Recently one of our employees named Steve retired. He was a fairly skinny guy. Boy did he have a busy schedule before he left us.
He had peanuts at 10 AM. Then potato chips at 1 PM and finally an Ice Cream bar at 3 PM. This was on top of his lunch at noon.
He added credence to the idea that you will NOT gain weight if you eat a lot of small meals.
A long time ago I worked on the West Coast Shuttle effort. A lot of my time was spent in the same building with the Operations Maintenance Documentation (OMD) Group. I liked to call it the OMG department because at exactly 2 PM one of the large data entry personnel would pop a bag of popcorn. OMG! The smell of popcorn would permeate the whole building.
My point is those snack times allowed me to either set my watch at 2 PM every day or just leave my watch at home. But alas those were the good ole’ days.
