Have coffee for breakfast, sometimes add a bagel. If I'm working I eat something small for lunch(weekends I usually skip lunch) have a meal for dinner. If there is snack food in the house I will have a snack before bed.

I eat something light about 7am - usually a piece of fruit and some type of carb, like rice cakes and lo fat cream cheese.

Lunch is usually yogurt and a nugo bar or some other protein bar I may eat a sandwich on whole wheat bread with either turkey or ham.

dinner is usually leftover from the weekend or canned soup and a pretzel.

I often crave something sweet about 7pm.. which is two hours prior to bed time. I'm up at 4:15am and usually to bed by 9pm.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I usually just have coffee for breakfast. I very seldom eat lunch but I will snack during the day. I'll have cheese and crackers, fruit or raw veggies. I do eat a good dinner. Night time is bad for me, I snack on things like chips, pretzels, etc. I crave the salty things. I have to have my Pepsi also. I'm usually up all night and only get about 2-3 hours of sleep so there's alot of snacking!

Breakfast, lunch, snack, supper, snack. Same thing as Dave, being diabetic I make the meals smaller and add the snacks in between the meals. Less food divided into more meals helps control the blood sugar.

Usually a nutrient shake or Granola bar in the AM, maybe a sugar free energy drink, once in a blue moon, a light lunch. For dinner try to eat something substantial but healthy!! And I always (well almost always) try to keep up with my vitamins/supplements

And never, never, not ever (since Winter 2001) fast food of any kind!!

I almost always have a cup of coffee in the morning sometimes with toast sometimes without. Lunch depends on when I get up and have the coffee. I try to eat around 2pm on days I have class since I'm gone at suppertime. Those days I snack during breaks from class. On days I'm fixing dinner, I'll snack thru the day and fix a big meal for dinner around 7pm. Glass of milk before bed tops off the day.

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!
