I often will avoid any solid food in the mornings, and if I have a big meeting I eat very light.
Good luck finding what works for you. Sounds like you are well on your way. Keep in mind what works well today may be dfferent next month/year. It's all about adapting to change.

My best time to eat a normal sized meal is in the morning---or afternoon.
I will do beeter in the evening if i'm not the one prepareing the meal. It seems the effort it takes to get dinner ready----wipes me out making it more likely for me to have problems--POTS----symptoms----ya know..........

If I dont eat something on the average of every 2-3 hours during waking hours. I feel really sick.. nausea..lightheaded. what not..(but I am also a diabetic..) weak..
but on the flip sid eof that.. if I dont watch what I eat or eat more then I should at one time..I get nausea..vomitting..stomach pain.. and very bloated and what not..
if I eat a regualr meal in the afternoon or evening I tend to feel sick afterwards.. I found that if I just munch during the day.(pudding..cheese..crackers w/ peanut butter.. pickles olives.. maybe some toast and scrambled eggs..) that i am ok..
and that the best time of day for me to eat is about 10-11pm.. which is actually the worst time that you could eat!! and a meal generally isnt very big for me..i can get filled up quite quickly one a few bites of chicken and a few bites of whatever is with it..
But that is when I am most functional.. and for some reason that is about the only time I can eat a real meal wihtout it effecting me badly like it does during the day..
and I drink alot of water and gatorade during the day too..

To icthus, not knowing your full story, I would guess that yes it is because of the salt intake. I know for me the more salt the better.

I've found that what I eat also makes a difference. When I'm going through a potsy period of time, a bowl of spaghetti will make me black out. In general, I limit carbs.
Also, like others mentioned, more frequent small meals/snacks are much easier to deal with than sitting down for a normal portioned meal. Plus, if I eat even a tiny bite after I feel satiated, I get dizzy, nauseous and vomiting.
