Eat More Calories Early In The Day


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I eat most of my calories during the day time and reserve something light for dinner, like soup or a chicken breast and veggies. I work off my calories during the day and tend to sleep better at night when I'm not weighed down.

If I'm not in the mood for dinner, I'll have a light snack like air popped popcorn or sherbet. This way, I'm still getting my calories in without overdoing it.

    Same here :) I'm now at the point where I look forward to getting to bed so I can have a hearty healthy breakfast. About an hour later I then go for my very brisk walk and burn off half or slightly more than half the calories.
CarolJ35, your salad sounds soooo yummy, think that's what I'm having tonight !

    I tend to follow this guideline too and have had success.

    I agree. I lose best when I eat a BIG salad for dinner, complete with several ounces chicken, feta cheese and pecans.
