  • 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
  • Good article. Thanks. - 2/28/2014 4:27:16 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

    Snacking is my saving grace. Before I discovered this as a way to keep my blood sugar even throughout the day, I tested 1 point below diabetic. With a strong family history of diabetes, this was my wake up call. As I researched, I found that well-planned snacks are crucial to controlling my blood sugar, along with exercise and generally healthy eating! And, no, eating more protein at meals did not work - I tried it. LOL - 12/29/2011 10:54:25 AM
  • snacks are an important part of my eating plan. I am in the 1200-1550 calorie range and I eat 300 for breakfast, 300 for lunch, 300 for afternoon snack and 300-500 for dinner. I am RAVENOUS around 4 pm no matter what I eat for lunch so without that planned afternoon snack, I nibble on junk or get super crabby until dinner time. So I'm in the multiple mini meals camp and it works for me. I lost 40 pounds doing this and when I stopped, I gained 15 back over a year. - 12/29/2011 9:44:33 AM
  • I wonder if snacking would be so necessary if meals included enough protein and fat... - 7/8/2011 10:20:38 AM
  • I've added more meals to my nutrition tracker: Pre Workout, Workout, Elevenses, PM Something and I have the usual Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snack as well. This feels more accurate and honest to how I live. I feel healthier eating small several times a day rather than a few major times in a day. - 7/6/2011 4:48:15 PM
  • I eat about 6 times a day. Call it a snack, meal, mini-meal... whatever! I am almost never hungry and it has helped me to keep calories in check and balance food intake and exercise output to a point where I am at an optimal burn rate.
    I was eating less often and the same amount of calories and at the wrong times in relationship to exercise previously. Put me on a 3 month plateau!! - 7/6/2011 2:48:42 PM
  • Repitition is the mother of rettention and I keep reading this article to keep it on my mind. Especialy when I'm tempted to hang around in the kitchen for no reason. - 7/6/2011 1:40:46 PM
  • I'm all about "mini-meals." I eat 4-6 meals a day, and I am never hungry and seldom "over-eat."
