Question 6 meals a day / Protein

To those who eat every 2-3 hours, what constitutes a "meal"? I am not following any specific diet plan, but have heard that it is a really good idea to have six meals a day. So, I am curious if something like yogurt would count as a meal or not help or make it worse? (Not for all six, but. . .)

Also, to those who have had success with eating many times a day, when is your start "time" and end "time"? I am definitely awake more than 12 hours a day.

Last question - I know getting plenty of protein is good when you are trying to build muscles. What qualifies as protein other than eggs?

Thanks for any advice!!!

This is how the doc told me to do it. Take a normal, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Just break it in half make it two meals. Today for lunch I had cottage cheese, and a salad with the works. Had the cottage cheese for pre lunch and the salad for lunch. If you look under the thread planning for Tuesday you can see how I broke my meals down. Way to much food for me. I had to stuff myself to get that amount of food in.

Everything is a choice; we make the choice to be what we want to be or just talk about being what we want to be.


God, keep your arms around my shoulders and your hands across my mouth.

Sometimes God doesn't whisper in our ear what he wants us to hear. Sometimes he jumps up and down screaming PUT DOWN THAT COOKIE. We just don't listen.

Okay...if you're working out (ie lifting weights) a lot...check out Body for life. In answer to your question....a yogurt is a carb (it does have some protein but not enough for muscle gain). Try adding some protein with it...some ham or turkey or a can of tuna or a hard boiled egg. Protein with every meal is good. (I lost a lot of weight in the past but put it back on because I stopped doing what works). Good luck.
