Adrienne, thanks for your reply.
I have started Ideal Protein diet, which is pretty restricted in carbs, and for the first time in my life, I do not have food cravings.
It's all rather fascinating to see the reactions my body has to various foods now -- now that I'm paying attention.
I'm sure fasting has a way of putting you into ketosis, too. which is apparently what takes away the cravings.

I didn't read the study but read your response Returntothin, and I'm the same, I find I can eat way too much if I start eating early so try not to eat until lunch time most days. I've tried nearly every method of eating and have "maintained" my weight using all of them, I find calorie restriction easier in a shorter window of eating.

I have one child Poppy born 27.11.2009

I'm a faster, but I am working out what works for me, if you're into fasting come and check out my sparkteam "Fasting for fat loss" http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_

Interesting to read part of the article.... but they didn't include me in their research :)

I have finally realized, #1 I am not a morning person, #2 regardless of what I eat (even if it is only eggs, or some other protein), I'm starving with in 2 hours and I eat and eat and eat all day.
If I avoid eating until lunch, then I'm in much better control of my intake the rest of the day.

I've come to the conclusion, my body works, the way it works, and I best listen to it...
So, now I eat a large lunch (lots of veggies) and a mid afternoon snack, a dinner about 7pm and then a snack between 9-11 pm.... So that's "4" "meals" and I feel great. Don't wake up hungry and don't over eat.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

That's kind of an ongoing feud within myself. SparkPeople is very much pro-morning exercise. But once upon a time some nearly 40 years ago, I lost about 30-40 pounds on my own, while in high school. I basically had milk or juice for breakfast, or anything fast I could grab before my classes started (I was a sophomore in school), and then I had to boogie on down the road, about a 3 block walk as the crow flies, more if I had actually stayed on the roads but I usually cut across the football field en route to the high school (little bitty town, okay: K-12 was only about 125 students and my class was the "largest" at like 36 kids.). Then I would drink water all morning anytime my stomach growled between classes. Then at lunch I just ate everything on my tray, unless it was pork. In which case, I'd let the cafeteria workers know I couldn't eat it, or she usually substituted for me anyway or I'd get extra veggies or extra soup if she had it. Then at home, I'd eat "normally" (I was NOT about to announce my intentions to my family that I was actively trying to lose weight. I just had been sick for like two weeks and then when I came out of it, I realized I had lost like 3-4 pounds, and I just on my own started doing the above routine, with what input I could gain from reading the "Prevention" magazines at my grandma's house. This was in the 1970's, after all, in those Luddite Years Before Internet Before SparkPeople.). Then while the family was squabbling about homework or what to watch on TV or whatever, I'd just slip outside and go for a walk. Alone. In the Dark. I was in a small town - I could do that then! Usually I'd walk to the school grounds and walk on the dirt "track" around the football field that we used for our track and field events. Occasionally I would run, but if I thought I could see someone driving by or walking around with their dogs etc, I'd walk. (Didn't want anyone seeing me "run".). Usually I just walked the four laps which supposedly equaled a mile, and walked home, so all told I was walking or running about 30 minutes or so, because of course I was walking the two or three blocks to that end of the football field closest to us (the high school was on the other end, another block or two east of the grade school and junior high school (we didn't have "middle school" back in the day.).

The other thing I did a lot then, if I didn't feel like going back home after dark was swinging on the swing set. Swinging always seemed to be "exercise" and "fun" but I never read anywhere how many calories one could burn swinging. But I had to pump back and forth, to make the swing pendulum effect go "faster" so, in retrospect, I think it would be considered.a type of strength exercise - one would have the resistance of their body weight, moving it horizontally through Earth's gravity field, as well as vertically from the ground as you prepared to launch the swing? Is there any even any scientific research on the exercise benefits of swinging on the swing sets at parks and schools? (Have I even looked). Maybe I should go to the park this spring when it warms up and test out my theory some more. It was a great mental escape. Somewhat meditative. I should copy this and make it my blog for the day, just in case it's another year or month or a few days before anyone comes back into this allegedly "inactive" team....

And strengthens her arms.

Blogged on a study that had me perplexed for a little while. Thoughts on the subject of meal size and time of day?
