When it comes to maintaining a healthy weight, can nibblers rejoice in their random snacking, or are they really destined for disaster?
Pro-snackers will be pleased to hear that snacking can be a healthy habit – when it’s done smartly.
If you can’t eat until later, a substantial snack in the afternoon – perhaps a healthy office snack if you haven’t time to make your own – will help you not over-indulge at dinner.
Eating a small snack such as these power-packed pre-gym snacks will keep your blood sugar stable which will keep you feeling mentally alert and ready for action.
Enjoy your smart snacking!
I am an emotional eater and tend to snack more when I'm stressed. I realise this is seen as a problem, but that's the beauty of using the gym - I can burn off all the extra calories!
The only snacks I tend to have are nuts and dried fruit, and they seem to fill me up nicely until mealtime. If I had a mars bar or something like that I think I would be tempted to gorge on more rubbish!
deny me my snack at your peril - things will get nasty! I still think it is calories in total, doesn't matter if they get spread out. As long as snacks are monitored, steady blood sugar works for me.
I always think grazing is good. Keeps the metabolism up IMO
I love to think that snacking is a good way to get extra nutrients in. However, I have the opposite problem and don't snack at all cos I'm just not hungry enough, and probably need to eat more (yep, it is possible!)
