I usually hold back fruit from dinner and have that later. Having it with a glass of milk makes it a really nutritious snack.
i gave up a long time ago trying to eat a big dinner. sometimes i do..mosty i have small portions eat slowly and save some for my last snack, before 7 pm. i NEVER eat after 7.
Would it help to have your smaller meals, then be sure to have something like an apple to take the edge off before dinner, then eat half portions for dinner? You might have to eat more slowly but that's good for all of us!

I eat a very light breakfast and lunch. I get up later because I work 4-12 so evening is my biggest meal and when I am the hungriest. I typically have around 500 calories between breakfast and lunch. I try to keep under 1500 for the day. My dinner is typically 700 calories.
You might eat 1/2 your dinner portion with your husband and then have the rest a couple of hours later.

I EAT 500 CAL PER MEAL WHICH LEAVES 300 TO 500 CAL FOR MY SNACKS AT NIGHT. THIS IS MORE THAN ENOUGH TO KEEP ME SATISFIED FOR MY DAILY CAL COUNT OF 1800 TO 2000 CAL PER DAY.
I COOK HEALTHY MEALS WITH OUT FAT ,SALT, SUGAR .MY HUSBAND ADDS THE FAT, SALT, SUGAR TO HIS FOOD.

I AIM AT EATING AROUND 400 CALORIES A MEALS, EVERY 4 HOURS AND ONE TO 2 SMALL SNACKS IF NEEDED. IT SEEMS TO WORK FOR ME WHEN I STAY CONSISTENT.

I have the same problem at dinner time. A few months back I was very consistent about logging everything I ate on Spark, although I didn't lose weight I learned that I regularly went overboard with the carbs and occasionally with the fats. My fiber and protein was sometimes too low. Since joining the slowest loser I'm trying to make small changes, one of which is to go ahead and have a bigger snack or small meal about 2 hours before dinner, like 1/2 a peanut butter sandwich and a fruit, or a small salad with some cheese or meat. When the family eats dinner, I just have smaller portions. When I finish my meal and find other things to do I don't feel deprived and don't even crave late night snacks. It is a leap of faith though, to think I'll be satisfied with a light dinner, because dinner is usually my really big meal.
For me I try to eat between every 2 to 4 hours up until dinner. At dinner I usually eat my regular meal (generally protein, starch (carb), and veggie or fruit) as an entire meal instead of breaking it up.
Recently started using the SP Diet Plan. While I do not follow it completely I follow the basic concept protein, diary, fruit or veggie, and starch (carb). Also eat 2 snacks instead of their recommended one so I can go 2 to 4 hours between meals.
Hope this helps.
My latest attempt at speeding up my turtle started yesterday. I decided that I would spread my meals into smaller portions throughout the day; thus trying to eat a small amount every 2-3 hours instead of three meals, which is my standard.
Breakfast and lunch were easy - ate the oatmeal - 2 hours later drank the V-8 - 2 1/2 hours later ate the soup etc. . .
The problem came with dinner, usually between 5-6:30 pm, which is our main meal of the day,also usually involving close to half my caloric intake.
I have no idea how to break that up while feeding my hubby, who isn't following my "small meal" plan.
How do you do it?
