"Make sure you have a large hearty breakfast and then lunch should be enough to power you through the rest of the day, and at dinner have a very light dinner so you can sleep well and be restored for the next day," says dietitian Marisa Moore.
If the evening meal is your biggest, or you skip meals, you are not alone. Skipping meals does not help us lose weight. People who don't eat breakfast, for instance, tend to weigh more than those who do.
"Breakfast helps to kind of rev up the metabolism it helps to jump start your body, so that you can actually burn more calories during the day," says Moore.
It also helps keep our hunger level on an even keel so we don't reach for the junk food. Also, eat a balanced lunch each day. Moore suggests a lean protein, like turkey, whole grains and plenty of fruits and veggies. For dinner, no more royal treatment, keep it simple and light.
"Why not just have a salad with a little bit of beans or some chicken on top," says Moore. "Maybe a glass of milk or some yogurt."
It's best to eat every 4-5 hours, so include healthy snacks to tie you over between meals.
