    Hmm...I guess they get spread out pretty evenly most of the time (+/- 100 calories), but if I have extra calories to eat up from activity, then I guess dinner gets bigger. But not usually volume wise, just more calorie dense.

    Dinner is almost always my heaviest meal of the day -- usually have 700 to 1,200 calories for dinner.

    I eat small breakfasts and lunches (about 250 calories for each) so that I can have 1,000 left for dinner/dessert.
    It really depends on your lifestyle and what works for you and helps you stick to your calorie goals.

    between lunch and dinner. Usually run at lunch so end up eating a lot in the afternoon after my recovery meal/snack. Working on balancing it better though....

    During my son's football season Lunch is typically my biggest meal. I eat a smallish breakfast, and then by the time I get home from football practice I'm too tired to cook a full meal, so I'll have a salad or a sandwich or leftovers if available. Otherwise dinner is my bigger meal.

    Depends on the day...it's very much variable and also irrelevant.

    I typically eat around 1100-1200 calories. Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner I try to make all 300 calories or less. That leaves me with 200-300 calories for snacks and I'd usually have fruit which is low calorie anyway (an apple, watermelon, maybe some ryvita with flora spread). I'm very simple and basic with my food & calories. However, sometimes I allow my dinners to be as high as 400 calories with lower cal breakfast & lunch options. I'd rather have higher calorie dinners and dinner is my favourite meal.

    The most I eat in one sitting is for lunch, around 550 kcal on a regular day. It makes sense for me as I find I sleep better without a heavy meal in the evening and that also sets me up for eating on my regular schedule the next day.

    I tend to have a green smoothie (200sih kcal) for an afternoon snack, around 300-400 kcal for dinner and then an evening snack at around 200 kcal (peanut butter + apple, chia pudding, banana snicker bite).

    I eat two meals a day (plus a snack between) - dinner is always the biggest meal at between 700 and 900 calories.

    I save between 500-700 calories for dinner usually (out of a total of 1300). I'm lazy with dinner and tend to let my roomie cook so I don't often count the calories. (I'm just careful with the portion)

    Dinner/Dessert. I am a daily dessert eater and generally I eat most of my calories after 4PM through dinner and dessert. Usually around 800-900 calories total for the two.

    Dinner and snacks. I like to snack in the evenings, so I save calories for that purpose.

    My largest is usually breakfast, since I work dayshifts and I need the extra energy to get through.
