This is a great question i often wonder the same thing
OH gosh my mum is the same she eats once a day (in fact this was all our problems both my parents do it and i grew up eating once a day too) mum will eat again when she almost passes out.... BUT lately due to her diabetes she's eating more often.
I find that i do get hungry every 5 hours or so.. but because I’m SO used to this feeling don’t get the urge to eat until tea time... this is where i am trying to stop this..
I usually wake up 5am every morning.. by the time i feed my dogs and tend to them a whole hour or so is gone.. then i rush out the door to get to mum's to take her to apts.. so when i get here then i have 2 coffees and that's my brekky... it's about 430 when i feel my guts turning to the point when my head is spinning.. now I’m trying to stop this too and feel it's interesting question when is the right time to eat??
I am trying (well made another goal to only have one serving (small) of anything i eat.. and better eat less portions but more frequently..) in doing this I’m finding that ever 2 to 3 hours i'm feeling a bit hungry and almost dizzy again.
My greatest break is breaking the coffee AND eating.. but I’m getting there!
Is it OK to eat perhaps 6 times a day but in small portions for example
and that's it.. because I’m hypoglycemic i find that if i have a glass of milk?? (not anymore as I’m lactic intolerant) but now i have a bit of fruit i can wake up in the morning.. other wise I’m starving by the time 4am hits, but again settled with a coffee???
