Blueberries and melonies sound like a good snack to me.

I am preparing my snacks for the week so that I don't eat the whole bag. I need to get back on track.

I week I pick to do sensible snacking and I am having a stressful work week.

Yesterday, at lunch time I broke down and bought sugar wafer cookies which is a comfort found for me. At least I did not eat the whole box, I did portion out a serving size twice during the day.

Also knowing I had this challenge this week, I watched the amount.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.

I got sensible snacker too. Good to see that we are all heading in the right direction.

I have my snacks planned. I already planned to snack at least twice a day to keep my metabolism steady. This has also help me not eat too much at meal times.

I was not feeling good earlier in the week so snacking was a little different.

Have a great day.

Depending on how early I get up and where I am, I allow myself a snack mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

I have been trying not to snack, but I try and keep plain nuts around in case I absolutely need to.

Snacking is a smart way to keep hunger at bay throughout the day, but the key is snacking on the right things, at the right times, and in the right places. Are your snacking habits healthy--or horrific? Find out how your snacks stack up with this short quiz.

Spark - Are You a Smart Snacker?
www.sparkpeople.com/resource
/assessmen
t_questions.asp?quizid=70



We do it in the car, on the train, in front of the TV, on the phone, and even in bed. For too many of us, snacking has become so automatic that our brains barely register the hand-to-mouth motion. And it's not as if we're all reaching for diet-friendly apples: A 2010 study from the University of North Carolina found that most of us eat nearly 600 calories a day—roughly a third of our food in snacks rather than meals.

If you are not a snacker that is okay, you still get full points but IF you are a snacker keep in mind that the calories in your snacks count too. Some consider a snack as mini-meals. A SNACK IS 200 CALORIES OR LESS; more than that and it is a meal. When you snack you have to consider your total daily calorie limit and then distribute the calories to include your snacks.

e-and-after-a-workout


I encourage parents to discuss the after game snacks. Do are kids need them? Do they need the sugar processed snack they are getting? Are we teaching them bad habits?

For the purpose of this challenge there is no limits on how many snacks a day you have. We are encouraging you to make ONE of those snacks a healthy one.

This Challenge is not to encourage you to snack if you are not already a snacker; but if you do snack, this is to encourage you to choose healthy snacks, under 200 calories.



Challenge
1) Record all you eat including your snacks and don't forget to include those bite size chocolates or mints or gum.
2) Add a point each day for eating that healthy snack.

See if you can reach 10 points for the week. Post your Count during the week.
