I'm such an article geek.
According to this article, not only is it important that you eat well (within your calorie & nutrition range), but also making sure you eat at the right time is important, too. After two plus years of experimenting, I can honestly say this is my exact eating schedule just about every day.
Breakfast: within 1/2 hour of waking, usually by 7AM.
Snack: 10AM, after I walk for 10 minutes (weather permitting)
Lunch: 12PM, usually aim for 30 minutes of walking
Snack: 3PM, again after walking 10 minutes
Dinner: 5:30PM, definitely try to get all my eating done by 6PM
Basically, 12 hours of eating & 12 hours of fasting. Do I have any scientific proof this works? No, but it seems to help me. It sometimes get screwy on weekends, but most weeks this is my schedule (I'm an obvious schedule geek, very OCD.)
