hey thanks Alysia-
You are definitely right. I need to re-learn how to snack. When I was in my whole-foods only phase I actually didn't snack. I didn't really need to. But with a desk job now, the cravings for snacks hit when they didn't used to.
Thanks!
RS

Hi, RS, and welcome! Poke around all you like and feel free to jump in.

Between meal snacks can be good for you, it's all a matter of what those snacks are! Listen to your body because it's telling you what you're craving. Carrots and apples can satisfy the sweet cravings; peanut butter and low-fat cheese sticks can satisfy the protein, and sometimes salty, craving. Somewhere around here I have a list of craving satisfiers, have to find it...

Welcome to the team! I found that eating mostly whole foods was a big key to my weight loss. When I start eating processed foods again, I feel terrible and I can almost feel the weight coming back on. It takes a lot of planning but it is worth it. Good luck!

Hi everyone! I'm RS. I am so glad I found this team!! I was someone who only ate whole foods for about three years, nothing processed, no junk. I felt & looked great. Then I went back to school (study snacks sneaked back in) then I got married (cozy, comfort & junkfood was brought back into my house--- I didn't fight it). Now I'm past the fat/happy honeymoon stage, I'm finishing school and I really want to get back on track!

Thanks for letting me poke around the team!
