Been trying to eat on a schedule the last two days. It is working really, really well.
Here is my schedule:
6-7:30am - Water, Water, and more Water
8am - Breakfast (300ish calories)
12pm - Lunch (300ish calories)
3:30pm - Snack (100ish calories)
6pm - Dinner (300ish calories)
Trying to stay within 30 mins of my selected time. I was hungry this morning at 10:30am told myself that lunch was only a little more than an hour away... drank a cup and half of water and was able to forget about being hungry. That is just nuts! Something I would have struggled with before the band.
I have such a past of grazing that this really has put eating in perspective for me. Food = Fuel!
Also, I have really been trying to eat no more than a cup of food per meal... and trying to keep my main meals approximately around 300 calories (give or take).
If I go to bed late I normally have to add a bedtime snack in... but that just feels like wasted calories... solution? Go to bed earlier. LOL!
