I think you should portion out all the foods you plan to eat for the day, except for what you plan to eat at supper time. You can then graze on these foods, and you would be keeping within your calorie limit.
I look at the Glycemic Index on-line. In the South Beach Diet, he has the listing of low Glycemic foods. I have Metabolic Syndrome/Insulin Resistance, so I have to avoid sugars/starches that spike my Insulin and then pump out Gherlin the Hunger Hormone so I crave more sugar/starches. I find having some protein, etc. helps and drink my no-cal water. I got a copy of Gary Taubes' "WHY WE GET FAT AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT" at the library. His book is well worth reading.

Well, I don't think you should graze all day. I normally eat three meals a day and 1 to 2 snacks a day. However I know it's hard to break a habit, so I would suggest fruits and veggies!

Hi all- I have never been one to eat just 3 meals a day. I'm a grazer. The only meal that I eat as a meal is supper. So my question is, how can I graze all day with out over eating? I know I need to track what I eat and drink my water to stay full. What types of food are good for grazing? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
