    Man, I can relate to that!

    I exercise every day:
    • I walk (at least 30 minutes a day).

    • Ride an exercise bike (at least 30 minutes a day).

    • Combine light-weight lifting (20 pounds) with aerobics (including burpees) four times a week (a 90-minute to two-hour workout).
    . . . and still I've got the lean, cut, chiseled physique of Poppin' Fresh.

    My problem is that I eat my biggest meal (dinner) a couple of hours before I go to bed.

    . . . behavior that is the exact opposite of the old maxim "Eat breakfast like a king. Lunch like a prince. And dinner like a pauper."

    I eat breakfast like a pauper. Lunch like King Henry VIII. And dinner like a blue whale.

    Well. I'm glad you find my predicament so amusing.

    All kidding aside ;), I've been trying to lose 20 pounds for the past 20 years.

    I blame my failure on "The Rat Race."

    Going to bed when I'm not tired. Waking up when I am. Not properly eating "three square meals a day." Sitting on my derrière at a computer eight hours (or more) a day . . .

    . . . plays hell with my metabolism.

    If it's any consolation, I've found 20 pounds during the last 20 years (and I'm not talking British Sterling).o_O

    I have the same issue with which meal is the heaviest! Someone suggested small snacks in between but to no avail :p Dinner time is just when we're most awake and can relax and enjoy it I think.

    That's definitely true in my case.

    In the evening, after a hard day at the office, slaving on a computer keyboard, I enjoy eating a hearty dinner while watching a good movie (or bad movie even).

    As I get older, my overall appetite has changed. I'm just not that hungry in the morning. I eat piece of fruit, and I'm full. Furthermore, I don't see the benefit of eating breakfast "like a king" before I sit at a computer for eight hours. I mean, it's not like I'm working in a coal mine or plowing the back 40 and burning off the calories. I'm a "desk jockey."
