Going to two meals a day?

Am I crazy?

Will I be OK?

I've been Paleo since last September.

I'm going to two meals a day to not only save money on an otherwise expensive diet but to sleep better at night. I find that being on an empty stomach helps me to sleep much better than when I consume a meal even a few hours prior, even a small one.

Thoughts/comments? Thanks.

I do two meals a day with bulletproof coffee for breakfast. It works well for me! Best of luck!

I also find that two meals a day works really well for me. And, if it turns out you don't like how you feel eating that way, you can always change it, there's nothing set in stone. Good luck!

I do two meals as well. I work on a tugboat so my schedule is two 6 hour shifts so I try to eat in the beginning of each shift. Its makes me very regimented. It has worked for me. I still throw in a 24hr fast during the week to make myself feel good.

i also do 2 meals a day and love eating this way. it's so convenient for me to have a certain window of eating and just stick to it. i leave about 3-4 hours before i go to bed for my last meal.

No, you must eat every 2-3 hours otherwise your metabolism will freak out and slow down.

I'm just kidding--Yes, two meals a day is great. It's what I do. It's quite convenient. You'd most likely be Intermittent Fasting.
