Eating breakfast or eating before you get hungry doesn’t work, it just piles on useless calories and slows weight loss. Once you start to eat, you are in food mode for the day. Eating makes you hungrier. Always go as long as you can without eating. If you want to lose weight, you’ve got to starve. There’s no other way. If you’re not hungry until 8pm – 8pm is breakfast. Eating before you get hungry does not prevent over-eating later in the day. it piles on useless calories early in the day. Freely feeding on a low carbohydrate diet is also a disaster. The bet is you’ll lose no weight, because your calories will go to stupid way too fast. Atkins and other free-feeding low carb diets do not work. You have to limit calories, if you want to lose weight. You cannot eat as much as you want.
