I eat 3. I try to get a little bit of protien at each one, when i can. so some nuts, or peanut butter. yougurt. or home made browine "power bars" cut into 100 cal portions.

And yeah, i have to have my wine or chocolate (alternate days) too!

Just trying to learn to eat right, before i worry too much about cals.

I eat every 2-1/2 to 3 hours - so I have 3 meals and 2 snacks in between

1 to 2

If you make the unconditional commitment to reach your most important goals, if the strength of your decision is sufficient, you will find the way and the power to achieve your goals.

It varies for me. Varies a lot. Sometimes I'm hungrier at mealtimes than others. If my meals are on the small side, all of my meals are more like snacks and I eat 6-8 times total. If my meals are larger, I might not have any snacks at all.

I'd say on average I have one or two.

For me, I do best on small meals and snacks; that's what helped me learn portion control. I have 2-3 snacks during the day, typically mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and pre-workout (early evening).

Motivation will get you to the start line; discipline will get you to the finish.

depends on your definition of a snack. less than 100 calories between "meals" none usually.

a big snack or small meal (200 - 300 calories) 5 to 6 a day. I do best eating smaller amounts more often, then the "traditional" 3 meals with snacks.

All the so called "secrets of success"will not work ... unless you do.

6-8...I like to graze...but they are pretty low cal (6 almonds - 40 cal, 300 g sliced cucumbers tossed in vinegar - 40 cal, 300g watermelon - 100 cal, etc)...

I am a freak and weigh everything with a food scale!

I always have 2 or 3 snacks planned. Whether I eat them or not depends on if I get hungry between meals or after dinner. My snacks are fruit 95% of the time. Today I've planned grapes, watermelon and cantaloupe w/cottage cheese. I've already eaten my cantaloupe snack. I'm having a second cup of coffee right now, which wasn't planned but barely makes a dent in my daily totals.

I eat one snack per day - during the week when my breakfast is really early, I eat my snack in the morning, but on the weekends when I can sleep in a bit, I eat my snack in the afternoon.

It depends on my intake- if I have a big breakfast I don't have a snack and just eat lunch. If not, I have a small snack mid morning. I work out in the afternoons so I have a protein shake after!

Current goal:
-8 pounds (32 total) by October

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!
