Follow these basic guidelines to re-arrange your calorie distribution during the day.
First, plan your meals to be about equal calories for each meal: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Second, don’t skip meals. Try to eat each meal at the same time every day.
Third, change your focus on the evening meal being the largest. Eat early (6 to 7 pm) and eat fewer calories than you were accustomed to eating in the past.
Fourth, be careful of what you eat for dinner. You might wear it tomorrow… around your waist! Heavy evening meals are not digested well, especially if eaten late. And that can interfere with restful sleep!
