    I gained five pounds due to the sequester, even though I did take my walks several times a week. So I reduced my calories by eliminating the hash browns at breakfast, and only ate a half a donut to start my day. It took only a week to lose a full pound. As well I suffered no hunger pangs or energy loss.

    Of course what this means is that you can actually lose weight by eating less. Who knew? :)

    Yes. I used to not eat breakfast at all but found out the older I get the more calorie starved I feel way before lunchtime I feel hungry and feel my energy level dropping. I usually have a donut hole or small donut and a gulp of orange juice in the morning for 2 reasons... it helps me not want to eat a bigger lunch and also I don't feel drained and hungry way before lunchtime. I typically eat a smaller lunch than I used to also. I used to laugh at my dad for ordering a kids meal at lunch as I usually had a large burger and fries and large soft drink and now I'm about the same place when I'm out and about at lunch I typically buy the $1 burger and small fries etc (I like BK onion rings better). I also find eating dinner early helps with the weight some and snacking a little in the evening can either help or hurt a diet depending on how much dinner you ate. I love hash browns and sausage but both have a lot of fat which I think fatty oily foods encourage weight gain more as they are harder to turn to calories I think often they end up turned into fat on your body when you have enough carbs to power you.

    I forgot to say another thing.... eating when I get up sometimes helps me clean my system out early in the morning before I go to work instead of having to stop at work and clear myself out and when working construction that isn't always fun to do.

    heh heh. I guess that would work. While I've gained about 1 pound, I meant to be losing about 4 near term. (and then another 5 in time later too) So maybe I should put your handy tip to use. Here's a problem -- we've used the free time to cook some really great tasting food, which has made it a bit harder to eat less. Maybe I should try that thing about eating a smaller meal for supper, and nothing after. I know it's only hard about 2 or 3 days.

    Small tweaks of each meal can work. It's hard when several people and a table full of food are involved.

    I used to buy frozen pizzas and cook them and eat the whole pizza for dinner. I've found that sometimes cooking things that are good for leftovers can help in a diet as you can put back some in the fridge for later either a leftover dinner or if a lot less... leftover lunch.

    Maybe so..... but if you eat the right foods and regularly it helps your overall digestion which at times can actually have you losing weight that can build up by a sluggish digestive system.
