What Time Do You Eat?

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.)


  1. Now I feel like the rest of my day revolves around my eating and exercising schedule (and of course my teaching schedule). I'm definitely an OCD, schedule geek too :)

  2. Hi Rae Rae! Well, I tend to eat most of my 1600 calories b/t 11:00 and 5:00 p.m. I eat 2 big meals during that time window that feel really good sitting in my tummy. I often skip breakfast, which works well for me since I don't like breakfast. I guess I figured out which hours I enjoy eating the most, and then decided to eat most of my food during my favorite time to eat. Some days, that just doesn't work, but many days it does.

  3. The only part of an eating schedule that I'm really tied to is breakfast. It has to be pretty close to when I wake up or else my appetite is significantly increased for the rest of the day. Plus I'll be in a bad mood.

  4. Wonderful beat ! I wish to apprentice while you
