I think that the fact that you are tracking what you are eating and taking a good look at it is an excellent first step.
I think that snacking can be a valid food plan if you need that in your schedule, but you probably need to think about a greater variety of snacks that covers more nutrients.
Some higher protein snacks could include hard boiled eggs (but mostly throw away the yolk), some lowfat cheeses (such as mini-baby-bel light which is wrapped to go, yogurt (but this is still fairly high carb), almonds (which are higher fat), snack shakes (I love Glucerna chocolate flavor - just look for one that is not too many calories and has some fiber if possible)
I can think of more later but I have to run out...
Our team does not always read "new" posts, so you should ask your question again on either the Daily checkin or on the Coaching Corner.

Hi ya'll I honestly thought I was eating healthy with my snacking. I work 12.5 hour days and there is not always (hardly never) time for a brakfast, lunch or dinner break. I took fruit and fiber cereal to work. My carbs were off the chart. I almost got depressed. Any suggestions.
