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.
