I ask this question because I find that the hungriest moments for me are breakfast and dinner time.. the rest of the day I am happy with munching on a little of this and a little of that. The downfall to that is the calories add up before you know it.

Hi, I have found over that last week that I'm hungry between dinner & tea. Reason for that was I was having my dinner round 12 instead of 1 / 1:30. I was finding the 5+ hrs between meals a pain if I had nothing to take my mind off my stomach.

Before bed which is why I leave myself at least 500 calories to eat what I want before hitting the sack. A big bowl of cereal hits the spot. Nomnom.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

My problem times have actually changed. It used to be that I was always starving right before bed and would have a small snack after dinner to deal with it, but now I don't get hungry at all at that time.

Instead, I now find I'm hungriest at about 11am and again at at around 2.30-3pm. I just make sure I have some healthy snacks on hand and work it into my calorie allowance. Simple! Smile

I am actually hungry the very first thing in the morning. I take a pill at 5:30 a.m. that has to be taken on empty stomach. I drink 20 oz of water with the pill, get ready for work and then eat breakfast about 7:30. Often when I am at work around 2-3 p.m. I start looking for a snack. That is where I agree with Sheonamcc. Healthy and accounted for handy food. Now it is usually a Mini Babybel light or string cheese. I keep homemade pita chips, yogurt, hummus & carrots around most of the time. I'm trying to think of some new snacks if anyone has any ideas!

I am hungriest in the morning because that is generally when I have the least amount of protein. After I have lunch I'm not usually VERY hungry the rest of the day.

I'm the hungriest two hours after breakfast and hour before lunch. Basically I have learned to have more protein for breakfast to hold me longer instead of more carbs, more carbs for lunch or dinner.

I am hungriest before dinner - I often go the whole day without eating as i dont have (dont make?) time to stop and eat. Before dinner i am ravenous and reach for simple and quick eats.
I found that a half cup of fruit yoghurt carrie me through.

Mid morning is my hungry time.Between breakfast and lunch I am ravenous. After lunch my body is awake and usually extremely active. If I have a strenuous workout my appetite is dead until dinner. I'm fine with only light snacking.

I am probably hungriest lunch time because I tend to have a light breakfast. I am less hungry though since I started eating smaller portions but more often (5 small meals) because this has allowed my stomach to shrink down to a normal size. At first it was tricky, but once the stomach shrinks I was fine. I also drink loads of water as this is a natural appetite suppressant.

Before bed gets me every time. I don't like to gorge myself or anything, but I just like to feel satisfied and full and when my stomach is growling because I stopped eating after 6 pm (and it's still only 9:30) I usually cave..
