Snacks are am important part of a Healthy Diet and Exercise Program. They provide you with the energy needed to support you bodies need throughout the day.
It's not only important to find snacks you like but to find a wide arrainge of calorie ranges.
I have 35, 40, 65, 70, 100, 110, 125, and 140 calorie snacks that I eat on a routine basis. This enables me to mix and match snacks based upon my over all caloric needs and it allows for a lot of variety.
I find it very satisfying that at the end of a day where I've eaten to the upper end of my caloric range that I can have a 35 and 40 calorie snack on hand as it satisfies my needs on a physical and phsychological level. Diversify your snacks and enjoy.

I have used this strategy for a long time and it works for me. I eat basically 400 calories at each main meal and one 100-200 calorie snack. If your calorie allotment is higher eat three 400 calorie meals and 2-3 snacks at 100-300 calories depending on your calorie range.
I tried losing weight many times with no success. If this is happening to you - Try counting your calories. It is the only way I ever have any success in weight loss. Tracking your fitness minutes is fun too, but I find calories super-important!
Stay in your range of calories and try to split your calories into 5 meals per day to speed up your metabolism!9
