Took your advice Sonya and it worked great! Thank you for that. I had breakfast much earlier than I usually do (8:30) and reduced my portions a little. Then I had lunch 4 hrs later and was not hungry at all until over 5 hrs later. Also kept my dinner portion much more reasonable. B=boiled egg, sprou...

Does anyone eat a brunch instead of breakfast and lunch? I find I am not hungry at all in the mornings nor do I have the time. Waiting until I'm hungry, which is close to lunchtime, seems to cause a lot less anxiety towards food. I also find that as soon as I start eating, then my mind is constantly...
