I have been struggling to shift a couple of stone for ages. I have been exercising a couple of times a week and leading a much more active life (walking everywhere, getting off the tube to work two stops earlier, taking stairs instead of lifts etc etc). I also started eating sensibly and following the old saying 'breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper'.
I lost 3lbs in 2 months.
Switched it around according to what I actually feel like eating and when. I'm now having:
Breakfast: Homemade fruit smoothie
Lunch: very light - egg salad or half a sandwich and piece of fruit
Dinner: whatever I want - big portion of meat or fish and veg and potatoes or rice, followed by pudding.
I'm sure it is true. However it wouldn't work for me-I can keep going easily until lunch on a bowl of porridge, then a light lunch and a largish evening meal with lots of veg. If I did it the other way I would be miserable in the evening. I think you just have to work out what suits you.
I like to think its bollocks because I just do not want very much to eat at all in the morning. And never before I've been awake for an hour or two. So then I might have a small breakfast at, say, 9am. By 11.30 I'm starving again - whether I've had breakfast or not.
tis bollocks - a calorie is a calorie no matter what time you have it.
I've lost a shedload of weight recently and swear a lot of it is down to having a proteiny breakfast with little or no fat (eggs, sometimes quorn sausages) soup for lunch and a bigger meal in the evening. So more lunch like a pauper, I suppose...
Well done though, sounds like what you're doing is working really well!
