I agree with you, I don't know how much difference it makes. The thing that drew my attention was the 5-10 pm. I don't have time during the day to eat and I typically don't get home from work until 5 or 6 pm. So, from 5-10 pm is a perfect fit for me. I have always liked to snack in the evenings , but always felt guilty because of the whole "late night eating" stigma. I'm on day 2 today. I hope to lose about 30-40 lbs. The 5-6 small meals a day made me fat.
