    The necessary study to answer this question hasn't been done and might never be done because you'd need a very large number of participants to find a significant difference.

    I suspect the difference will be small.

    I am giving it a go. So far I actually prefer it because my meal sizes have reduced nicely. I was 800-900 calories per meal before at 3 times per day and now I am 600-700 calories per meal 4 times per day. Started my first ever slow bulk as of Monday this week. I feel so much better in the gym.

    I feel like at a point the micro managing does nothing. Based off what I read more activations is clearly better but honestly I don't think the xtra 100 cals from a 50 gram shake is a big deal. I put 12 oz of skim fairlife and a scoop of the whey I like for post workout. That's about 250 calories and 45 grams of protein I don't really care if I'm "wasting" some small amount of that protein because I'm getting 4-5 30g+ activations a day and more than I need in total 250 cals is not much and it tastes good and makes me feel better after lifting. So yes if the choice was 50grams once and a total of 3 or less activations in the day there would be some benefit to splitting it up. I would just drink my 45 and still get another 30 later. So I lifted yesterday I slammed a 250 cal shake after and then ate a roughly 400 cal 35G of protein dinner about 3-4 hour latter just before bed.
