1) What sort of pros/cons are there from eating every 30 minutes (while awake) from a bodybuilding standpoint. If I were to eat 1 every 30 minutes from 6am-9pm (15 hours awake, every day except weekends), totaling 30oz meat...

Or 85g fat/243g protein

... what benefits might I reap over time? Also, could you time carbs this way? Surely broscience says this would be more beneficial that eating every 4 hours o.o

I look nothing like my avi. Lost 36lbs from that and gained some muscle.

It appears that eating too frequently could potentially be detrimental to the goal of gaining muscle mass in that muscle tissue becomes insensitive to further stimulation by amino acids, increasing protein oxidation in the liver. Eating more frequently than every three hours would seem to not only be unnecessary (based on the rate of digestion of whole proteins) but could possibly be detrimental.

I suggest you read the whole article, but I would presume that theoretically it should work for cutting, practically it would yield any real difference in comparison to using a more feasible meal schedule.

Even if it does work who can really eat every 30 mins. I would get fired!!!
