I Eat Half My Calories During The Day And Save The Other Half For Dinner


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

It's much easier for me to control what I eat while I'm at work. I bring breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack every day. I try to keep this total amount of food below 750 calories, leaving 750 for dinner and possibly a small dessert. This works for me because then I can eat the same things as my husband and kids (within reason) without going over my daily allowance.

    Yes this is just what I needed. This happened to me yesterday. but I know I will keep it lean during the day and cut down what I can in the evening. Thank you so much for posting.

    I do the exact thing! We are so busy at home and I find it a lot more difficult to count calories so I measure and eat small, healthy meals during the day and leave a little more wiggle room at night!

    No,you are not alone, I do this also. I don't feel like I am on a diet. Just making better choices. My husband loves to cook and I never want to tell him I can't eat what he has worked so hard on because I may go over my calories. :-) emoticon

    This is what I do! I'm glad i'm not alone! I can do great during the day but then i have 4 kids and a husband and by dinner I can blow a whole day in one meal if i'm not careful. I did 500-600 during the day and save the rest, and if i don't eat as much for dinner or have something easy and i don't use them all up then i can have a snac or dessert later,
