Bob Greene's Dieting Secrets
Start eating three meals and one snack daily.
Plan to get 25 to 30 percent of your total calories from each meal, with the rest from your snack. And don't forget breakfast! It gives your metabolism a jolt and will keep you satisfied until lunch. If you wake up without an appetite, give it an hour to develop. If you're still not hungry, eat anyway.
Eating bigger breakfasts and smaller dinners can help boost your metabolism. Bob says eating the majority of your calories at one meal causes your body to store fat.
