Dinner is sometimes more like just a snack

I hardly ever skip dinner. Maybe if I'm sick. But most days, I'm starving by the time I get home from work that following changing into comfy clothes, the next immediate activity has to be dinner.

And not just a light supper. I need food.

So, I eat the food. Then five minutes later, I'm hungry again. Not because I'm not eating enough for dinner. But sometimes I think my body thinks that dinner was just a snack.

So I usually have an after dinner snack, after dinner. But sometimes I look forward to the snack more than my actual dinner.

In fact, sometimes I create my dinner selection in order to make sure it doesn't interfere with what I'm planning to eat after dinner.

So is dinner the snack? Or is the snack still the snack.

I really don't know. But I'm definitely hungry. And I already had dinner.

this little rant made me laugh. I'm only like this when I eat lean chicken breasts, fish, and salads. Give me big potatoes, big gravy, big homemade bread, big rich chunk of beef or pork, and I'm good to go --- until about noon on the following day.

ehhh - cholesterol charged. But I trust my body more than my doctor, and that is what my body wants. Surprisingly, same body, doesn't slap it all into increased poundage.
