mine look like this
7 to 730 breakfast
10am snack
12 to 1pm lunch
3 or 4 pm snack
6 or 7pm dinner
I think Dr Sears says do not go any longer then 5 hours between meals

Every 2.5 or 3 hours

Never go more than 4 hours without eating.

I'm doing a 15-18 hour fast each day as per the IF protocol, so mine tend to go:

sometime between 11 am and noon: 5 or 6 block breakfast
early pm: 5 or 6 block lunch
mid pm: 3 block snack
late pm: 6 block dinner.

I add in extra fat to each meal to bump up the calories. Only been doing this a couple of weeks so can't report on anything as yet. But no negative response at present in terms of energy levels/performance.

Thanks that really helps

So far ive manged 9:30 brekfast, 12:30 lunch 3 o'clock snack Dinner for about 6ish then late snack not till 11.

Just trying to get to grips with it only been a couple of days have only really felt hungry late night. So may have to tweak it a bit!

Was prescribed a 5 block day but felt that was too much so am test driving the 4 for a bit but looking like i may need to go up to 5.

Neil it does sem like a lot of food but after a while your body adjusts. But play around with what works for you. Who would think a diet plan that would have you saying thats too much food and still see great results
