It definitely is about how MUCH you're eating. For example, my boyfriend and I usually plan to go for froyo once/week, sometimes once every other. I just plan for it. Granted, you don't want to fall into the trap where you skimp so much on nutritionally good food that you're completely splurging on crap, but you can make small changes so that a treat fits into your daily allowance, or even lets you go slightly over.

It doesn't matter when you eat. What matters is how much you eat overall. Restrictive eating plans that require eating a certain amount at a certain time really don't give you any added benefit to weight loss.

It also takes more than a single meal or treat to put you over your calories. What matters is that over the course of the week, you end up eating less than you burn. Not how much you eat when.

Eating a certain amount at a certain time might help you fight cravings, but in the end, it's about calories in/calories out!

...sort of..

Due to my hectic schedule lately, I haven't been eating the right portions of breakfast, lunch, and dinner.. Yesterday, I had one banana for breakfast, a 6" buffalo chicken with the honey oat bread, spinach, onions, bell peppers and banana peppers. After work, my sister and I took our niece out for ice cream, if any of you have heard of Fenton's, you've probably heard of their giant sundaes.. I had one, all by myself. Today I weighed myself, and I was at 172, 1.3 pound lighter than yesterday. What gives?
