When Should I Eat My Meals Each Day ?

While every day is different and everyone is different, I usually use this simple equation to help people figure out when they should organize their meals. First, I recommend eating breakfast within two hours of waking up. Then I would recommend eating meals about three to four hours spread apart. If you eat breakfast at 9 AM, then I would recommend lunch between 12-1 PM. If you’ve been here a while, you know that I am an advocate of that afternoon snack. The snack should happen about 2 to 3 hours after lunch, and it should hold you for about one to two hours before your next meal.

So with that equation, you’re basically eating 3 to 4 hours apart and slipping in a snack in the afternoon, 2 hours after your lunch and about 1 to 2 hours before your dinner. And then the last rule is to stop eating about two to three hours before you go to sleep. If you’re looking to meet your
