People all over the world love their snacks, lol.

Many humans have forgotten that it's OK to be hungry sometimes. Waiting an hour or two until your next meal, rather than try to sate your hunger with junk, is OK.

Japanese people also love snacks, if not, then why is there a huge snacks section in every conbini or 100円 shop i've been to; the 7-11 even have their own snacks.

Breakfast-lunch for me is 1pm

Rare reason:

Breakfast-lunch for me is 1pm

Dinner 8pm

That's it.

My longest time without ea

Breakfast for me when I wake up.

Lunch when I want it.

Dinner when I want it.

In between whenever I want it, and how much I want.

No early morning or any other runs, no other exercise than the normal things I did before stopping to eat sugar & related garbage.

No calorie counting, no app, no worry about nutritian this and nutritian that. All I did was elimiate the sugar and artificial crap foisted on us by the food industry.

Lost all excessive weight and all little previous health problems.

Just Fwiw. Worth a try?

If it's processed, I won't eat it. Fresh fruits, vegetables, fish and meat are all that pass through my gullet. (Well, those and a lot of beer.)

My daily calorie intake is limited to 1500-2000.

Stop this nonsensical calorie counting. Just eat food instead of processed crap, and you will get healthy. If your natural body condition is a bit on the heavy side, that is no problem as long as you are healthy. We are individuals, not statistics.

Are you drinking juice? Eating white sponge bread? Packaged things like so-called fruit yoghurt? Protein bars? Cereals? In fact anything that comes boxes with funky colours and lasts forever? Then you are eating candy. In that case, stop it.

Zichi:

Well in that case your metabolism must be different from mine. So yeah, maye in your case you need to count calories. Looks like we are all different.
