I think that probably varies a lot from person to person. I eat every three hours or so, because low blood sugar does bad things to me.

Since the human body was designed as a hunter/gather food should be eating on a somewhat steady stream of about every 4 hrs. The 3 squaremeals a day is often all wrong and to much food at one time to be healthy for the body.

Depends on the total calorie intake of the meal and what your fitness or health objectives are.

I eat every 3 hours, but only because I get hungry every 3 hours. My meals are small enough where I start to get hungry after that much time has passed.
