Food habits and several daily self-measures of psychophysiological performance were obtained from twenty-three adult volunteers offered canned and frozen military rations for a 12-week period. After 6 weeks of ad libitum choice, their daily caloric intake was restricted to a single morning or evening meal. Results were analyzed in terms of correlates of verbal preference, smorgasbord sampling and actual choice and intake, and in the effect of the single daily meals on shifting the circadian rhythms of physiological and psychological variables, and in maintaining body weight as compared with the ad libitum situation.
