i'll answer,
eating every 2.5-3 hrs keeps your metabolism going, and also keeps your body from creeping into a catabolic state (starvation mode). starvation mode happens when your meals are spaced too far apart, it also happens during your sleep. when your body enters this state, your metabolism slows, cortisol is produced (stress hormone), and your body begins storing fat. when working out, minimizing this state is key for muscle development.
