Today - breakfast -2 cups tea, 11's - 3 cups coffee.  I Pilate's class, 30 mins weight training, walked up Monument (311 steps), did 7 miles of walking in total. Thinking about eating something fairly soon - probably grilled lean pork chop, mixed salad, multi-grain yogurt+fresh blueberries, 2 ginger biscuits, 2 squares dark chocolate - I glass fizzy wine (optional).  Fairly typical for mid week. 

Having been a yo yo dieter decided just to exercise as much as I could and eat as little as I was comfortable with - including treats.  Haven't eaten breakfast for over 40 years so feel no need to start.  Only eat at midday when I've running club in the evening (Mon and Weds.)  If doing an ultra or multi day marathons will eat accordingly.  Am now at lower limit of weight of which I feel is right for me - BMI is within acceptable range.  Although I have no hunger problems I don't want to lose any more weight so shall try and add a few more healthy carbs if necessary.

Bear, I couldn't do that. I'd pass out by 11!

I think it's just what your body gets used to.  I hated eating breakfast as a child and was always able to go until lunchtime without feeling the need to eat even though I was quite chubby then (positively skeletal by todays' standards though)!

Unfortunately as a side effect of some prescription medication I'm on I can't eat anything with soy and can't eat grapefruit either. But my typical diet is:

Coffee and pills at 5am before work.
Low fat cereal and lactose free milk with a banana after arrival in the office.
Wholemeal sandwich such as turkey and low fat cheese for lunch with an apple or orange for dessert. And I drink 2  to 3 litres of water during the day.

Evening meal tends to be veg based unless it's a swim training evening in which case it's usually an omelette and toast - can't eat before and don't get home until 21:30.

I eat loads of veg and salad items, grains, pasta, very little meat. Don't drink fizzy drinks but do enjoy a glass or two of wine at the weekend. Or an alcohol-free beer.

My OH loves my veggie lasagne, made with aubergine, red peppers and zucchini, tomato puree, low-fat joghurt, topped with low-fat grated cheese.

Can't remember anything else but I do tend to eat anything that passes me so there may have been other snacks.
Breakfast is usually healthier - muesli and yoghurt and fruit, or large bowl porridge, soy milk, dates and honey...

You're not supposed to give dogs chocolate.
