Snacks freind or foe?
 
What do you guys and gals do for between meal snaks? What cals fat protein and carbs per snak. I tend to grab a small piece of meat or if available an ounce or 2 of cream cheese.

Hmm..I grab a LC cookie that I have made many times. Or meat with mayo.

There are different theories on snacking..Some peeps feel it is better to eat a decent meal so you don't need a snack, that way your blood sugar isn't always "high" and others like to eat smaller meals.

I think if you snack, then you shouldn't eat huge meals..Because all that food adds up.

I have found that smaller meals and small snacks work best for me.

After all, when we were hunter/scavengers that is how we used to eat ;)

Plus, when you eat too much, you body has to store the excess energy. Keeping low levels of intake all day long helps decrease your body's need to store
