Are you my brother? I remember one time when I was about 8 I was made to sit at the table alone for ~1.5 hrs until bedtime to avoid eating my sickening cold peas while the sun went down, the lights were turned off and the dishwasher churned. A few years later she found Lesueur canned peas tiny & thin-skinned and less objectionable, and the only kind she served thereafter since it was easier than monitoring our pea-eating.

Sounds like my mom. Before I moved out I never met a vegetable that wasn't cream-sauced, or a fruit that wasn't in a pie

If a vegetable wasn't boiled to death, it was shredded and encased in Jell-O. I didn't know they were such dangerous creatures!

Haha, your mom and mine were soul sisters when it came to veggies. I always loathed any veggies until I began to cook as an adult and learned there were other ways to prepare them!

Another bump on this thread.

Since starting to experiment with TRE and IF, I've also mostly stopped snacking. In the last few weeks, I've eaten lunch--often a largish lunch because I'm hungry and it's the first meal of the day--and then dinner. Once or twice I've had a snack in the late afternoon (usually some cheese), but I've realized that might be my body telling me I need to eat dinner earlier than was my habit. I've moved up dinner an hour or so and with two large meals a day, I don't really want snacks. I do still have the odd craving now and then, but if I'm not actually hungry, I don't eat.

One thing that's also helped is tracking my calories. I'm not trying to restrict, but I have a good idea of what a reasonable level is for me. If I enter all my food for lunch into my tracking program and it looks a bit low, I'll rummage for something else to round out my lunch to about half of my daily calories. Eating a solid meal like this really keeps me going until dinner, far better than a 350 calorie dry turkey sandwich.
