total metabolic shutdown, due to the complete absence of nutrients for long periods of time, has been studied to cause approximately -30% change from your base metabolic rate.
If not eating AT ALL for 2 weeks slows your metabolism down by only 30%, how much of an effect do you really think the difference between a few hours is going to be?
edit: in reference to your post in the other thread - it is most certainly NOT a fact, it's something your average PT spouts off in a gym while not really understanding what he's saying. There are plenty of benefits to more frequent meals, but change in metabolism is not one of the big ones.
Looks like it is accord who is the idiot. Protein in the urine = getting a blowjob from a gay guy
studies mean nothing! I bet Accord read it in MEN'S FITNESS!
regardless of whatever studies may show, accord stripped himself of credibility by posting
this is turning into an e-dick competition, and fast.
some pretty good articles were linked thnks

@ your ability to self-pwn
its has some effect but it isnt going to make it go nuts...cardio helps add to it
oh an my first search netted this
"Smaller, more frequent meals keeps your blood sugar stable and provides a steady source of energy to fuel metabolism."
"Eat smaller, more frequent meals. Instead of three meals per day, try eating five or six smaller meals. By eating more frequently, there will be less time between your meals, and less chance of you experiencing such intense hunger. As an extra benefit, there is some evidence that suggests that eating more frequently can also help raise your metabolism."
keep ready studies guys...i like laughing
just showing there is always two sides...wasnt discrediting either side..and no im not kidding you.
Can you tell me how to get ripped, can i see some picks of you shredded? Since your so scientific you must be a mutant with all your studies an perfect chemistry. So please enlighten us...I will wait patiently.
Your so quick to jump on other people you must be far beyond us. I mean fuck...for 15 years now i have been told to eat more frequently to HELP metabolism and blood sugar...and from people who have been champions in my sport or made champions...god forbid I listen to people who have done it rather then some lab test with fat bodys.
In case you didnt notice...nothing urks me more then a 140lb kid like you posting like hes fucking JAY CUTLER
So how have you been, weather good? Training kicking ass or what? Bulking or cutting? Pepsi or coke?
no peer reviewed medical journal, no care....dicksock.
maybe you can find a back study or possible pec implant puny
Well, eating more frequently should prevent glucose from entering massively through the bloodstream and making insulin levels go up too much.
My back and chest have been coming along nicely...
here i'll help him out

Variations in muscle activation levels during traditional latissimus dorsi weight training exercises: An experimental study.

BACKGROUND: Exercise beliefs abound regarding variations in strength training techniques on muscle activation levels yet little research has validated these ideas. The purpose of the study is to determine muscle activation level, expressed as a percent of a normalization contraction, of the latissimus dorsi, biceps brachii and middle trapezius/rhomboids muscle groups during a series of different exercise tasks.
METHODS: The average muscle activity during four tasks; wide grip pulldown, reverse grip pull down [RGP], seated row with retracted scapula, and seated rows with non-retracted scapulae was quantified during two 10 second isometric portions of the four exercises. A repeated measures ANOVA with post-hoc Tukey test was used to determine the influence of exercise type on muscle activity for each muscle.
RESULTS & DISCUSSION: No exercise type influenced biceps brachii activity. The highest latissimus dorsi to biceps ratio of activation occurred during the wide grip pulldown and the seated row. Highest levels of myoelectric activity in the middle trapezius/rhomboid muscle group occurred during the seated row. Actively retracting the scapula did not influence middle trapezius/rhomboid activity.
CONCLUSION: Variations in latissimus dorsi exercises are capable of producing small changes in the myoelectric activity of the primary movers.
Don't worry nobody will notice the legs.
