When I was working I couldn't do this on a regular basis but I did when I would go out for lunch with co-workers..have a full meal, then when I got home I didn't have to rush to get dinner and be starving on top of it all....It worked for me before I became "elderly" and it's works now! Hey more hours to work the meal off!
They say that eating your heavy meal earlier is better for you. I make sure my mom has a nicer lunch because come late afternoon, she often refuses to eat much.
