I like to balance my meals into about 300 calorie each meal, So if Istart off with a 300 breakfast plus a 300 calorie lunch/ 400 dinner thats about 1000. plus allowing myself about 2-3 150 calorie snacks throughout the day and night. I end up right around 1300-1500 calories a day within eating 5-6 times!
I find that this is especially helpful in the times when I feel that I am hungry during the inbetween times of meals... If I wouldve had a 500 calorie breakfast it wouldve screwed me for the entire day and left myself starving.
I've started selecting more fiber filled snacks. I love fiber one bars as well as smartfood popcorn snacks. They are all 100-150 calorie portion controlled snacks. They are perfect for when I have extra calories in the day or to pair with a sandwich for a meal.
I feel like I'm cheating when I do this and there is just something sweet and comforting in this litte secret. I save an organic cookie(s) and a cup of soy or almond milk for the last snack of the day. Roughly 200 calories it's a soothing way to end my day. Just don't eat it too late before you go to bed495466
