Eat No More Than 500 Calories For Dinner



No matter how many calories I have had during the day, I cap dinner at 500 calories. This really motivates me to each more through out the day and or binging helps me to avoid "hoarding" calories or justifying overeating at night!

  • This looks like something that I need to start doing... hmm... Thanks for the tip! - by NEEDSTODANCE
  • this IS a good idea.... I think that I have a habit of eating, recording and kind of watching to "see what is left".... UNLESS I have plans to go somewhere in the evening and calories could be a problem. I LIKE this idea! emoticon - by LNKSMOM
  • This is a great rule. And dinner is always my downfall. I can eat really well the rest of teh day but dinner comes and I over do it. What I know is I tend to fail when my goals are too hard... and my goal is making dinner a 400 calorie meal. I can keep my goal but put a cap rule on too. - by JUSTYNA7
