  • I only snack if I feel super hungry which isn't very often. Then I try a handful of sunflower seeds or nuts, a banana or a yogurt to take the edge off until mealtime. My low metabolism keeps me going. - 4/15/2016 9:19:14 AM
  • Had some string cheese before my workout today, only because I felt hungry. I am trying to only eat when I'm actually hungry. - 2/10/2016 12:07:05 PM
  • I have found that snacking does not support my body. Three meals a day with no snacking between meals or following dinner leaves me feeling at my best. - 12/4/2015 11:15:41 PM
  • various meal replacement shakes have helped with feeling full and satisfied. I add soluble fiber to one each morning, and I'm not hungry. When I was trying to go without from breakfast to dinner, I found myself really overeating in the evening, so I'm a true believer in spacing meals or snacks throughout the day. - 12/4/2015 12:03:01 PM

    Good information. I stopped buying natural peanut butter because I spend too much time "Grazing" on it. - 9/6/2015 10:11:44 AM

    Snacks are always an issue for me. I have a hard time finding snacks that incorporate protein and veggies. Does anyone have suggestions besides hummus and carrots (allergies)? Thanks!! - 8/20/2015 3:06:37 PM

  • Thank you for this useful info. I know my snacks tend to match or exceed a meal allotment. Being mindful and committed help to curb this pitfall. - 7/30/2014 9:34:24 AM

    Tea helps me a lot, and I try to have protein like a slice of meat or nuts. - 2/15/2014 7:27:39 AM
  • I try to make sure I eat every two hours. So I don't get hungry. - 9/10/2013 5:09:12 PM

    I don't like snacking as i actually like to feel hungry before I eat, and to feel satisfied when I finish. I find with snacking, I have to cut the rest of my portions down to a point where it's not enough, in order to stay within my allowance. Plus I don't get the satisfaction of enjoying feeding my hunger. - 9/11/2012 10:01:47 AM
  • Everything doesn't work for everyone. But this method has been suggested to me by , my endocrinologist. To eat smaller meals and eat 5 to 6 meals a day.When my sugars ran high and I get it down where it should be, then I felt like I was starving, so I ate and ate and not what I should have. It is what you eat when you snack or eat . I still don't have the right balance yet but I know I will and water is just as important.I use to not ever had enough. - 9/11/2012 7:58:08 AM
  • Always drink a glass of water with your snack. It feels more substantial and you are more satisfied that way, helping you to not overdo it. - 2/18/2012 12:42:44 PM
  • I only eat when I am hungry now, so I always have snacks on hand just in case I need it, but sometimes I don't. It's just better to be safe than sorry :) - 12/29/2011 12:36:55 PM
