I learned that if I eat a late lunch (around 1or 1:30) and have dinner no later than 6, I am much better off the next day. My appetite decrease and also I don't feel bloated. It works for me and I hope it works for you!
I drink a great apple cinnamon chamomile tea before bedtime with a bit of splenda. Smells and taste delicious.

I read this some where--maybe in SP articles a day or two ago that when you eat at the SAME TIMES each day it helps to stabilize your weight loss. Just like weighing yourself the same way-dressed or not, EACH TIME, CONSISTENCY seems to be the KEY YET AGAIN!!!! I notice that I ALWAYS NEED A SNACK..
or some small SNACKS @ 3 or 3:30 pm to hold me til dinner. I always eat an EARLY lunch [11:15] and an early dinner [4:30 or 5:00] due to different influences-- after school snacking , on an early lunch schedule as a teacher for YEARS, etc. So, for me, staying on schedule to eat my meals has helped!
Linner! My secret weapon for staying within my calorie range.
You've heard of brunch, why not linner? When I'm hungry for a nice steak or other higher calorie restaurant meal, I make room for it on my nutrition tracker by eating a late lunch/early dinner. I eat a light snack at lunchtime and another in the evening and have one larger mid afternoon meal.
