No More Skipping Breakfast
October 30, 2016 11:09am CST
I used to skip breakfast and mostly just eat lunch and dinner. Sometimes, I would even skip lunch and just have dinner. I always make it a point to eat healthy, especially for dinner since I am already home then and I can make or cook our own. But I noticed that there were days that I end up having cravings and snacking on chips and chocolates. It really did not help at all. I decided to do it the other way around. I eat breakfast, usually I get hungry between 8-9 am, so I always have wheat bread in the office and cream cheese or almond butter. Then I eat my packed lunch which is usually last night’s dinner, and I do not eat dinner at all. I just have green tea and a glass of coco-almond milk. There are times that I go to bed hungry but it does not really bother me at all since I am going to sleep anyway – does not really require lots of energy to do that. I cannot exactly say that I have lost weight this way, but this definitely curbed my cravings. I have never reached for chocolates even though I have a bowlful of it right on my desk at work. I also do not feel the need to visit the vending machines which are just a few feet away from our break room. And while I have not actually weighed myself in, I can tell that I do not feel as bloated and my clothes feel a little loose on me now. If these are any indication that I am doing something right, then I will keep at this eating sequence. I do not advise this, however, because I am sure there are healthier ways of eating healthy without skipping any meal or depriving one’s self.

@Raine38 now she can't eat much of everything with taking her medication first. Last time she did, her insides rejected it as she throws up and poop at the same time. you need to fill your stomach at least 3 times a day to keep that stomach from scratching itself.

That's what I heard. And from what I hear, it works for a lot of people. That is why we normally just have a garden salad or a small sandwich for dinner. This weekend is the exception as I grilled some steaks and baked some sweet potatoes and butternut squash.

I know a lot of people who skip breakfast. I'm always starving when I wake up so I have to eat breakfast. Just lately though I've got into the routine of having a normal breakfast, then just a small snack midday and a proper meal at night. I find that the best way to keep my weight under control and I find that I don't actually need to eat very much in the middle of the day.
