Does anyone here actually eat three meals a day?

I have rarely eaten three meals in a day. I don’t think this is actually common practice even if it’s always depicted as such in American culture. I wonder how prevalent this practice is among adults.

I do even on weekends

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

No.  I only remember eating 3 meals a day when I was in school.

Usually, I eat a piece of fruit or some peanut buter toast on low cal bread for breakfast. I do eat more of a lunch and supper though.

My dh doesn't eat lunch every day, sometimes he only eats supper, no breakfast or lunch- he says he doesn't always have time. He is a lot skinnier than me.....

Yes, I do.

 

I eat oatmeal for breakfast and a salad for lunch.  Dinner is usually a protein and lots of vegetables. 

 

I think people that don't eat enough or the right foods have a tendency to gain weight easily.

No.  Most days are a very small healthy "snack"  at lunch then dinner around 8:00 p.m.  Holidays or family events are the only time I usually eat a big lunch and turn around and have a small something at dinner.  Otherwise once a day for me relatively speaking.

Yes, I eat three meals a day. Or more. Most of my meals are smaller ones.

[ Edited ]

I make all attempts to eat three meals a day but have to admit I am not consistent with it. During the summer months I just don't feel like eating soo much food and I opt for a lot of fruits and vegetables between my main meal of the day.

Yes. Our usual routine has only 2 on Sunday, a no cook day.
