The 3 Hour Diet is a simple plan to follow as far as cutting cravings and emotional eating. I've stuck to it for three whole days (and one half). For me the biggest problem has been the amount of time spent thinking about, planning, cooking, and cleaning up from meals. You need to do the footwork first, and then it works. And I feel great. Energy, joy, and happiness are mine, all because I'm eating right and serving my metabolism exactly what it needs when it needs it.

One of the other challenges is eating so much in the morning and not eating what I'm used to at night. I can see the value of flipping it, but for me, it's counter-intuitive. I don't get very hungry before 2 or 3 pm, so I'm eatingwhat feels like a whole lot offood before then. And even though each meal is 400 calories, dinner feels like less. And those hours between lunch and dinner, even with a 100 calorie snack in there, are tough terrain.

And then there's the inconvenience. When I'm teaching, on Monday and Wednesday, I eat at 6:30 am and then not again until 11:30 unless I eat in class. I don't like eating in front of my students. They might think I'm human or somethinghappy But I guess I'll go ahead and do it. I really felt the dip in my blood sugar this morning when that third hour came around and I didn't eat.
