Dinner for Breakfast?

15 Dec

I’ve been reading some articles on eating in reverse. Try eating a large dinner type meal in the morning, a smaller lunch and a teeny tiny breakfast type meal — think high-fiber cereal– for dinner.

The idea is you’ll burn it off throughout the day and you’ll be less hungry therefore you’ll lose weight.

Here is an article from the Daily Record (UK) about A-list stars who enjoy the Reverse Diet plan. This article says you no longer need to count calories or feel deprived. You simply need to reverse the order of your meals every day and watch the pounds drop away. They suggest meals of meatloaf or grilled chicken, or eggs with baked beans.

Huff Post has some ideas for turning dinner leftovers into breakfast. Things like taco night into breakfast burritos and pot roast into breakfast hash. This sounds more appealing to me but isn’t the point to eat less for dinner? So where would you get the left over roast?

Livestrong.com explains that “the basic reasoning behind the reverse diet is that you can better burn off the fat, sugars and calories of your biggest meal of the day if you eat that meal in the morning.” The article also notes that there does not appear to be scientific evidence to support weight-loss claims associated with this diet. Furthermore, while some dieters will respond to this approach of emphasize “reasonable portions,”  others may need more structure.

Could you do it?  I don’t know about you but I can do cold pizza for breakfast but I don’t think I could handle meatloaf or salmon first thing.

    Just thinking about eating that much in the morning makes me ill!
    I’m more fond of the Spanish style of eating a reasonable breakfast, a biggish lunch and then light for dinner. Although I’m really a coffee for breakfast kind of girl. 🙂

    The first easy diet swap to make that will actually combine flavor is by using chicken broth whenever you.
    For the liquids, coffee and tea could be
    taken also but also in moderation. When you will get
    the food, most of it goes in the freezer, so make sure you have the capacity.
    Another important diet substitution to create if you.
