The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of dietary protein and eating frequency on perceived appetite and satiety during weight loss. A total of 27 overweight/obese men (age 47 ± 3 years; BMI 31.5 ± 0.7 kg/m2) were randomized to groups that consumed an energy-restriction diet (i.e., 750 kcal/day below daily energy need) as either higher protein (HP, 25% of energy as protein, n = 14) or normal protein (NP, 14% of energy as protein, n = 13) for 12 weeks. Beginning on week 7, the participants consumed their respective diets as either 3 eating occasions/day (3-EO; every 5 h) or 6 eating occasions/day (6-EO; every 2 h), in randomized order, for 3 consecutive days. Indexes of appetite and satiety were assessed every waking hour on the third day of each pattern. Daily hunger, desire to eat, and preoccupation with thoughts of food were not different between groups.
[Conclusions:] The HP group experienced greater fullness throughout the day vs. NP (511 ± 56 vs. 243 ± 54 mm · 15 h; P < 0.005). When compared to NP, the HP group experienced lower late-night desire to eat (13 ± 4 vs. 27 ± 4 mm, P < 0.01) and preoccupation with thoughts of food (8 ± 4 vs. 21 ± 4 mm; P < 0.01). Within groups, the 3 vs. 6-EO patterns did not influence daily hunger, fullness, desire to eat, or preoccupation with thoughts of food. The 3-EO pattern led to greater evening and late-night fullness vs. 6-EO but only within the HP group (P < 0.005). Collectively, these data support the consumption of HP intake, but not greater eating frequency, for improved appetite control and satiety in overweight/obese men during energy restriction-induced weight loss.

In the end I think more people need to take some courses in biology to understand these things.. I find that there's a lot of body builder types that claim science but have never stepped into a classroom. In one case I found a guy who thought that the hyrdate in carbohydrate thought that it meant it makes you retain water..

The debate continues, if eating the meat of a stressed hormone injected and polluted animal has any real effects on ourselves, the organic vs the fabricated items, etc, etc.

Let's say I consume 75 grams of protein (half in the form of amino acids) in one meal versus that same balance of 75 consumed across two - which one results in higher absorption rates for that protein? Or does it really matter?
Further - what kind of stress is put on my digestive system by my dietary habits?
Does gorging one meal down a day risk gastric problems or some other side-effect? How about "grazing" (perhaps being more prone to incontinence)?
. Even if it was just junk from the geedunk - something with some sugar helped me engage (though this could merely be psychological in nature, or perhaps psychosomatic - I never tried using artificial sweeteners to see if the 'pick me up' was due to the presence of sugars or the anticipation of them).
Working out makes me lean and defined as hell - but still weighing in about the same.
I suppose it would make sense - my body operates more on what is coming in, rather than what is stored. Someone with more body fat is likely going to have a metabolism less influenced by the frequency and consistency of their diet. I just know that my energy levels and even sleep patterns are heavily influenced by my diet. A lack of food coming in means more sleeping and less doing. A lot of food coming in means I'm up pacing like a caged lion, looking for something to do.
