    How many times you eat during a normal ... every day life?
    are you the type of person who eats a bit and often?
    or rarely and too much?

    i usually have 3 and i'm the 2nd type of person (though it's not that healthy)

    8 am breakfast

    3pm lunch

    9pm a snack.

    I normally have breakfast about 8 AM, dinner about 1 PM and a light meal about 5 PM. I also snack on fruit, yoghurt and peanuts in between.

    Works for me, although sometimes I feel that I should have a little more energy.

    Welcome to Business Advice Forum logan, thanks for joining. That's a late dinner, not sure that I'd sleep well if I ate dinner that late.

    I normally have three meals a day but I eat tropical fruits in between: papaya, banana, apple guava, pineapple. I'm the junglekid...:)

    I recently gave up one of my best (and long lasting) habits: drinking a bottle of beer every day.:) Traded for water. Ugh!

    I don't see much wrong with that. Sounds pretty healthy to me.

    Did you drink the bottle of beer during the day or in the evening?

    Most often in the evening.

    And then there was this one: "Save water, shower with a friend..."

    :) Very good, you'd probably spend longer in the shower, however.

    I eat a regular breakfast, a big size launch and sometimes a very small supper.

    well, first of all it has to be decided that how will you decide what constitutes the meal.......
    So going by this definition I think sometimes during holiday, I take 5 or 6 from them , otherwise on a working day, I used to take 3 meals and some snacks in between the dinner & lunch...:D

    If it's me, I won't consider snacks as a meal. For myself, I eat 3 meal a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are times though that I miss one of these meals but since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I do my best not to skip or miss it.

    If it's including snacks, then I guess the number would be more than 6 since I always eat when I'm hungry.

    Little and often is a popular wisdom when it comes to eating. I'd like to try that approach myself, but a big dinner is very tempting and it's hard to leave the table when you don't feel full.

    I eat 4 to 5 small meals per day, to regulate my blood sugar.

    I eat 3 times a day. With snacks every afternoon. the heaviest meal is maybe during lunch. I usually eat breakfast at 8am & dinner at 6-7pm.
