What Time Do You Eat Lunch?

Here at the Sugar Network HQ, we tend to eat lunch really early. It's really fantastic in the sense that someone will come around and say, "Lunch is coming from here today, are you in?" You then decide whether you want in, place your order, hand over your money and a little while later lunch is on your desk! I'm not a morning person, and usually don't eat breakfast (at least a cup of yogurt) until around 10am. However, on days that I decide to join the lunch brigade, I eat breakfast right at 9, or skip it altogether, because lunch usually arrives before noon. If it was up to me, lunch wouldn't arrive until 1pm. So how about you, what time do you eat lunch?

I find the later I eat, the less I tend to eat at night, which is better for me.

Depends on how what I have planned for the day.

I find that my day goes a little faster if I eat lunch after 1pm. In my office, I tend to have meetings from 10am until noon, and I have a standing 2:45pm meeting. That gives me enough time to catch up for an hour, go get something to eat, and finish in time for my next meeting.

My lunch break is 12:30-1:30, but I usually run around and bring lunch back to work with me. So I guess I eat after 1:30.

I'm a late luncher. It drives me insane when lunch comes at 1130. I wouldn't mind eating at 2 or later, Spanish style.

I agree, cravinsugar. It's kind of a toss-up-- eating lunch alone can be kind of lonely and a bit boring, but it also prevents me from eating at restaurants most days. I save money and eat more healthy foods . . . But it'd be nice to have a buddy around more often. =)

llendril, on a previous project one of my friends was with me, so we would eat at our desks and go strolling around the city on our breaks. i loved doing that, but isn't as much fun alone. _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?

i am the one who sticks around in the office while everyone else goes to lunch at noon. then i take my own break at 1:00. so at 12, i'll usually eat my lunch (that i bring from home) at my desk and spend my lunch hour out of the office reading or shopping or something.

It varies every day. If I am the only one in the office, it is tough to get away at a normal time. I like to eat around noon because I usually need a break around that time.

Usually between 12 and 1pm - but if I'm working the day shift at the hospital... it's any time I'm able to squeeze in and take a break!

We have assigned lunch times, although I can deviate from that on occasion, but 11:30 is when I go, I tend to skip breakfast all together, but by the time I get home from work and start cooking dinner I am starving and find myself snacking while I cook which is not good.

I try and make myself wait for lunch at the office as long as possible because if i don't, i am hungry before i even start my walk to the the time i make it to the bus i am feeling nauseus i am so hungry...but walking frmo the bus to the apartment tends to help. By the time i get home i am ravished and tend to a ltitle too much. i snack in between too but i must not be timing them right. _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?

Well see it dpends. I work at a government office, so people start eating lunch as early as 10:30. Smelling all the food in the microwave...i tend to eat right at 12 if i am not already starving to death lmao. but, i do eat breakfast around 6:30 or 7. On the weekends, if i eat lunch it is between 1 and 2. _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?
