Snack Attack

Wednesday, April 08, 2015

Another hearth healthy tip from an advertisement supplement in in the October 2005 Good Housekeeping Magazine.

The TIP: Sensible snacking can provide a healthy pick-me-up between meals and actually helps avoid overeating.

The info: "Do you think because you are watching what you eat that you have to say goodbye to between-meal-snacks? Think again! Research shows that sensible snacking throughout the day is actually good for you because it can boost your energy and help to stave off hunger that causes you to overeat later in the day."

"Choose nutritious snacks that will fill you up and keep you satisfied over those filled with fat and empty calories. The other key to smart snacking is portion control. Choose snacks that are either pre-portioned or easy to portion into individual servings of about 100 - 200 calories each so you're not tempted to overindulge and add extra calories without realizing it."

    I am a big snacker. I do love the portion control snacks as well.

    emoticon Snacks are built into my nutrition. It's better for me to eat smaller portions of food more often. Definitely staves off hunger!

    I agree! Going hungry between meals is just a recipe for failure. Get in the healthy stuff and you won't find yourself over doing at meal time.
