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
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! :)
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.
I am retired ~ I no longer have an excuse to not take care of myself.
