So i have been doing the program for 4 weeks now, reallly seeing results as well. Which is great, but there is something I don't quite understand.

5 meals vs 6 meals
So I started BFL last week 2/6/12 and lost about 4 lbs. I started off eating 6 meals a day, but I find it difficult to eat 6 meals everyday. What do you guys think about eating 5 meals a day instead of 6? I have more energy than I have when eating three big meals a day, but I still feel a bit bloated...
