  • Yes I agree.I switched my main meal (dinner) to earlier in the day, about 2, and a lighter meal(lunch) in the evening so I would have longer to 'work it off' and it would not stop me sleeping well. I found that eating a main meal slightly later than lunch makes me eat less in the evening too. But I also agree with Mareannie about those who work late, but it could be worth a try to take in a lunch that is more substantial and just have a lighter supper at home. Not forgetting a snack later if you need it. emoticon - by DOTTYDRUID
  • Good advice but hard to do for us that work Monday - Friday til 6:00PM or later, then have to do errands and commute home! - by MAREANNIE
