We need food during the day. Not at night.
Lets switch to worry about GETTING ENOUGH FOOD at BREAKFAST & before 2pm INSTEAD of worry about getting too much??

When we don't eat a big breakfast, we train our body to think we are in a famine.
It gets very very good at RETAINING fat, for survival.
When we eat a big huge breakfast, it fuels us until our big healthy lunch.
Then for dinner we don't need to OR WANT TO gorge, or to crave cookies, cake, steak & potato, snacks before bed.
We burn fat when we sleep.
But if we eat a huge dinner or snacks before bed, our body spends a lot of time storing fat while we sleep. Since sleeping we don’t need a ton of food (a full belly). We need that DURING the day while we work.
Exercising before the huge breakfast is the best time to burn fat, since we are already in burning fat mode.
So as little as 10 to 15 min light to medium exercise is equal to 25 to 30 min later in the day.
We don’t need to kill ourselves with aerobics to lose or maintain weight.
ANYBODY can easily get fat with todays common diet and stressful lifestyle, but at 70 years old I'm still lean and healthy.

How about how corporations have done this to us?
Corporations produce the same basic poor quality foods, processed foods, Loaded with salt and fat, cakes and cookies with very little nutritional value (white flour, main ingredients SUGAR & FAT, then some spices or blueberries or chocolate to tempt us. And everything including cosmetics filled with supertoxins, which overload the liver with false estrogenetic chemicals )

Yes, and it's also due to us having so little time (commuting, working, rushing around doing things that need doing) that we don't have time to eat a good breakfast, leisurely to properly digest our healthy food choices.
But, we are smarter than that.
We can make those choices.!

Good post. You're actually almost talking Intermittent Fasting with reasonable food choices and the natural restriction in calories caused by eating two larger meals. Agree with processed foods comments too. Smile I like it. I totally agree with the aerobics comment. I read the other day that the average lifetime jogger has a body fat level of 22% with little muscle mass. I prefer lifting, but then I have an ankle I broke so can't deal with impact. Thanks for the post, Bill.

You're welcome & Thanks for your good comments northernmusi...;
and yes I guess it is intermittent Fasting. Breakfast literally means Break Fast. Smile
then to eat a good meal or 2 WHILE we need it. then fasting again.

But, the nice thing is, fasting after lunch does NOT feel any more like fasting than sleeping does.
I'm rarely hungry in the evening, and only eat a snack between 2pm and 7pm, nothing after that. No cravings, no tendency to wander to the refrig or cookie jar... Smile

Aereobics: yes someone posted a good article here a few weeks back about that.
A woman marathon runner found she got fat by running.
Saying she found out that since running burns fat, using the slow twitch muscles, then our body STORES up fat since it's mainly what's needed!
She switched to interval training and using fast twitch muscle groups, got lean and slim again.
Thanks for your support and happy others are helping us understand simple ways to get and stay healthy.

Adding to Food Diary
When you are on "my Food Diary" - the dinner plate icon, look to the far right - about half way down the page for adding "custom foods". BTW - welcome to Fat Secret!

Bottom line is you eat below you Prime # and you will lose weight. You need to know that fatsecret like all the other sites use a static equation. So you have to adjust it yourself (most can't and ...
