Awhile back I read something online encouraging dieters to eat 60% of their daily calories before 3:00pm. I haven't been able to find anything reputable about it since. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Eat your calories whenever you are hungry... it really doesn't matter what time of day you eat.

That sounds like a tip that will work for some people, but not everyone. If I ate nearly all my calories before 3, I'd be really hungry at night. Calories don't know what time it is, find out what works for you!

I usually shoot for about 30% per meal and 10% for snacks. So 60% by 3PM sounds about right.

I eat whenever I feel like eating...my dinner is usually about 30% of my daily calories and I usually eat dinner around 8:30 - 9:00 PM...I've lost 30 Lbs. Calories in, calories out. Timing has nothing to do with anything.
