Yep, I never realized that until I read it here as one of the trivia questions. However, you are right that it is best not to overeat during any meal.

Thank you Penny!

Griz: I had no idea that food was processed the same. That's good to know, though I'll still try to not to gorge myself like I've been doing!

Yeah I've had those nights as well. It's amazing how we plan for something like that and then in turn we feel miserable afterwards. I try to never do that anymore because I hate that feeling anymore.

You mentioned the food sitting in your stomach all night. I read an interesting fact on Spark that explains that your body processes food the exact same way no matter what time it is. You body has no sense of time (night or day). The article debunked the theory that if you eat late at night or right before you go to sleep that the food would not be processed and end up being stored as fat. This is not true. You will probably feel like crap through the night but the food is not instantly stored as fat.

I'm the exact same way with dinner. I used to skip meals so I'd end up pigging out at dinner time and promptly falling asleep afterward, forcing all of the food to sit in my stomach as I slept.

That's great. An excellent idea of requiring water before your coffee and meals. I usually down a lot of water before dinner because that seems to be the meal that I eat the most. It definitely helps me as well.

Keep up the good work and that water will be second nature to you soon.

I'm doing surprisingly well with my daily water intake. I decided to make it so I have to drink 16 oz. before I have a cup of coffee each morning and then, before each meal, I have to drink another 16. So, not only am I getting my water in, but it's filling me up a little before the meal so I don't eat as much. emoticon
