It is a bad habit not to eat dinner but I pay for it in the morning because I’m starving. In between the normal meals I consume whatever junk food I can get on the go, like ice cream, candy, or cookies. This is no where near what I should have based on a healthy diet.

It would be ideal to eat servings of something with less than 5% of sodium and saturated fat and stay away from foods with more than 20%. Looking into my own pantry I grabbed my family’s favorite cereal and took a look at the label. I found that per serving there is 0% saturated fat, 3% sodium, 23% fiber, 90% iron, and 25% vitamin B12.
Eating a fat delayed dinner 25 minutes, eating a protein delayed dinner 60 minutes, and eating a carbohydrate delayed dinner by 34 minutes.
