Thumbs up Big Breakfast VS Consistency

Is it better to eat regularly, consuming a consistent amount of food during breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks...or eat a big breakfast, eat a smaller lunch, and eat little or no dinner (no snacks )? Or what else is a better plan?

How long is a piece of string you ask? :-)

A lot of it has to depend on your lifestyle. For example, if you train after work, then not replenishing the carbs from that workout is a mistake. If you are an office worker wanting to lose weight on the other hand having more protein and less carbs at dinner is a good idea - so long as you don't eat late enough that the meal keeps you awake.

I just prefer the little and often approach. I eat about every three hours - even if its just a banana. Keep your metabolism ticking over.

Many sportspeople that train in the morning will eat a large high carb brekkie, a lunch that is about even in a higher protein tea.

Just my $0.02.

As a runner, I run before breakfast to burn more fat.

Do any amount of reading . . . talk to any amount of people . . . you will have all sorts of different answers. So what do you do?

What fits your lifestyle? And more importantly, what makes you feel better?

How true...I think everyone will have different responses to this posting!
As for me, I tend to eat a medium breakfast, usually 1/2 cup of a high fiber cereal with 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 cup blueberries or other fruit. For lunch, I try to eat from all foodgroups, but stay on the lower side for carbs. Dinner is usually a piece of fish or chicken, 2 veggies, a dairy product and a starch. In between meals, I usually munch on carrots or an apple. I also try to have 2 extra servings of fat per day (good fat, like unprocessed peanut butter or olive oil).

I think whatever the plan, the key thing is exercise.
