Some of this divide in this debate is merely over semantics.

My opinion is this...most everyone eats more than 3x a day when you include snacks. If you're going to snack, why not eating something healthy with protein.

I have found that when cutting, more frequent protein and BCAAs are very beneficial. It has been the difference between muscle retention and muscle loss.
^ So true.

I think pepperoni sticks are a very good snack to carry around when you are on a low carb diet.
