Tonight, I had that sort of big meal, about 1000 calories. I had a big piece of cheesy calzone. It looked like I could eat as much as I wanted! I ate like those slimmer women that I used to be jealous of!
But...what you also need to know is the context. Prior to dinner, I ate 3 apples and a fun-sized candy bar, approximately 450 calories total for the entire day before supper came. By the time we ate at 5:30 p.m., I was very hungry from not eating much all day long. I probably ate a total of 1600 calories today, which, even with the bigger dinner, is within a good calorie range for me.
We like to imagine that certain slimmer women are gorging themselves with big meals all day long. But a lot of slimmer people I know don't eat much for many hours in a row, and then eat a bigger sized meal. Anyone can fit a bigger meal into their daily diet if they eat very lightly for the rest of the day. I used to eat very lightly until a good sized dinner that during all of my college years, much like I ate today, which worked well for me.
You can eat your daily calories whenever you want, and in small meals or big meals, so long as the calories add up to be in your daily calorie range.
Pretty song I've been listening to a lot lately. The singer is Nick Bufano from Italy, singing a vintage Dean Martin song:
What do *you* think? As always, I like to hear your opinion.
Have a fabulous day!
P.S. I got all 10 leaves possible for the first 2 weeks of the TOPS contest. :-)
