ANSWER #3 of 8

I'm torn between this... I would always stop eating at 7 cause I went to bed early to get up for work... Now my trainer told me to eat every two hours small meals.

Here's the thing.

It's a false assumption slurped up by the public media. The body isn't a fat-storing clock, so it won't just store fat/weight by you eating at an exact time.

Eat more calories than you burn = gain weight
Eat less calories than you burn = lose weight
Eat the same calories you burn = maintain weight

That's all there is to it. Studies in past years showed that eating carbs at night slows down GH release so you grow less/sleep less/get fat. They also said years back any high spike in insulin causes fat gain - which has been proven to be irrelevant in some scenarios since one or two spikes won't do anything for you unless you have some underlying diseases already.
