Day 56: Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper

I don’t think there is any debating the logic of starting your day with a large meal and having them be progressively smaller throughout the day.  It makes all kind of sense based on our body’s need for fuel throughout the day and less so during the evening when let’s be honest I am mostly horizontal.

Today for breakfast I ate scrambled eggs with cheese and vegetables, potatoes and beans.  I felt good all morning and didn’t start feeling hungry again until 11:30.  My lunch was a sandwich on multigrain bread and for dinner I ate a fruit salad of oranges, strawberries and kiwi.  If I had it, a few cubes of nice cheese would have made the whole thing even more delightful. I completely bypassed the need for any snacks at all today. Keep in mind though it’s currently 4:45pm so I suspect in a couple of hours I will need a tiny smackerel of something to get me through.

I am quite pleased with my food choices and felt good all day however the practicality of starting the day off with a big meal is not optimal.  If I’m going to make any efforts toward having this be my new norm it will require some planning and readjusting of my sleep schedule.  It’s tough really because I love sleeping, but maybe I’d be willing to get up earlier for food.  I also love food. FWP.
