Missing meals

When them days that dont gone to plan whats best?
Say i miss my lunch by the time i get to eat its tea time so iv effectvly lost a meal.
There fore i have say 500 cals missing from daily intake.
Im cutting so do i just take the extra loss of cals or do i increase cals to reduce the missing meals lost cals?

    Either or, mate.... not going to make much difference either way. If I miss a meal, as it isn't that often I just take it as a missed meal. You can go all night without eating every day so the occasional skipped meal for whatever reason isn't an issue.
     
    It does of course mean you can eat a little extra later if you want to without worrying that you'll destroy you cal intake for the day

    If I miss a feed, I'll usually add extra calories in at a later meal to total up, but it depends how I feel... Sometimes I'll eat the missing food, sometimes I'll just leave it out and keep the deficit. It's no major issue.

    I don't have set meal times so aslong as I hit my daily cal and macro split it has no effect ,and if I'm down on calories I just have a fill in snack eg yesterday I needed carbs and fat so ate cheesy chips before bed

    I always eat the missing protein, but only make up the missing cals if I'm trying to gain, or it's a lifting day.

    Hitting your daily calories/macros is more important than meal timings/frequency In my opinion- just eat more with other meals to make up the difference.
