There use to be a time when I would NEVER eat a BIG breakfast. My belief was, if I ate a BIG breakfast, it would lead me to over for the rest of the day. Thus, I tried to "save" my calories for later in the day when I was the most hungry. Sound familiar to anyone??

I would eat a small breakfast, a medium size lunch and a BIG dinner. Even thought I was not eating a large amount calories during the day (around 1500-1700kcal), I could not lose weight.

What I learned was, the reason I was so HUNGRY later in the day was due to UNDER eating earlier in the day. There is absolutely no point to "save" your calories for later. You need to eat when your body NEEDS the most energy, which for most people, is the morning and midday. As evening approaches and you get ready to relax and go to bed, the last thing your body needs is a HUGE meal, especially if you are looking for weight loss.

Slowly, as I changed my food and the size of my meals, things started to shift. Now, I eat my largest meals at breakfast, lunch and before dinner snack. I save my smallest meal for dinner. I find this keeps my metabolism higher all day, allowing me to eat more and maintain my weight.

*The Basic rule of thumb is to eat the MOST when your body is busy doing stuff. Which means you need to eat more around the times you are working, thinking, moving, exercising and running around. Eat the least when you are chilling, relaxing, and winding down from you day.
