    in Italy we have a say, "have breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper" and that's what I like to follow when I can. I have a big breakfast, 10 points, then I have 8 points for lunch and the remainder at dinner :). I know it's not exactly a "pauper" dinner having 11 pp, but it works for me, as I only have 30 mins lunch so there's a limit on what I can eat then ;)

    np. I normally don't have inbetweeners because I don't have time for it. I'm a seller so I work with customers and have back-to-back appointments normally, so I can't get anything. But during the week end, or during my day off, I have fruit in between ;) 0 points ;)

    I mostly wing it, my points have never been the same from one day to the next.

    I do plan all my meals a week in advance though, so I have a rough idea of what I will be eating every day, and always keep a few points back for any changes to my plan or emergency munchies.

    I just plan what meals i'll be eating weekly and pick and choose from the list. I dont have a morning snack, but i do have one between lunch and dinner(fruit and/or yoghurt). I personally think its good to have a fruit snack in between meals, then it leaves you with more points for meals.

    I prefer to have a small ish breakfast (porridge on a week day, bacon or sausage on toast at weekend) a middle sized lunch then a bigger evening meal.

    Was never one on old plan for snacking and old habbits die hard so I try to have a biscuit with my morning and afternoon brews in work!
