If you are trying to lose weight, the timing of your meals could play a very large role. You should focus on never skipping breakfast, and avoiding meals later at night.
Regarding weight loss, when you eat is almost equally important as to what you eat. A study in the International Journal of Obesity found that people who ate the majority of their calories after 3 p.m. lost significantly less weight than those who ate their largest meals earlier in the day. Those who ate later in the day lost weight more slowly, and they were also more insulin resistant — which is a risk factor for diabetes. Also, late eaters were more likely not to eat proper breakfast or skip it altogether.
Skipping meals and going for long periods between eating can alter your appetite and make weight loss more difficult. According to one study, women that skipped meals lost eight fewer pounds than women who did not. If you try to eat your biggest meal of the day earlier, you may be more successful.
