    I was wondering if it would be ok to have my breakfast at around lunchtime rather than early morning, or would that affect my losses? Does anyone else not eat until later in the day at all?

    Cheers everyone

    I don't have my first pack until around 2pm/3pm.

    It works for me because evenings are my downfall and I never ate breakfast a great deal anyway.

    However, some people I know would hate not being able to have a pack at lunch time.

    Cheers Jess, evenings are my downfall too. I'm sometimes craving something sweet so my plan is to have porridge breakfast at around 1pm then wait until evening time and have a soup and a bar. Can't wait until I get my next packs from my CDC as I had been limiting myself to three bars a week but I think I'll up it to five.

    Hello love,
    I never used to eat breakfast at all but because i get into work at 730 everyday now im starving by midmorning. Only problem is usually by around 6pm ive had my three meals and when it gets to around 9pm i feel like snacking.
    So now I cut my bars into little peices and eat them in the eve's and I divide my soup into two and make 2 small batches of it one for lunch and one in the eve.(or shake/porrige whichever suits) and I have my tetra for breakfast. But most importantly I drink lots and lots of water usually around 3-4 ltrs as much as I can manage.
    I hope some of these ideas help as doing it this way i've never felt hungry once! xxxx

    Its not a problem when you have your packs at all

    Some mornings I don't have m first pack until 12, usually at weekends, during the week I have first pack at about 6am as thats when I'm up.

    As long as you have your 3/4 a day it doesn't matter.

    I have my first pack at around 11, then in theory 3 and 8 but it doesn't seem to be working out like that..
    Last night I had a choc shake at 4:30 and then a soup at 7, but seemed to be cramming them in then...

    I like to have my last one with OH when he is having his evening meal - it's the middle one that I seem to struggle timing right

    Tonight I have a training course at 7 til 9 so won't have my last shake until 9:30ish

    I find that as long as I have adequate water then it doesn't really matter...

    I have a tetra at work at about 12, then soup when I get in from work at about 5pm and then a shake or bar in the evening about 8pm - works ok for me. Weekends I try to have my first shake as late as possible to make them last the day.

    I sometimes have only a bar in small pieces a cup of green tea (plus lots of water) throughout the day and then will have 2 shakes with 1 scoop of mix a mousse in the evening made into a largeish mousse (and more water). I have wondered if this is OK or should I spread the out more? I've had no stomach problems at all doing it this way

    I have 4 sachets a day, one around 10.30am and the next one at 1pm, then round 5ish, and the last one when i finish work at 10pm so i would assume you can have the sachets anytime of day.

    Just throwing this in to stir it up... People most successful at keeping weight off after a diet usually have breakfast. So maybe it's time to start having a pack around breakfast time... Just a thought.

    I usually have my bar for breakfast between 8-9 and then a tetra for lunch about 1pm and then a shake for dinner around 8pm. In between times I drink loads of water. Just kept the packs to the same times as I would have meals.

    I tend to have my porridge in the evening :) I have shakes etc at all different times of day- just depends how busy I am.
