  1. I am a little confused about meal times. If you are supposed to eat within an hour of waking and you wake up at 6:00 hypothetically and eat breakfast by 7:00, then lunch would be 4-5 hours later which brings you to 11:00 or 12:00. Basically that means that dinner ends up being at 4-5:00 assuming you are not snacking to tie you over. This is also assuming you can wait to eat 5 hours between a meal, and I actually get up at 5am which would mean eating M1 by 6! I don't even get home from work until 5:30, and the family usually eats by 6pm. I am trying hard not to snack and am eating sustainable meals. Realistically, though, I can't eat dinner at 4pm! How do other early birds deal with this? I do workout most mornings, and know I can have a pre and post wo "meal", but my workout is only half an hour of strength or interval training and I don't feel it warrants all of those extra calories. Help!

    Timing of meals

    I don't do that kind of snacking. I gave up chips, pretzels, etc. a long long time ago. The only thing I used to do is go crazy on sweets when I went "off the wagon" usually once a week. Of course that hasn't happened during this whole 30. The only time I have a challenge is when I'm getting dinner ready for the family and haven't eaten yet. I tend to "pick" a little to tie me over. Sometimes I just eat my dinner of leftovers or pre-prepared foods right away to satisfy my hunger so I can prepare the family dinner wo grazing. The only problem with that is that I can't eat with them!

    Timing of meals

    My hardest time is between lunch and dinner. I try to wait to eat with the family, but am really hungry enough to eat at 5:00. I guess I'll try to have a mini meal around 3 or 4:00 to hold me off until 6 for dinner. Thanks for your help!
