Gain a little weight over the holidays? Want to lose some?

It appears that the science isn't settled on the question of whether it matters when you eat.


I try not to talk about my 'diet' but the first is similar to how I now eat. I generally eat once a day around 7PM. I don't really get hungry during the day any more. I avoid [i.e. eat very occasionally] 'white stuff' [sugar, rice, potatoes, refined flour] and eat as much as I like [including plenty of fats].

I started almost two years ago and lost a pound plus a week, more or less [I only weighed myself once a month or so], for a year. After losing 60 pounds my weight has stabilized at 192 or so for the past year. I put on [estimate] 10 pounds at Thanksgiving with family then lost that before Christmas without doing anything different.

I don't recommend 'diets' for others, but my habits and eating patterns are easy for me to maintain and work for me. I suspect the low glycemic and periodic fasting vectors are why it works for me.

Oh, and my overall health is excellent. I have only rarely eaten breakfast my entire adult life, so maybe that was helping then.

To translate that last one to America, make lunch your biggest meal of the day.
