Why No Snacks
Thursday, November 03, 2011
I spent many years trying to keep my blood sugar stable through snacking between meals only to fail miserably at both stability and weight loss. I have switched over to 3 meals/day carefully timed plus a small carb feeding before bed (per Radiant Recovery; see their website)--about 30 gm protein, 45 gm slow carbs (Bob Greene averaged out), and 10 gm fat or less.
The larger meals are more satisfying ; often I don't have much time to eat at work so planning on eating LESS frequently has helped a lot. Thinking that you have to eat often makes it harder to focus on what else you need to do; fewer meals also means less meal planning!
Just eat your breakfast within an hour of getting up (amazingly effective) then eat your other meals about 5 hrs apart with that carb snack 3 hrs after dinner.
Doing this and feeling better; will post later about how the weight loss goes.
