Rethinking my snacking habit

I tend to want a snack mid morning and mid afternoon, so at one point I decided to plan my lunch with my snacks in mind. Essentially, I could "snack on my lunch" all day and keep my blood sugar more level through my work day. In this way I can come closer to the 6 small meals a day approach.

Resisting Temptation

I've been having this issue with eating too many Skinny Cow treats. So, every time I want to eat one, I ask myself, "Would I eat an omelet instead?" If I am willing to make an egg white omelet, I know I am actually hungry. If I just want the treat, I eat if I haven't eaten one yet--or I say no if...
