Nutritional expert and personal trainer David Kingsbury addresses the issue of when to take your meals and supplements. Going against conventional wisdom, Kingsbury does not feel that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, nor does he hew to the idea that a person should not eat dinner too late, as that will not allow time for the body to consume calories. He argues that this is actually not a fact at all. He does believe eating later may impact the person’s ability to get a good night’s sleep. Kingsbury argues that as long as a person takes in the amount of food needed for their daily requirements, it does not matter when the meal occurs. Indeed, Kingsbury argues that the actual number of meals is irrelevant. While he personally believes in three meals and a snack, he argues that as long as one has their daily requirements, it does not matter how many meals one has. Even five or six meals work. With regard to the timing of supplements after work outs, Kingsbury believes in a two hour time frame. The exception to this rule is in the event the person is doing an extreme form of endurance training.
