  • Good info for everyone
  • Wow. The snack chart idea is a good one, but.......I've been working really hard to eliminate just about everything on that chart. Why is the health community STILL advocating grains and high sugar foods??? I typically reach for a protein/good fat/veggie combo that is full of nutrition not an empty processed carb. Things I make it a point to have on hand are: nuts, minimally processed chicken or turkey lunchmeat, radishes, olives, grape tomatoes, artichokes, cheese, tuna, pickles, cucumbers, and also a small portion of leftovers works too.
  • Great info, thanks.
  • IA snack chart is a great idea, but that particular snack chart? Juice & Juice bars = sugar spikes followed by sugar crashes!
    What I do is make my own snack chart, and list those items that are healthy, tasty, easy to grab, and easy on the spikes and drops.

    I USE 3 MEALS, 2 SNACKS AND IT REALLY WORKS FOR ME.
  • Very good information.
  • Good article. I use the 2-3 meals and 2 snacks, needing one at bedtime. Thanks.
  • I eat lots of fruits and veggies, 3 meals a day and 2 snacks. I eat breakfast late and have lunch about 1 p.m. I eat dinner around 7 p.m. I need the snack. I exercise right after dinner and before I go to bed my sugars are low so I have an apple or banana with peanut butter or an apple with string cheese. Sometimes I eat some crackers with peanut butter and almond milk. I don't get enough calcium so I need the milk. It's working great for me and has for the last 8 1/2 years.
  • I like charts and tables in articles.
  • TOMATOCAFEGAL
    Because of my work schedule I have been using the 2 snacke with 3 meals formula. Early Breakfast, snack, Lunch is not until after 1, stay busy, Dinner with family so by 6:30, then snack in evening. has been working for me.
  • Snacks have always been a big part of my diet ever since I can remember. Has you get older, your dietary needs to change and yes, that includes snacking. Smaller portions have made a difference and I eat more veggies now.
  • So many carbs! Yes, let's give people more of what is making them sick. How about some crackers?
