I'm 25 and most of my friends are a similar age to me. I've found that I don't really know anyone who doesn't have children who eats 3 meals a day. I personally just eat when I'm hungry (though I'm 8 months pregnant with my first so that's more frequent nowadays). What does everyone else do?

2 meals per day here

I stopped eating breakfast when I was about 12yrs old as I just can't stomach it.

3 meals per day plus snacks/ grazing. I am 39 weeks pregnant though! And I have a dd already.

3 a day when working.

On mat leave now so I don't tend to eat first thing but have a snack mid-morning, so still 3 meals really.

At the moment I have a sandwich once a day if I'm lucky that's it lol

I just eat when I'm hungry. I rarely have more than one proper meal (i.e. one requiring cutlery) a day.

3 meals a day plus (maybe) a snacks like fruit/yogurt between lunch and dinner. Most people I know/work with have similar eating habits.

Normally 3 a day when working but now I am on ML I tend to have a quick coffee first thing them have a late breakfast/lunch and early tea

Mug of hot milk later on

Breakfast, lunch and evening meal. I don't snack regularly as it puts me off my food.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sun 16-Feb-14 22:47:15

I eat 3 a day, I thought most people did

Two. Lunch and dinner.

Jolleigh Sun 16-Feb-14 22:48:29

Breakfast is usually the skipped meal for me too Worra. And on the occasions I do eat breakfast, I hardly ever eat lunch hmm I'm just not hungry by then.

trashcanjunkie Sun 16-Feb-14 22:48:49

Three a day and one snack. Boring I know. When I was a teenager I could do one big meal a day - usually cheese and beans with toast or bread blush or if I had a hangover it could be an entire day of grazing from Greggs <ahem>

FanFuckingTastic Sun 16-Feb-14 22:48:52

Usually two to three.

MorrisZapp Sun 16-Feb-14 22:49:05

Most people eat three meals a day plus the odd bit of whatever as well.

harticus Sun 16-Feb-14 22:50:39

3 meals a day.

BerryMojito Sun 16-Feb-14 22:52:18

Am up at 6 and have breakfast then. Lunch around 1 and then home about 6, dinner about 8 once DCs are all home. Not sure I could skip any of those as they are the only times I get to eat.

I don't really see not eating breakfast as skipping a meal though

I just eat when I'm hungry and that's very rarely before 11.30am at the earliest.

17leftfeet Sun 16-Feb-14 22:55:52

I eat breakfast and dinner

I graze during the day but only eat lunch if I'm meeting someone but then I don't bother with dinner

DoJo Sun 16-Feb-14 22:56:57

Often one - I frequently don't get hungry until dinner time, but if I am then I will have a late breakfast and then dinner.

AntiJamDidi Sun 16-Feb-14 22:58:14

3 most days. Sometimes I don't quite have time for breakfast but generally grab some fruit or a cereal bar to eat on the way to work.

BobaFetaCheese Sun 16-Feb-14 22:59:14

One meal, I eat when I'm hungry and I don't really get hungry until midafternoon, when I do eat breakfast, I enjoy it but I've never been able to keep it up for long (ex-eating disorder so never had the best relationship with food).

I'm 26 and only DH and PIL eat breakfast out of most people I know.

Two meals per day - breakfast and lunch. I don't eat after about 1.30 pm until about 07.30 am the following day. That's 17 hours! shock

I cant sleep if eat after that and get terrible acid reflux. I have drinks of course and maybe a biscuit sometimes if I have been doing physical work.

I have 3 meals. Breakfast can be a struggle so if I do skip a meal it is breakfast.
