    Timing of meals

    I'm really not sure I could do this without the daily forum check-ins and support. So, thanks!!

    Timing of meals

    Thanks for your feedback! Yes, one of my long-term (after Whole30) goals is to stop mindless grazing and snacking. So, deliberate, planned out snacks due to need are good when appropriate. Yesterday worked out perfect. Breakfast and Lunch were 4.5 hours apart. At 5:00 I had some of my leftover breakfast items that I cold not finish. I was hungry for my full dinner at 6:45. Went to bed at 11:00 a little hungry but ignored it. Woke ready to eat and ate my entire breakfast for the first time on this journey (I'm on Day 9). It helps not to feel like I'm cheating with a 5:00 snack. Yippee!

    Timing of meals

    Thank you for posting this, BJS12345. This is my exact question. I know this convo was a couple months ago but I didn't want to start a new thread. I'm on Day 8. Feeling good! I am eating breakfast at 7:30 and lunch at about 12:30 or so. Then I eat meal 3 with my family between 6:30 and 7:00 (I get home from work about 5:50). I'm not hungry until around 5:00. I am driving home at 5:00 - I need a quick easy on the go snack. I'm finding it heard to figure out the mini meal template in this case. Plus, I really want to be hungry for dinner (I'm eating my snack about an hour and a half before). After all, I have been putting a lot of time and energy into planning meals! So, I feel I need just a little snack to hold me over. Today I packed a hard boiled egg and some almonds. I hope this is okay for my progress. Anybody else have similar experience?
