I think so. The reason for eating throughout the day is to keep insulin levels low and to keep your body supplied with nutrients. If you're awake for that time, then it would be best to eat more meals. I would eat while I'm asleep if I could figure out a way to do it. Sucks that you don't get to sleep more though...that's when your body recovers.

^^ I agree, but will add a bit. I wouldnt "eat more", I would eat more meals, but keep your daily macros the same.

most of the pro's and serious guys. eat every 2 or 3 hours so long as they're awake. give that a go.

I wouldn't say so much as low, but steady.

I think that it depends to you whether you are hungry or not. Just refer to your body clock so that you will not have problems with it. Also eat only nutritious food so that you will not gain more weight.

It doesn't have to do with whether you feel hungry or not.
