  • Some awesome ideas.
  • I like 15 raw cashews as my mid afternoon snack. It keeps me away from something worse and is good protein.
  • Single servings help me, especially if I want something crunchy or salty.
  • my snacks are usually a nice piece of fruit with a glass of water and maybe a few nuts
  • Snacks are good--but for me, snacking at night leads to bingeing.
  • Also carrying nuts,bananas and yogurt. They pretty much carry themselves....
  • Planned snacks (healthy) are a great way to keep on track!

    Using all the suggestions given.
  • Snacks are an intergral part of my life and that includes a bedtime snack. Small meals are good if you are eating within your calorie range.
  • I eat every 3 hours, 5 small meals daily and a slightly larger supper, 6 meals total. I will sometimes eat chocolate or ice cream for a snack at 100 calorie amounts,sometimes 100 calories of popcorn or nuts. I consider no food off limits as this is a lifetime eating plan and not a diet. I do not want fruit all the time for a snack as long as I get my proper nutrition for that day. One time a month I go out to eat, sometimes fish & chips and plan in advance for 7 days before. For the 7 days I eat 100 calories less and make sure to get my daily exercise in to make up for this. The 700 calories is sometimes divided among supper and a larger snack or slightly larger lunch. I go out with a friend on this day. The day I go out I also walk for 2 hours before I go out. I have lost 40 pounds!
  • Bring a diabetic, I am very aware of keeping my blood sugar at an even level. Snacks are an integral part of my success. I check my blood sugar two hours after each meal, which is also the perfect interval to wait before snacking. I have an apple as an after breakfast snack, and an ounce of cheese as an after lunch snack. This keeps my appetite under control and has allowed me to lose 45 pounds since November. I have also lowered my a1c from 10.9 to 5.7, just .1 above "normal".
