How often should you eat?

Is it true that small, regular meals every four hours are the right way to build muscle, or can you stick to three meals a day if those meals are full of the right stuff? Nutritionist Christine Bailey has the answer

There’s much debate about nutrient timing and meal frequency around exercise. Generally speaking, when you eat your food is nowhere near as important as ensuring you hit your energy needs and macronutrients over the whole day. Your muscles are not going to dwindle if you skip a meal (e.g follow intermittent fasting) or don’t eat every two to three hours. So long as you eat enough protein every day and combine it with the right training, you won’t lose muscle.
