Eating without a stomach: A daily schedule

Beth Lambert’s daily eating schedule during the school year (she teaches at Grafton High School).

5 a.m.

Stop at Dunkin’ Donuts and get two cheese wraps and an extra-large coffee. “The wraps are good because they are thin, in a tortilla with a little cheese, unlike bread that is thicker.” It takes 10 minutes to eat them. Coffee lasts until 11 a.m.

Have a piece of fruit or a package of peanut butter crackers.

11:45 a.m.

Buy lunch at the school cafeteria salad bar, and eat in the classroom so “I can better concentrate on how much I am eating and how quickly. While eating with others, it is easy to lose track of how much and how quickly I consume something.”

2 p.m.

Eat a small apple and orange from the salad bar.

Late afternoon

Maybe have microwave popcorn while working in the classroom.

5:30 p.m.

Start fixing dinner. The family eats at about 6: chicken, pork, or beef, a green vegetable, and either rice or a potato. Eat a small amount of each.

After dinner

May have a piece of fruit or small bowl of Corn Chex without milk.
