We tend to eat later. At least 8:00pm. And most days, during the summer, it's around 9:30 when I get home from paddling practice.

My dinner time depends completely upon my work schedule. For instance, I worked the night shift last night, so today I was eating my dinner when everyone else was having breakfast.

Depend on when my husband comes home. He is self employed and times vary. But we started a ritual of stopping and enjoying dinner every night no matter what time.

Rarely before 7:30

Between 7:30 and 8:30 - sometimes later and rarely earlier - depending on what time my husband gets home from work.

With my husband's weird work schedule, it really depends. If he has early shift, we eat dinner between 5 and 6 p.m.. If he has late shift, and I'm home (like tomorrow), we eat "dinner" around 11:45 a.m..

Since I work nights, I have lunch at about 4pm, and dinner at work at about 1am.
No breakfast really.

Monday through Friday I have to eat when I get home from work, which is around 8:30. Saturday and Sunday I eat around 6. I try not to eat too late, though, so my body has enough time to digest it properly. I've read a lot about how eating too late in the evening is not very good for you.

Anywhere between 630-930! It's always different.

I usually eat around 5:30 pm. I seriously don't know how some people can wait til 7 or 8 pm to eat. My stomach strongly informs me that I must eat!! Then again, it does depend on when people ate lunch. That I usually have at noon.

The only time we eat dinner before 8 pm is if we're going out in the evening, and need to be done early, in which case it depends on when we need to leave. Ordinarily, though, I often don't even start preparation much before 8 and the meal could happen any time from 8 onward.

Usually around 6pm - the teenager starts to hover menacingly if we leave it later than that. When I teach the evening class I don't get home til 9.30 pm so I usually get my evening meal around 9.45.

A few years back, I was a pretty big boy, 220, and the years were piling up, 67, and when I would go deer hunting, I was almost certain I would experience a coronary conclusion before I got to the top of some of the hills.

East Tennessee isn't exactly flatland.

I decided to lose some weight, and I learned quickly that calory count wasn't by any means the whole story, as in bacon and eggs, or sausauge and eggs didn't cause the same weight build-up as did the same calory count of cereal and milk, so you might say I "discovered" the Atkins plan, lots of protien and few carbs.

I further discovered that food consumed early in the day had a chance to "burn off" during the day, and eating late in the day caused the food to "lay heavy" on the stomach and cause weight build-up, so by trial and error, I developed my own weight loss plan that WORKS ! ! !

I eat a heavy breakfast, about a pound of grapes before lunch, which is modest in calories, and low in carbs, and for the supper meal, I eat a LARGE, (maybe a quart) of solid salad, chopped celery, chopped bell peppers, and chopped cumumbers doused liberally with French fat-free dressing, cut 50% with water, and that is it for the day.

I ride the stationary bike a half hour before each meal at moderate speed, and the whole system works for me, 'cause I feel GREAT, and can do more than when I was 50, and I am 72 now.

Back to the topic of the post, DO NOT eat any heavy food late in the day, eat it early, eat deserts before 9:00 in the morning, etc, and the most important thing about it all, is to BE FAITHFUL TO THE PROGRAM ! !

My weight is now 155, and I am hungry all the time, but it is part of the price of feeling good and being healthy.

Do NOT lie to yourself.

Try it, you'll like it ! !

Between 6:30 and 7:30.

We usually have dinner around 5-6. I have two small kids so the need to eat somewhat early. But it also depends on when my husband gets home. He's the one who cooks

I just eat when hungry. If I have people over for dinner it depends on what time they're used to eating. Anytime I make dinner for my Grandparents I have to have it ready at 5PM.

My first meal is sometime between noon and 4, depending on if I'm going to work or getting done with class. My only other meal of the day falls somewhere between 9 and midnight. It depends on what shift I'm working, or if I've gone out shopping.

Mom and I haven't sat down to eat together at home for over 10 years. We'll snack together, but we never eat meals.
