Summer Weight Loss Challenge Day 16: Don't Forget to Snack

Welcome to day 16 of the Summer Weight Loss Challenge!

Don't forget to snack!

Who would've thought that snacking between meals is actually GOOD for your weight loss.

Here is why snacking is important:

  • Snacking can prevent you from overeating when it comes to mealtime.
  • Intense hunger can cause you to choose less healthy options at mealtime
  • Snacking keeps your metabolism constantly running
  • Small frequent meals, rather than 3 large meals a day, mean your blood sugar remains steady
  • Snacks are fuel for your body between meals that provide you with energy, so opt for healthy options like fruits, veggies and nuts

Do you snack?
Do you find it helps you stay on track with your dietary needs?
What types of things do you snack on?

I don't snack as much as I used to but I still do.  Granola, fruit, dried fruit, nuts, things that make me feel like I have a solid snack when I need one are best for me.  I track what I eat through an app on my phone and that really helps.

I snack but I need to get better at it. I usually eat fruit but then I feel like I'm eating all day which doesn't help me mentally.

I've been on Nutrisystem for almost a week now, and the plan includes 2 snacks. In the mornings, I might have some fruit, and in the afternoon, my favorite snack is hummus and plum tomatoes (I like to dip!)

I'm not diabetic, but I do get weak and very cranky when I'm hungry and my blood sugar gets low.

I eat like a baby. I'm actually trying to stop eating fruit so frequently during the day so I'm drinking even more water. My teeth were starting to suffer.
