Hi guys,

Just wondering what time of day people have meals, due to an enormous different number of reasons. People from different countries usually have quite different eating habits, not only food itself but also mealtimes.
I usually have breakfast at about 7, lunch at 1 and dinner at 7:30.

Snacks welcome anytime.

During the work week, I have a very strict and set schedule. I have a big healthy breakfast around 730am, healthy breakfast at 1230 (lunch) and then dinner, depending if I go to the gym or not, 7 or 9pm.

On the weekends, also depending if I stay our late, drink, etc. it completely varies.

I wish I could eat earlier--growing up we always ate lunch at noon and dinner at 5:30 but now it's generally something like this:

Breakfast: 7AM
Lunch: 1PM
Dinner: 7:30PM

Dinner is far too late as my husband needs to be in bed by 8:30pm but there's just no way to do the days tasks any faster!

No breakfast unless I stay in a B/B, no lunch unless I am with someone else usually ( lunch for me would be about 12.30/1pm then ) and dinner around 7.30 pm at home anything up to midnight when out ( normal time for eating time probably 8.30pm to 9pm).

Coffee at 8 when I get to work
Breakfast around 10ish at my desk
Lunch around 1:30, but if I have class I'll spread it out until 3 (sandwich around 1:30, fruit around 3)
Dinner around 7:30 if I don't have class, if I have class then around 9pm

At home we always ate dinner around 7pm, so it's not a big change for me. In college my friends made me eat at 5:30 with them and it drove me nuts (I was always starving by 10pm)

This pale face eats by need not by the clock. Loving being retired and having no schedule.
