Eating Habits for Oldtimers
When I was growing up the prevailing wisdom was that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. If you're a lumberjack I won't argue that breakfast is a pretty important meal.

However, as I grew older I discovered that I had a pretty good store of energy early in the day, left over from the digestive process of the night before. So, I pretty much skip breakfast, with the exception of some grapes or a couple sections of an orange. My guide for eating lunch is to put it off until around 12 O'clock, depending on how hungry I am. If I'm really hungry, then I eat a moderate lunch... slowly, until my hunger dissapates. Then I push on until 5 O'clock for my main meal of the day. I drag this meal out and avoid "Pigging Out." This is early enough so it will be digested by the time I go to sleep and don't have any acid reflux issues.

When I follow this regime I see the weight melt off. If I eat bacon and eggs for breakfast, A Mac-Double meal for lunch and spaghetti at Olive Garden for dinner then the opposite is the result. So there you have my philosophy on eating.... nutrition is important but too much chow is poison...as you get older your metabolism changes. It's a good idea for an old geezer to change with it.
