  • Subbing breakfast for a late night meal?

    For some reason i find myself very hungry at night (around 10pm) and have been doing a lot of snacking. I'm thinking of just doing away with breakfast and shifting my eating to 3 meals starting later:
    1st @ 1pm
    2nd @ 5:30
    3rd @ 10pm
    I donít see how this would be bad as Iíve heard the whole skipping breakfast/late night eating is a myth. Thoughts?

    Do what works for you. I definitely find that I like extending my overnight fast and don't eat my first meal until 12pm.

      Do as you please. Everyone is different. Nowadays I am very busy, so I am having two big meals (with 2 snacks) (in a 8 hour window), and I fast for 14-16 hours. I feel great. Other times I have three meals, but I like to extend the natural sleeping fast (making a total of 11-12 hour fast).

      Do what work for you......remember, you DON"T have to eat every 2 hours, and it is find (and natural) to skip meals and do Intermittent Fasting (which has it's benefits).

        Martin over at leangains just did a piece that covers what you are talking about. I usually eat twice a day and I found that a later meal just didn't work well into my schedule. I did go through a phase where I was doing all of my eating in the evening though. Right now, it's basically lunch and dinner and I don't snack.

          Gotta watch those 'little snacks'. They are often bigger than the snacker realizes, and they can tend to come up a bit more often than remembered.

              You have a point. Most people "snacks" are actually "meals"....lol!

              Snack for me are either fruits or nuts (sometimes some squares of 85% dark cocoa bars).
