period between meals. Fast metabolism and weight raining: from on 2005-01-07

Hi,

I've always ate healthy food but have began making a more conscience decision in terms of (not) combining proteins and starchs.

In my mid 20s, I'm undergoing a weight training program for fitness and to gain muscle mass.

I generally eat a fair bit but the main thing I've noticed after seperating carbs from protein is that I'm quite hungry within an hour of eating any type of meal.

For example, today for breakfast I had 4 bannanas and 4 peaches. An hour later I had 4 pieces of toast with butter. At lunch I had half a chicken and salad, then 2 hours later I was hungry again. And this is where I come unstuck, today I had a baked potato with some cooked vegetables on it... is this bad?

Within an hour or so of the potato I'm hungry again. It feels like it only takes between an hour and 2 hours for my tummy to be empty again. Are there any guidelines for eating more than the three standard meals per day and the ordering of fruits, starches and proteins. Also should I have just one massive meal of protein per day or split in a couple. If in a couple, then when should I time them.

Thanks in advance for you help
