Should I have dinner?

Ok last week with hormones and all, I've been craving chocolate big time, even so most days I've pretty much stuck to my calorie limit (1400 +exercise cals).. Yesterday I was about 500cals over I think (was a very bad day yesterday :(), the day before about 100 over maybe.

Today though I don't feel like eating really. I've had low fat yog + tsp sugar, apple, clementine for breakfast. Had a caramel shortbread for lunch. Then a snack earlier of a tiny apple and rice cake/houmous/cucumber. All in all it's about 650calories ish.

I have been out rollerblading today about 40mins = 400cals ish so I *should* have 1800cals today.
It's dinner time and I'm debating should I have dinner or not? I don't really feel like eating, maybe it's the warm weather, maybe hormones. Mildly hungry.

Do you think I should just 'bank' the calories so I can have little extras later in the week? Or have something like scrambled eggs & toast? Or just have normal dinner (usually about 400cal max)? I know it's probably not good to have just 650cals in a day?

Or the other option would be to have one of my soups for dinner = about 150cals each.

I just think it's dumb to force myself to eat much when I don't want to. I'm sure there'll be other times in the week when I'd be grateful for the extra 'banked' calories!

If you've overeaten for a couple of days, it wont hurt to have less for one day....but only if you aren't hungry.

Either the soup or the egg on toast are good ideas. Soup is very satisfying as it's blended food which has a higher satiety level. Egg on toast is good because it's protein with carbs :) Whichever you fancy...or not at all :)

If you are going for the 'not at all' approach, keep in mind those two options if you get hungry later on, rather than picking at things.

Yep. The problems can happen when people undereat on a daily basis.

:) Yeah I'm going for the not eating option I think.... turns out the mild hunger I had was only thirst anyway.. Thanks KD!
