4. Don’t Snack Between Meals
Contrary to some advice, snacking between meals is an excellent way to lose or maintain weight. Blood sugar levels dip approximately 3-5 hours after a meal leading to fatigue and hunger. Moderate snacking with healthy food choices can help to curb hunger between meals and decrease binge eating when mealtime comes around by keeping blood sugar level throughout the day. In addition, snacking can help keep metabolism going throughout the day. When snacking it’s important to remember to choose healthy, nutrient rich snacks such as fruits, vegetables, and nuts instead of foods with empty calories such as candy and chips.
