How many times a day do you eat?

ToyGurl ToyGurl
Some people eat breakfast only. Some people eat lunch only. Some people eat dinner only. Some people eat two times a day. Some people eat three times a day. Others eat up to 5 times a day. What about you?

My doctor told me recently it's best to eat small snacks throughout the day (healthy) rather than actual meals at the table. So I was just curious.

Due to my medications, I'm required to eat at least 2 full on, fairly heavy meals, that is, breakfast and dinner, and I'll eat something lighter in between.

My meds have really decreased my appetite, so I don't snack as much as I used to, which is a good thing. I used to be a "grazer." Now, I don't really snack at all. If I eat too early in the evening, I might eat something before I take my night pills.

Most days I do like what your doc told you....But mainly I do a portion size thing....4-5 meals and snacks but all in smaller portions.

I'm terrible at remembering to eat, I just get so caught up in other things. I prefer to just eat when I'm actually hungry, rather than trying to make my body follow a set schedule.

I typically only eat once a day. I eat once a day for a few reasons combined. During the week (M-F) I work and don't really have time to eat if I want to get out on time because we don't have a set lunch break, we eat at our desks and I have to do paperwork refilling prescriptions and such. So, no time there usually. I'd love to just get out on time or close to it, instead! Also, I take something for my ADHD (Adderall) and this prevents me from feeling hungry. I only have to take it during the week when I work. So with those two things, usually during the week I eat in the evening, a large dinner, after I'm out of work and the medication has worn off!

On the weekends, though, sometimes I'll eat twice (we sleep in so breakfast is out!) and snack too. I do eat larger portions, so no wasting away here

I don't eat as much as I should probably. I try to eat when I'm hungry, and stop eating when I'm not hungry anymore. I eat more when my husband is around because over the years and having various odd jobs and what not where I couldn't go eat when I got hungry and just waiting, I got used to putting off eating until I had more time, and a lot of times now that just ends up being an "oops, I left my night job and realized that I hadn't actually eaten all day" most of the time.

I eat the standard 3 meals a day plus 4 snacks throughout the day when I'm exercising. The snacks are often a protein/calorie shake. Currently I'm consuming a lot less because injuries have decreased my activity level significantly. So in total 7 total in a day is typical for me.

I only eat when I'm hungry, but I have wacky blood sugar so I eat between 4 and 6 times a day. Usually small meals or snacks, perhaps eating dinner with my husband in the evening.

I never eat if I'm not hungry, even if it's "meal time." My husband doesn't understand this, as he was raised as a member of the "Clean Plate Club" although lately seems to be decreasing his food intake if he isn't hungry. He's very wirey and is one of those people who could eat 5000 calories a day and not gain an ounce. He weighs what he did in High School.

I graze throughout the day so maybe 4-8 times depending on the day, maybe more. Just little snacks here and there like a Special K bar or a sweet or whatever. I eat either when I'm hungry or if I'm bored. If I eat more than a small plate full I usually feel sick and can't eat for half a day.

I'm a terribly picky eater and I prefer really small meals over large ones. So, I'll snack anywhere between 4-6 times a day. Right now, I'm eating grapes. Later in the day, I might sautee a chicken breast cutlet and eat just that or have a small bbq sandwich. But, I really don't like to stuff myself with food.

I snack or eat small portions of meals about 4 times a day. I'm pretty proud of myself, actually, because not only has my caloric intake come down but the quality of what I'm eating has gone up. But I have to admit that I get kinda tired and lazy of eating...

2, sometimes 3 meals a day, I'm not big on breakfast. And snacking through out the day.

My goal is at least three. Lately I haven't been feeling up to cooking, so it's been 2. Right now it's 3 in the afternoon and I've had a small order of fries, so... yeah, could probably be doing better.

The medications that I am on have pretty much make it impossible to rely on my body to know when I am hungry. I tend to eat 2 meals a day and my occasionally snack from time to time during the day depending on social situations.

Since my gastric bypass on March 26, 2011 my surgeon said that it was best to eat 3 meals and two snacks (healthy ones that are in high in protein). So I usually eat just 5 small meals. Since I have trouble coming up with snacks. I have lost 117 pounds since my surgery.

I eat whenever I'm hungry, or whenever my schedule allows. Usually I end up eating 3 or 4 times a day.

I pretty much just eat a little bit whenever I'm hungry, and only to the point of satisfaction. Feeling bloated is miserable, and makes me ungrateful for what I had eaten.

I am hypoglycemic and am supposed to eat 6 small snacks daily, but at best can manage two meals. I do eat something small when I start to feel goofy or dizzy. Otherwise I pass out or get completely out of it mentally.

Depends on the day. Sometimes I'll snack and have small meals. Sometimes I'll eat one meal in the evening and that's it.

I don't feel like I eat much. I eat little snacks here and there during the day. I'm ALWAYS hungry when I'm bored. I usually cook around 3-4AM because I can't sleep.

It totally depends on the day. Sometimes it's two meals, other times, it's non stop small munching. Just depends.

Usually one meal in the middle of the day. I never eat breakfast and most of the time I skip dinner for a lite snack.
