    When do you take your dinner?

    I take my dinner at 9 pm. Previously, I was having dinner after 10 pm. But, after starting to live in Hyderabad, and as I and my wife have become old, we learnt to take dinner early by 9 pm.
    I mostly see people having their dinner between 8 pm to 9 pm. The latest are at 10 pm.
    So, what about you? When do you have your dinner?

    we take our dinner at 7pm, some families take at 6pm. That depends on each family. My son comes back at 6.45pm so, we have our dinner together after he takes bath, around 7.15pm. We have white rice, 2 dishes and soup of the day. Sometimes, fish or chicken dish and vegetable is a must. Fried chicken and curries are special dish, we have them once a month.

    We take dinner between 9 and 9.30 pm. That is because children will finish their studies and I will also finish most of my housework by then. My children are chicken lovers. So we have non-veg everyday along with rice and some vegetable preparation.

      That's like my habit, except that we are vegetarians. I take lunch at 1:30 pm and dinner at 9 pm.

    I have four meals a day for my diabetes plan. My last meal at 8PM. My meds are to be taken 12hrs apart so a 8AM meal followed by noon. I have a small meal at 4 - 5 PM too.

      That's good for diabetes patients. Eat small and eat frequently. I also follow this for my BP. So, you can call this 8 pm meal as supper. So, what about walk a mile? I think we can walk a mile at any time not necessarily after meals.

      I like walks while wish I walked more. Maybe I shall begin again. I usually walk in the mornings before the streets are busy with people & cars. Makes for more pleasantry. I do have an exercise bike I ride for 30 minutes a few days a week.

      Actually, I don't walk daily. Only for shopping. That's my problem. I sit at computer from 10 am to 5:30 pm with small break for coffee, 1 hour break for lunch and then one half-an-hour break for tea. 6 pm to 9 pm is for cooking and TV. Then dinner.

    I try not to eat past 6;30 p.m. every night.  This gives my food about 3 hours to digest before I go to bed.  I sleep better if my body is not busy digesting food.  I have an early lunch...11 - 11:30.  We try to eat around 5 - 5:30 but often it ends up being 5:45-6 p.m.  I only eat two meals a day, lunch and supper.  I don't need 3 square meals a day.  I have always had digestive problems (Barrett's Esophagus, GERD, and ischemic colitis, resulting in major surgery in 2012) so I try to chew my food thoroughly when I do eat.
    Dinner is my favorite meal, and I do not want to go to bed feeling uncomfortably full.  This has helped me keep my weight stable...usually a 5 pound window at all times.  Thank you for this question.  Blessings, Sparklea

      Hi, Sparklea. Thanks for the blessings. I like this habit of eating early to allow food to digest. But, I am accustomed to eating late since 1978 and only since 5 years, we are taking it at 9 pm. It used to be 10 pm previously. My blessings to you.

    Wow, 10pm seems very late. Is that because until then the temperature is simply too hot? You must arise later in the morning than my family. We eat our evening meal at 7pm, our lunch at noon, and breakfast at about 7am.

      Hi, Carb. I get up early at 5:45 am daily. Clean kitchen, then take bath and perform puja for one hour. Breakfast at 9 am, lunch 1:30, dinner at 9. This is my schedule since 5 years.
      But your habits are very good. I like it. My blessings to you.

    On the days off usually about 5.00 because of my husband's diabetes.  Since I work nights, sometimes dinner will be latter like 7-8 pm.  On days I work, I try to make crockpot dinners so hubby can have it on time and I can eat it when I want up.

      Good thing. You are so conscious of your husband's health and medication and smart enough to facilitate both of your requirements so cleverly.

    I usually take my dinner between 8,30 and 9.00 pm though I know well that having dinner early is fine. But the new generation follow the wrong practice of late dinner.
