Just wondering do you eat 3 meals a day or just eat when you are hungry? I know they say we should eat proper meals, but I just eat when I feel like it. How about you guys?

When I was working I didn't eat three meals a day. I pretty much ate breakfast and snacked the rest of the time. Now that I am home all the time, it seems easier to eat three meals a day.

I eat when I'm hungry but that generally turns out at 3 meals plus snacks lol. But then I have got ridiculously little will power...

Well because im home with my children all day and they need three healthy meals a day I tend to eat with them so each much better than I ever did before I had them lol. I tend to have set meal times for them to establish a loose routine throughout the day although they do have a snack in the afternoon fruit or something which I dont normally have im fine with my three meals

I eat when i'm hungry. I always insist that my kids get three meals a day. But when it comes to me i find that sometimes i go a whole day with only breakfast.

I do eat three meals a day. It is conditioned in me. If it gets to be around a certain time of day I get hungery, because my body is used to eating at that time.

Most of the time I do. I have skipped the occasional breakfast though.

I try to eat three meals a day. Lunch at work usually ends up being several "snacks" as my lunch gets interrupted and i get back to it half hour or so later.

No I don't. I never eat breakfast, except for a cup of coffee. Lunch, I normally do eat. I take my break at work and go out into the mall to buy something and as for dinner, by the time I get home, usually everyone else has eaten, so its kind of go for your own, if I feel like eating at all.

I eat when I feel like it also. We cannot afford to eat three solid meals per day and it does not work in our daily life shcedule either. We eat one good meal per day in my household but we always snack around on something in the meantime. We may grab a sandwich and chips or some kind of snack food to hold us over. We don't have the time to cook three times per day either.

Unfortunately I never was a scheduled eater. I would always eat when I felt like it and I never felt like eating breakfast but I was a big snacker at night.

Seldom do I eat three meals a day. I have actually read or heard somewhere that the best way is to eat about six small meals as opposed to 3 larger ones. It is supposed to be better on your digestive system.

I pretty much eat several small meals throughout the day. I have to eat regularly or I start to get dizzy and can't function. If I go too long, I get headaches. So, I break up my food throughout the day. But, I don't overeat, I have a certain number of each food category that I try to eat everyday. And, once in a while, I don't eat all of it.
