5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Biting Into a Snack
Leave a Comment
Return to Article
Very picky about my snacks, mostly nuts and fruit
I usually like fruit as snack but maybe need to add some protien
THX for reminder!
I bought some portion pack snack size baggies and use them. They have the portion sizes marked so they help when trying to eat a certain amount. I had also belonged to a company that sends snacks once or twice a month, but most of them were high carb so I stopped the subscription.
It's easier not to snack. Fewer decisions.
Some good info but a person shouldn't snack... look for the reasons you do, then try to eliminate.
Good article. I would add that it helps to plan for snacks everyday, deciding on time and type. By planning you can be sure to have healthy food conveniently on hand.
Indeed, great points to consider before putting a snack in your mouth!
If I get into the mindless munching, the worst thing I get into is pretzel sticks. Very low in calories and I can much on one serving and I'm good. The rest of the time it's crunchy fruit.
Thanks for the great tips!
Thanks. I try to eat something every couple 3 hrs. to keep the metabolism even throughout the day.
Call it a snack or a mini meal, I eat thruout the day & evening always chosing a combo of at least two food groups. There are so many choices! Love grazing, I think it's healthy & keeps my blood sugar level along w/ other hormones.
