I undertand that my meals on the zone should not be more than 5 hours apart, does that include at night time. I mean should I try and not sleep for more than 5 hours at once so that I eat on this sort of timetable or is it just meant to be for the hours that I'm awake which is what I would imagine.

Maybe I just answered my own question! But any other thoughts would be appreciated.

i'm not that familiar with the zone but i'd be enormously surprised if the diet wanted you to restrict your sleeping so that you literally ate at a minimum every 5 hours. you'd end up a zombie and that can't be good.

Hi there.

You can sleep as long as you like.

A diet should never get in the way of your sleep patterns.

How frequently I eat is every 2-2/12 hours. I don't eat after 6-6:30pm. For breakfast (6-6:30am) I eat 200 calories, for a snack at 9am i eat 200 calories, at 11am i eat 200 calories, for 1pm I eat another 200 calories, at 3pm I eat another 200 calories, at 5 I eat a 500 calorie meal.
