If you ate two HEALTHY snacks in the evening, and they fit your plan, doesn't necessarily mean that it was the snack which caused the increase in weight. You burn many calories daily with your very active lifestyle. We do not actually gain overnight from the foods we eat. (usually). My guess is it is not getting enough that might be the culprit. It takes 3500 calories to gain a pound. Sometimes eating at the higher end of our range for a day and switching things up even if it is bite over
will actually help to reduce weight.
I am not advocating for you to go over your plan or what works for you. Just that I agree with your insights and everything I am reading on Spark validates what you say.
From a personal view-Don't worry you know your system the best and will find just the right combination.
