    On a normal basis now, I've caught myself (about every 3 days) having to break from my normal 2-3 hour pattern of 300 calories. I eat from 6 a.m. - midnight mostly. What that means is that I eat around 7 times a day, roughly 2,100 calories.

    About every third day, I find that I've been having some issues, and falling into this pattern:

    6 a.m. - banana (200 calories)
    8 a.m. - GoLean (250 calories)
    noon - wrap (about 300 calories)
    2 p.m. - lasagna or hotdogsx2(vegeterian) (300 calories)
    5 p.m. - another wrap and a PBJ on multigrain wheat (about 600 calories combined)
    9 p.m. - banana (200 calories)
    midnight - GoLean (250 calories)

    *anotation* a wrap is a custom deal, made by me.
    Wheat tortilla
    spinach
    Snap peas
    Kiwi
    Pineapple
    Jalapenos
    iceburg lettuce
    cucumbers
    green onions
    chives
    w/ hot mustard sauce

    Its so big, you have to hold it like a taco, but its all veggies, and damn good.


    Anyhow, the point was, does anybody else find themselves eating sporadic like this occassionally? Is it bad really?

    I'm confused. You said that usually you eat every 3 hours, about 7 times per day for a total of 2100 cals, right?

    How does that differ from the "unusual" routine you posted? A few fewer cals for some meals, a few more for some, seems like it all shakes out?

    I need close to 3000 calories to maintain my activity level. I shoot for three sturdy meals and a bunch of more snack-like meals. It kind of comes down to listening to your body and making sure to meet its needs.

    Those fall under "essential dietary supplements".
