There is a positive Curafen Review psychological effect that results from snacking. If you know you will be able to eat every 3 hours or so, don't you think you'll typically eat less in general at any given time? Otherwise, if you don't eat regularly, then you'll overeat because you won't know when you'll get to eat again. Snacking allows you to not feel restricted even if you are trying to watch your calories. So when should snacking occur? Ideally, you should try to eat every 3 to 4 hours. For some people, that means eating a snack between breakfast and lunch and then again between lunch and dinner. Sometimes breakfast and lunch are close enough that no snack is needed. So you need to look at your own schedule and figure out if it would be beneficial to throw a snack in there. Snacks aren't designed to be large from a portion or calorie perspective. They should be less than 150 calories (maybe more depending on your exercise level and your weight goals). Usually fruit and vegetables with a few nuts or a scoop of peanut butter meet those requirements. There are lots of options for healthy snacks! If you aren't sure if you need a snack or if you think you need to come up with some new and healthier snack options, talk with your dietitian. Happy snacking!
