This makes sense to me..

I read this news article this morning and it made sense to me. If I eat a big breakfast I am not really hungry at lunch ...

Eating a big breakfast, heavy in carbs, is the key to keeping slim, according to new research.
A new study found that women who eat half of their daily calories first thing in the morning lose more weight in the long term than those who start the day with a small breakfast.
And they are also less likely to pile the pounds back on.
Dr. Daniela Jakubowicz, from the Hospital de Clinicas in Caracas, Venezuela, who led the study, said: "A very low carbohydrate diet exacerbates the craving for carbohydrates and slows metabolism. After a short period of weight loss, there is a quick return to obesity."
It is thought that eating a meal packed with protein and carbohydrates helps cut cravings for sweet or starchy foods, and boosts the metabolism

I'm all for ANY pointers that tell me I can eat MORE. I'm typically a low-appetite person in the morning and afternoon but then I crave,crave, crave carbs at night. I'm not a morning person so its hard to give myself enough time on workday mornings. But, I'd definately like to work on this and see if it helps with my munchie craving at bedtime.
