Day 23: Shaking things up

Doc has told me eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen & diner like a pauper.

Okay, I am trying something the next couple days, and it is going to take some adjusting to. I have heard it a thousand times and I have never really adapted the technique into my real life. I always grew up skipping breakfast, starving at lunch and ravished by dinner stuffing my face with everything in sight. Oh and midnight snack? Sure, why not?

I am prepared to go where I have never gone before. I am going to shake things up. I am going to start eating a dinner-sized breakfast, and a breakfast-sized dinner. I know this is going to be hard for me. But I also know that when you eat a big breakfast it keeps you full way past lunch, actually the whole day. Seriously, so full that you dont need afternoon snacks— especially if your breakfast has a lot of protein.

The trick is not to overeat at dinner. That is going to be the hard part. I am so accustomed to having my biggest meal at night. Plus dinner is a chance for The Fiance and I to spend some time together. So, I really look forward to that meal.

The worst possible outcome is I would have a big breakfast big lunch and then eat a huge dinner. Ultimately gaining weight. I don't know - the whole thing could backfire on me.

I'll keep you posted.
See ya lighter,

Oh, and about yesterday's post - you were right- I have to be patient. (Down to 160.8 this morning). Feeling slightly embarrassed about yesterdays outburst now.

  3. I think that is probably the hardest adjustment to make.

    my SO and I like our biggest meal to be at dinner too, mainly because we eat it together but it's working out ok. sure it took some time and some getting used to, but like everything else... it eventually becomes 2nd nature!

  4. Or eat like the Italians-light breakfast, substantial lunch, nap, walk, light dinner. If only my boss would let me nap at work...
