Default Spacing Meals/Snacks

How far apart should I plan my meals and snacks? If I go by when I am hungry, I would only eat 1-2 times a day. Please help!

The guidelines is every two - three hours, so your blood sugar won't dropped, and so you won't become more hungry and be ready to eat anything in sight. I follow the food plan : breakfast, 2-3 later snack, lunch, snack, dinner, and snack and I am done for the day!

I eat every 2-3 hours it helps you not overeat and stay in control

this is my general schedule. While its not ideal, it does fit into my schedule day. (I'm a teacher.)

6:30ish - breakfast
10:00 - snack
11:50 - Lunch
2:30 - snack
5:30ish - dinner
8:00 - herbal tea

Thanks, I pretty much have it down now.

8:30 Breakfast
10:30 Snack
1:00 Lunch
3:00 Snack
5:30 Dinner
8:30 Snack/Dessert
11:00 Try to be in bed by this time!

That's a lot of eating but I did pretty good today getting it all in. I think I will have to start going to bed earlier to fit my eating schedule.
