It would depend on what foods those calories are coming from. The quality of the food you eat is just as important if not more so than the number of calories you take in. While it's true that a person could lose weight eating at McDonalds every day as long as they burned more calories than they took in; how healthy would their internal organs be from all that saturated fat, sugar and salt ? Good health starts from the inside. when our insides our healthy, that reflects on our outsides.
Also, breakfast should be the most important meal of your day because it fuels your day. Eating a light breakfast and lunch sets a person up for binge later in the day. If you eat too little in the morning, you might end up snacking on junk later for that energy rush. Ideally, it's best to balance the amount of calories you eat through the day so you aren't at risk for overeating later.

I did not use all of my calories for breakfast or lunch is it ok if i go over on my snack, eat a light dinner and still stay within my range at the end of the day or should i stick with the regime. I'd like to eat a package of Redenbacher Smart Popcorn. I figure I'd have a good amount of cabbage a small amount of rice and two meatballs for dinner. That should take care of my calories for the day. I'm trying to figure out if its ok to eat the popcorn but it goes over my snack calories. I'm willing to not have an evening snack. If you think I should not do this please let me know.
