Meal freq
I havent seen a post about 3 meals vs 5-6 meals. Not in terms of metabolissm, but what about blood sugar, insulin, storage of nutirents etc?

It doesn't matter. Blood sugar, in a healthy individual, is pretty tightly controlled.

Insulin drops.

If you mean nutrient partitioning when you say storage of nutrients... it tends to be improved.

Eat real foods....it's a slow and steady release.

Eat processed stuff....it's quicker breakdown and release.

So you can snack on zone bars/protein shakes every 2 hours....or just eat a big steak and sweet potato and be full for 4-5....and probably get the same nutrient delivery.
