I agree with the person who said "Everyone is different, and it's all about what works for you." I tend to eat my biggest meal within an hour or two of exercise, which depending on the day might be breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Then the other meals and snacks are much smaller to compensate.

I find the more I follow I clean eating principles, the more my calories become evenly distributed between meals and snacks. And my body is happy with equal meals and snacks.

But it always doesn't work out that way, and I agree that the totals are more important than the specifics.

Everyone is different, and it's all about what works for you.

I don't really worry about them being even, more about staying within my limits for the day. And somehow that just usually works out for me.

If I'm really hungry, tho, I'll still eat. I've learned that sometimes you're just hungrier than other times, and if I don't eat, I won't sleep well. You've got to learn to trust your body.

For me it depends on my activity level for the day!!!

On a non workout days, I try to stay between 1400-1500 calories and break them into 300-350 for meals and 100-150 for snacks!!! On my long workout days where I burned 1000-1200 calories, I need to eat bigger meals and more snacks to get the 2000-2400 calories I need for the day!!! Those days my main meals are 400-500 calories and my snacks are divided and sized based on hungry!!!

Hope that helps!!!

Jackie!!!

For the most part I tend to spread my calories out pretty evenly over the day. That is just me because I don't handle feeling really full very well. I thought the book just said eat every few hours.

My main meals are larger too, and snacks, smaller. I think that is ok; I think the daily totals are most important.

For me personally, I operate better the way you're eating. If I have the true 'small meals' (300 cal each) I never feel like I've had a 'meal', ya know? There are some people who can space out the calories equally and do fine. I think it depends on 1) your goals and 2) what is something that you can live with.

And I have lost about 15# over the last 4-ish months, eating this way and exercising/lifting consistently

As long as I am eating clean I don't count calories. If my memory serves me right doesn't it say to not count calories in the book?

I can understand counting them if you are wanting loose weight in the process but I wouldn't worry about every meal being the same amount of calories. Have you read that somewhere? If so, where? I might be missing out on some info.

I have gotten good at eating a snack between each main meal. However my calorie intake for "meals" and "snacks" are not really even. I tend to eat 400-600 cal for the "main" meals and about 100-300 cal for "snacks". I understand the concept of eating meals in equal calories, but it is difficult.

I would like opinions and options.

Eat the food that God gave us, not the "food" that humans created in laboratories
