Is Food Timing and Frequency Really That Important?

Is food timing and frequency of meals really that important? Lots of people out there claim it is super important and if you don't get your food in you at all the right times, you will miss out on potential muscle building opportunities or even worse, lose all your gains!

I'm not saying that "when you eat" has no importance at all since once protein breaks down into amino acids there is a shelf life before those amino acids get converted into stored energy. Rather I am saying that our bodies are super adaptive and know how to store food energy and macros for later use when we need them. Making when you eat your food less important than what you eat.

Watch my full YouTube video on this subject for all my thoughts on the topic of "Is food timing and frequency of meals really that important?"

Popeye's Fall Classic 2019 the Journey Begins

About a month ago I was asking everyone what show I should go into, there where a few options for me... The Amateur Olympia in Las Vegas and even the Canadian Nationals in Toronto, all my option are within about a month of each other so timing wise they work out. But when it came down to it I decided to go with Popeye's Fall Classic 2019 since it is a local show which means a lot less cost for me to attend and a lot easier on my family not having me away traveling on my own.

The only real downside is there is no opportunity for a Pro Card at the Popeye's Fall Classic since it is an unqualified show. That said Popeye's Fall Classic is one of the best local events with a big turnout and lots of top level athletes to compete against. At least that's what I found last time I went two years ago. Popeye's Fall Classic also gives out some really nice prizes to the overall winners including a really nice 4EverFit mountain bike, photo and video shoots, I believe some sort of $1000 gift card and of course a bunch of supplements! And this year Big Ramy is the guest poser! Wow!

My plan is to compete as a Grand Master in Physique along with the Open class to rub shoulders with the kids! I am not sure about Classic Physique even though last time I placed 3rd in Open, some room for improvement here... So I am looking at a timeline for this show to contest prep of about 3 months. I only have one more short holiday to factor in coming up in about 2 weeks so this will not get in the way, after that it will be go time in terms of cutting down, until then I will do my best to put on some size. Let's see what this old 50 year old can do representing the Grand Masters this year!
