Snack Your Way Slim
It would be safe to say you're probably a snacker. Over half of American adults admit to snacking two to three times each day. The good news is those who snack frequently are most likely to have the healthiest diets. Keep in mind, eating more often doesn't necessarily mean eating more. The idea is to keep your metabolism revving by consuming "mini meals" every few hours.
Your mini meals should be satisfying, easy to eat and - most importantly - nutritious. Here are 3 ways to keep your snacking healthy:
Drink up. Sometimes our bodies mistake thirst for hunger. Before grabbing a snack, drink a glass of water. If you’re still feeling hungry 10 minutes later, grab a small snack to feed your growling tummy.
Pack it in. Vending machines are full of processed, sugar-coated options. Instead, pack good-for-you snacks and carry them with you to work, school or when running errands. Baby carrots and hummus, almond butter and apple slices or just a handful of nuts are your best picks to pack.
Measure it out. Overeating is easy when you're grabbing straight from the family-sized chip bag. Be mindful of your portions by measuring out one serving of your favorite healthy snack before chowing down.
