Can Eating Earlier in the Day Help You Lose More Weight?

If you’re trying to lose weight, you’re likely not a stranger to thinking about what you eat during the day, but are you thinking about when you eat? A common pitfall during weight loss is to start off the day motivated, thinking that a small breakfast and salad for lunch will put you on the right track. The trouble happens when the hunger pangs start mid-afternoon and then the motivation wanes.
