To snack, or not to snack?
Many people feel that snacking between meals will just cause us to take in too many calories…
But others say that it helps us to eat less when it comes to meal-time.
The first statement might be true when these “snacks” are, in fact, big or unhealthy meals instead of actual snacks. But the second case may be equally true – IF the right approach to snacking is taken… How do we snack healthy? The first step is portion control. You should not be eating a full-size meal. After this, make sure your snacks are healthy and plan between your meals. This will help you get from one meal to the next without becoming too hungry and then over-eating. To make this process easier, try meal- and snack-prepping ahead of time so you don’t give in to the sudden urge of an unhealthy snack when the hunger strikes. Meal prep will also help to make sure that you stay within your daily calorie limit.
