    In general, your goal should be to eat small meals throughout the day. In other words, have a light breakfast, a mid-morning snack, a light lunch, a mid-afternoon snack, and a reasonable dinner. Many patients have also told us that they cannot tolerate late night snacking, feeling bloated or nauseated during the night.
