I have a friend that has lived like that for years and she always look great and it doesn't seem to bother her that she doesn't have much to eat at night.

I'm not usually hungry in the mornings and eat only a piece of fruit and a glass of milk so I don't think this method would work for me. I have heard the term though and it sounds good on paper.

If i have a large breakfast (Sundays we usually have a big brunch instead of having breakfast and lunch), I don't eat much the rest of the day.

So it's not my plan, but I don't worry about how calories are distributed and make adjustments to fit my lifestyle.

I'm not hungry in the mornings so I sorta force myself to eat breakfast. I have tried to eat a huge breakfast tho and I find I get too hungry later in the day. I

So I eat about 300 calories for breakfast, 400 for lunch and 600 for dinner. I'm never hungry at night when I eat a good dinner which has helped me stop noshing after 8:00PM.

I really enjoy a good breakfast. It seems to keep me centered for the rest of the day and I
do not overeat.

I am transforming.

I don't actively follow this method, but on the days when I eat a larger than average breakfast I do admit I tend to eat less the rest of the day. I'm not feeling as hungry come lunch and then I eat a late light dinner. I won't say I eat less overall during my meals but I'm far less inclined to want snacks between meals.
(which if I've planned for them are fine but if not then there's the cookies and candy bars at work that start looking pretty good around 2 o'clock...)

I can't eat that much food in the morning, I'd get sick. I prefer to skip breakfast most days, eat a moderately sized lunch and then eat the bulk of my calories at dinner. I will even occasionally skip lunch. I guess I'm following the opposite diet of your friend emoticon

You'll never regret the workout you do, only the one you don't.

I would kinda say it also depends on how early you get up, how early you go to bed, when you find yourself to be most hungry, etc.

If you're active during the day but not so much at night then calories earlier in the day will keep you going; if someone wakes up late and is sedentary in the morning but active at night they might want more calories later on. Each person just kinda has to see what works for them I think. The most important thing is the total calorie count! :)

This would strictly be a personal choice in calorie distribution.
It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with a "better" method of weight loss.

A friend of mine is beginning a diet based on the phrase "Breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dinner like a pauper." He plans to get 1/2 his daily calories at breakfast. I was just wondering if any have tried this or are using this method.

People!
