I used to do that all the time, not to diet, but because I needed more food and protein in the morning. Now that I've discovered Kashi, a cereal with higher protein, my energy level is much better. When I was growing up, on Sunday evenings, my stepfather cooked the meal and we usually had breakfast, which we, as children loved!

I saw a TV spot about the woman who lost weight eating her dinner at breakfast. I think it was called the "Reverse Diet". They interviewed her husband and he wasn't quite as enthusiastic as she. He said the smell of fish cooking at 6:00 AM was pretty revolting. But, he seemed to love her, and her new figure (she looked great)and was willing to go along with it. They had a couple of kids too, they didn't seem to mind eating dinner at breakfast time. It was actually dinner food she ate in the morning , not a large breakfast. I am not sure I could do this. Has anyone tried it?

Now *this* is food for thought...

Shift work is tough...if you always have the same shift it's fine, but if it changes it can throw you for a loop all kinds of ways. I don't know what's best, food-wise.

But this thread got me thinking about me. I eat a big breakfast (400 calories), a light lunch (300-400 calories), but then a really big dinner (1000 calories). I'm wondering if I shouldn't try to swing that around. I'm at my goal weight but I haven't upped my calorie intake yet, and I'm scared what will happen when I do. But I'm also pretty hungry at night...although that shouldn't be surprising given I don't eat all that much before dinner time.

It makes sense to eat your largest meal in the am since you have'nt eaten for 6 to 8 hrs.

I've heard that it's best to eat like a king for breakfast, like a prince at lunch and a pauper at dinner. The only thing I wonder about is the meal may make me sleepy.

Your body does the total calories taken in but not the times. Saw that in a Spark article. Although they did advise not to eat late at night. My worst time actually.

I would advise to pay attention to how you feel and work from there.

Best wishes

Thanks! Maybe this will even help me lose weight! I know working the evening shift cuts back on snacking at night.

I've heard that it is good to get most of your calories in before noon.

My schedule has been turned upside down these past few months and my eating is all over the place! Starting a new job where I must pack my meal, however my shift can be 4-9, 9-9 or 8-4.
Are there benefits of eating dinner at midday & lunch at 5?
Appreciate any suggestions of how to get back on track.
