Some time ago I came up with a new twist on my eating plan. I had not put it into practice, until today.
I can have a Slim Fast shake for breakfast and I usually make it to lunch before I eat again. The problem is that once I start eating at lunch I can't stop. From 12ish-4ish I am hungry hungry hungry. By the time dinner rolls around at 5:30 I'm full or slightly hungry. Hmmm......
The new plan is to eat my largest meal at lunch time. This means making my own meal or eating a plate leftover from dinner the night before. Now I know this is kind of a no brainer. If you are hungrier at lunch eat more, less hungry at dinner eat less. It sounds simple but to actually put it into practice is difficult. I have a family, with children, and we eat family dinners at the table. I am hoping that it won't be a huge deal and they won't really notice that mommy is eating a tiny serving or perhaps a bowl of cereal instead. What really matters about family dinner time is the family part, not the food part.
I started this today. I made turkey meatballs for spaghetti and meatballs later in the week. I had 4 meatballs in a little red sauce for lunch and a plate of raw veggies. Here's hoping it's enough and that this new plan of mine will work.
