss. Oh, and It's nutritionist.

This is fun.
