If I've worked out hard in the morning, and lunch was a few hours ago, I could be starving by 4 pm. This is a DANGEROUS time for me to eat certain foods (like junky ones with salt, fat, and carbs). I found that by only allowing myself to eat from a certain small list of snack foods, I could stay in control until supper. Below is my list:
Here are a few non-trigger snacks from my list: Apple with almond butter; greek yogurt and blueberries; carrots and hummus.
Snacks provide vitamins, minerals, and fiber that you might not get during meals. Snacks can lead to excess fat and calories if you are not careful. Set a limit of 100 calories per snack. Potion out your snacks into a baggie or mini containers or just grab a piece of fruit most are under 100 calories.
