    Can I make a suggestion? I think you'll like the results. Flip flop your lunch and dinner meals. Eat your biggest meal during the busiest part of your day when you are most active and burning the most calories. Then your light meal (protein bar) for dinner.

  2. I was gonna suggest the same thing. But opted not to because whatever he is doing is working, and didn’t want to rock the boat and perhaps throw him off his routine.

    At the end of the day, what ultimately matters is the equation of calories in vs calories out in a 24hr period.

    But I would prefer to take in more calories when I am busy and want the energy, and have less calories sitting on my stomach when I’m just sitting/laying around.

    So yeah, if it was me I would do the opposite. Breakfast is always my biggest meal of the day.

    Broome and not rocking the boat does not compute.

    I have not read this, but I wanted to add, I have not tried this weight loss option.

    Thanks man! I'm definitely working on it and that is where the tool of the semaglutide works best. We ate dinner with the neighbors tonight and I came home wanting something sweet. Mother-in-Law brought homemade choc. chip cookies over this week. Normally, I'd crush them all with some milk. I ate 1 and a half and I'm like....YUCK...that's it.

    I did consider that and discussed with the wife, but dinner time is solid family time for us and the family, so I didn't want to be odd and just eat a protein bar. Plus, it's hard for the wife to cook for essentially just her and the girls without me too. So....the HCP overseeing the injections basically said what GG said....I would potentially see some added benefit from switching but it is about total cal. intake. I have reduced my intake at dinner. Smaller portions except on protein, no seconds, etc.

    I'm down 24# since starting and I've lost track of the inches off my waist. I have not introduced work outs or exercise into my daily routine. I have changed my diet some to cut out most carbs/candy/sweets/booze. I just physically can't eat as much.

    I am using one of my customers for the medicine. They have it compounded at a pharmacy and draw up doses for patients every month. Same exact medicine, but without the hassle of the national shortages etc. Insurance isn't involved as they'd deny it anyway. There aren't anymore copay or discount codes for the actual medicine; most of what you're seeing is probably a compounded med.

    The average around me is about $500 per month. I am paying cost since I help them out when buying from me.

    My wife and I did Optavia for weight loss. Our coach is Tony Meiring's sister. Combined, we lost over 100 lbs in 10 months and kept it off. It was a bit more sensible and sustainable method for losing that work for us. I am down from 270 last Memorial Day to hitting 212 in early December and holding since then.
