I like to balance my meals into about 300 calorie each meal, So if Istart off with a 300 breakfast plus a 300 calorie lunch/ 400 dinner thats about 1000. plus allowing myself about 2-3 150 calorie snacks throughout the day and night. I end up right around 1300-1500 calories a day within eating 5-6 times!
I find that this is especially helpful in the times when I feel that I am hungry during the inbetween times of meals... If I wouldve had a 500 calorie breakfast it wouldve screwed me for the entire day and left myself starving.

Watching your calories in and your calories out and finding the correct balance is the key to successful weight loss.9
Knowing the amount of calories you burn and the amount of calories you eat and doing this correctly allows for weight loss. Too many calories in - you can gain weight not enough calores in - your body goes into starvation mode and doesn't allow you to lose anyweight either.
Eating three balanced small meals a day with 2 snacks helps to control hunger.
Also I try to workout at least 1 hour a day... at least 4 to 5 times a week on the treadmill. It has been difficult to find the time because I am taking care of my husband as he has just suffered 2 strokes & 1 small heart attack.
