I feel as though it is normal to eat a big breakfast, snack throughout the day and eat a big/normal dinner. Or is it better to actually eat lunch? Both options would be healthy food choices but I'm just never hungry for lunch even if I eat a small breakfa

Small frequent meals: In general, the healthiest eating pattern for us is to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day. Eating patterns and needs can be highly variable from person to person depending on their sleep patterns, activity level and metabolism. If you have a normal BMI, feel great throughout the day and no GI issues, your current pattern of eating is right for YOU! ...Read more

I don't east breakfast or lunch because I don't have time, and when I get home to eat dinner I eat half a serving and become full but extremely guilty?

I don't east breakfast or lunch because I don't have time, and when I get home to eat dinner I eat half a serving and become full but extremely guilty?

Eating disorder?: It sounds like eating is a big issue for you, and that you're controlling how much you eat/don't eat. The "extremely guilty" when you do eat is worrisome to me, because food is there to nourish us rather than torment us. Please see a psychiatrist or therapist skilled in eating disorders, so you can get help before this goes further. ...Read more

My 3yr old stopped eating as he normally did. He eats a couple bites of his breakfast he will eat a bit more at lunch but doesn't want dinner.

This is frustrating: But, very normal. If you look at a growth curve for a 3 year old, it really slows down through this period and is most nice able by the eating patterns you describe. If he is not eating a good mix of foods, a multivitamin might be helpful. Most kids do not need them as ensuring a wide variety of fruits, protein, vegetables in creative ways can help. ...Read more

Suggestions regarding best breakfasts for nutrition and to hold a person over for a number of hours until a later lunch?

Healthy fat/protein: Starting your day with cereal, milk, and juice does you no good. The healthy way to eat is to have a breakfast with healthy fats and protein. With those a small amount of complex carbs with a low glycemic index is ok. Eggs are almost the perfect food so a couple of eggs with vegetables and some avocado, cheese, or coconut oil will give you even energy through the day. ...Read more
