I read a section called "Eat like the Royals". This really caught my eye because it talked about how the french eat their meals. I loved this little tidbit. It puts your meals in prospective.
* Eat breakfast like a king. Have it be the biggest, richest, and most satisfying meal of the day.
* Eat lunch like a prince. Its' not quite as rich as breakfast, but still fills you up.
* Eat dinner like a peasant. This meal is just as delicious, but with nothing that takes a long time to digest.
In other words, breakfast should always be your biggest meal of the day and dinner your smallest. This gives your body the time it need to efficiently process your meals. It keeps your blood sugar from spiking, which can give you uncontrollable cravings for carbohydrates and sugary snacks. And it gives you all the energy you need to make it through the day.
