I third this suggestion. Ever tried intermittent fasting? There are lots of ways to do it, you tailor it to what works for you. It's NOT starving yourself, it's NOT deprivation, it's simply delayed gratification and working with your cravings/hunger rhythms. There are a few pretty awesome studies on the benefits of it, but studies aside -- if it works, it works
For me, I like/crave three things: the ability to eat larger portions, eating in the evening, and being able to eat what I want within reason.
So, I either fast most of the day OR eat very little portions when hungry, then use the bulk of my calories in the evening. It works on so many levels. It tricks my mind into thinking I can eat whatever I want and still lose weight. It lets me have portions that are more satisfying to me, it lets me go to dinner out etc without stressing that I've "used up" all my calories. It allows me to have ice cream at 9pm without ruining any weight loss or being above my calorie levels.
It's not starvation or deprivation because I'm eating the same amount of calories I would if I'd eaten all throughout the day, just in a shorter window of time.
It has actually helped my weight loss a lot.
Just thought I'd throw that out there.
