If you want to lose weight, make sure you intake more calories earlier in the day. It's not the time of day that matters (a calorie is a calorie); it's that you're giving yourself a chance to burn it during the day.

If you're eating 1800 calories in a day, divvy it up more or less as breakfast 600, lunch 500, dinner 500 snack 200 calories. Variations will occur naturally, but make an effort to have more in the morning.

    Ah, so true. I eat most of my calories at breakfast and late lunch. Makes dinner simpler. And I sleep better! emoticon
