I realized that the biggest benefit of eating small dinners is that I could eventually sleep much better on a hungrier stomach and woke up feeling like a baby - and yes very hungry and ready for breakfast.

The challenge of staying hungrier than you are used to
This was my biggest challenge. To overcome this I imagined a "fitter" me in the future and this seemed to make me feel better. Not only was I eating smaller portions, I also began to eat small dinners. I have to admit that during the first few weeks of this changed eating style, I have woken up several times in the middle of the night - hungry, also a little grumpy. Often a glass of cold water or a little orange (zero calorie) soda helped.
