OMG! I eat a lot I guess! Today I had for breakfast a smoothie...veggies, a little fruit (1/2 apple, blueberries, kale, zucchini, spinach, beet, red/orange peppers, forgot the carrot...lol... and 1/2 glass of almond milk in it.) Lunch was a bratwurst (probably terrible stuff, but yum) and sauerkraut, small green salad. Snack time was 1/2 cup or so of pistachios, forgot to have tea. Oh yeah, and a little yogurt. Dinner, 1/2 of a T-bone steak (got out the bbq finally), asparagus, mushrooms, green salad, which had zucchini, cauliflower, tomatoes, onion, red pepper, spinach, lettuce and ranch dressing, sunflower and chia seeds. (well, only the ranch was quite fattening and the steak, oh and the bratwurst...lol) But that's a lot! Now I'm fixin to have some tea.

Well, my dinner tonight consisted of a yogurt cup, a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal, and a string cheese slice. Does that count as a meal? LOL

No, go back and eat your vegetables!

The whole "three meals a day" thing is basically a cultural phenomenon. I remember hearing that there are several cultures that eat only two meals a day. As long as you're getting the nutrients your body needs, I don't see the problem.

I usually only have something light like yogurt, a few biscuits for breakfast..eat a huge lunch then only eat salad/soup for dinner. Have done that for a looong time. Although my metabolism is slow because of it, it's not doing me any harm in the long run.

I only eat one big meal a day, but I snack all day on veggies, organ meats, and so on. Usually very light seafood in the evening. No grains, here. Not much carbs, either. Or dairy. But I feel pretty awesome. Not as sluggish, and definitely sleeping better at night. Only issue is mornings, of course, since my stomach can't handle anything the first hour or two I'm up. After that, I graze all day long. LOL. Bite here, bite there. But I'm always satisfied, weight and energy isn't suffering, and I'm still getting the same amount of calories and food as I would if I were eating it all in 2 or 3 different meals.

As long as you're not starving yourself, I don't see a reason why eating only two meals a day would be bad.
