The broscience for 5-6 meals providing some metabolic advantage around here is strong. There is also a misconception that the maximum uptake of protein per meal is 30g. So people will "pulse" protein (i.e. eat 5-6 meals a day) so that they might acheive maximum anabolic response. According to this study, doing so is completely unnecessary.

"In our opinion, the preponderance of evidence indicates that the more protein in a meal, the more anabolism will be observed. This perspective is supported by a recent publication in this journal21 in which consumption of 80% of the 1.5 g protein/kg BW/day in a single meal was more anabolic than spreading the same amount of protein intake throughout the day."

If you're eating 5-6 meals a day and it is a chore, stop. It's completely unnecessary. If it's something that works for you, do it, but do not believe it's providing any anabolic or metabolic benefit.
