I've never discussed this openly before, so...
I have certain food...um..."tendencies" at specific times of the day. Specifically, I find at night a fruit salad and oatmeal is really the only thing that appeases me. A large main evening meal incites some MAJOR bingeing...like I can't seem to find what my body craves. But I've learnt that by having my main meal at lunch and sticking to the oatmeal/fruit combo at night my body functions SO much better. No insatiable appetite.
Then I thought, "Well, I'm not really varying my diet by eating the same night meal..." and then I realised that, in essence, all I'm doing is REARRANGING my meal plan; shifting what is traditionally considered breakfast to a later time. Furthermore, this plan seems to mirror my energy requirements throughout the day. Why stuff yourself at night if you're only going to sleep it off? It makes much more sense - to me, anyway - to refuel at breakfast, in preparation for the day ahead.
I feel my body instinctively knows what's best, and I shouldn't try to counter my needs just to appease the crowds, you know? I'm wondering whether anyone here has what some would consider *unsual* eating habits, and how you deal with other people's opinions/criticisms? Do you value public opinion that much? Does it MATTER to you?
