Sometimes I go all day without eating then binge at night.

You are not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.

I can't get started without breakfast. I usually have cereal or hot oatmeal. If I'm on the road that day I'll have a bagel or granola bar. The only time that I don't eat breakfast is if I'm up really early (say 4-ish).

I try to have a healthy snack mid-morning and mid-afternoon, along with a small lunch and dinner.

My problem is the snacking all day. It's more of an issue during the week. My job is so dull, picking at snacks is something to do and make the time pass--a very dangerous thing! I tend to skip lunch on the weekends--we have earlier dinners since I'm home to cook earlier.

i do the same sometimes. i probably only eat an actual breakfast once a week, but i do pick at the fruit and veggies (and fingertips) that i chop for the birds every morning, and take a swig of oj or chocolate soy milk. my schedule changes so often that i can never get on a routine for more than a few weeks at a time.

I never miss a meal, intentionally. Every once in awhile I will get busy at work and forget to eat lunch on time. I always have breakfast, even if it is just a bowl of cereal. I pack a bunch of things in my lunch that are easy to eat on the go. Then if I get busy and don't have time for lunch, I can grab something and eat on the way to the next job or project or fire that I have to put out.

I'm like a lot of the members here, I fill up on coffee in the morning. Rarely will I actually eat solid food. I usually don't eat lunch until late, like about 4 pm or so, as this is when we get the afternoon meal at work. If I'm working early (like I have to all next week), then I'll eat the 10:45 am meal as well. I'll eat dinner (if anything is left) when I get home, usually between 8 pm and 11 pm, depending on business.

I've been off work the past three weeks, as the country club I work for shuts down in Feb. I've been trying to eat lunch, but I usually don't really get that hungry until later. I've been cooking dinner most nights, and usually don't get dinner done until 7 pm or later. PeppA and her mom are used to eating later, sometimes as late at 10 pm.
