Identify your worst 'snack time' and use it for Fitness Minutes instead
Late afternoons, I would snack while fixing dinner -- usually filling up before dinner was ready, but I'd still eat a full dinner. Now I go to the gym or take a walk during the time dinner is cooking and get a double benefit! Fewer calories in, More calories burned!
An orange is winning snack. First its fruit, and you can always include another fruit or veggie into your day. Its full of all sorts of good stuff. Its filling. And by the time you peel it, pick it apart, and eat it...its taken at least 10 minutes. Which means snack time over and get back to work. Its just enough food and time to get me through til lunch.
