    'Caloric needs'...? Does that mean you had a really, really, really big and/or calorie dense breakfast? Sure, that's fine! You might get hungry later in the day, though...

    As long as you don't get too hungry it doesn't matter when you eat your calories.

    it seems that way. although i might be confused.

    Now you are confusing me X'D How about opening up your diary or posting up some numbers/a description that make you think you have eaten so much?

    You're significantly underweight, right? Stop overthinking it and just eat. If you ate all your calories for breakfast, awesome, just wait until you get hungry and eat some more. One day of eating even more than your planned surplus isn't going to have a significant effect, one way or another.

    One caveat: was it a binge? (As in, completely out-of-control eating). That might be cause for concern.

    This guy has posted like 17 threads about under/over eating in the past week.

    Time to give it a break and see a professional if you really want help, or some need to justify how you're eating.

    I'm curious why too. I eat when I first wake up, and will have a snack around 10am, eat lunch, snack around 230pm, eat dinner around 7pm, and possibly a snack sometime throughout the night.

    I would love to hear your reasoning. Seriously :)

    If you're really trying to gain weight as badly as claimed in other threads, then you need to eat a lot more than you have been.

    Physiologically - it should be ok if you are meeting calorie / nutritional amounts which align with your goals.
    Psychologically - please be wary of unwittingly feeding a binge / restrict cycle.

    I'm pretty sure that it would only matter on a nutritional level.

    Eventual the body will adapt to whatever you throw at it , but the body can only absorb so much at time and no one knows how much it is since everyone is different.

    This is why it's recommend going a little over on macros and micro nutrients to make sure you have it covered. Just because you think you're eating 30 grams of protein doesn't mean you body actual adsorbs 30 grams of protein.

    It would also be relevant to how much the 90 percent of calories is. If an individual only needs 1400 calories per say it might not be a server as someone who needs 4k-6k. That would be too demanding on the digestive system, organs.

    If possible, depending on certain variables it shouldn't effect losing weight or gaining weight, but I've seen strange things.

    If you're under 2k calories I wouldn't worry about it, but once you start going over 2k calories try spacing out meals better to give time for better digestion. There are many studies on people who eat large amounts of foods "fast" that get acid reflex, gerd, fatty liver, so on so forth.

    I also forgot to add when a person goes to sleep wakes up would be another variable.
