Tips For Healthy Snacking
lot of people believe eating between meals only results in weight gain and this isn't absolutely true. Snacking can be beneficial to maintaining
your weight while also providing nutritional value when it's done right. So, here
are a few tips to help you snack smarter and healthier.
- Never ignore hunger pangs
you feel pangs of hunger in between meals, never fight it off till your next
meal because you will most likely end up eating a lot more than you should.
- Meal times should never be too far apart
you stretch your meal times too far apart, you raise your stress levels and this
either kick starts cravings for sugar or causes you to over-indulge eventually.
- Include healthy snacks in your meal plan
healthy snacks like fresh fruits, vegetables, yoghurt etc., in your meal plan helps
you prepare snacks that can add a lot of extra nutrients to your diet. It also helps
you make the switch from junk food to a healthier option and ensures that you're
armed with the right kind of snacks when those pangs of hunger start to kick
- Always remember to control your portions
much of everything is never good. So when
snacking it's important to eat just enough, not too much so you don't end up
over eating and not too little that you still end up hungry.
you eat too fast or while you're distracted you end up consuming a lot more
than your body really needs without noticing.
- Take snacks with you when you're on the road
a lot of time on the road/travelling can be really stressful and can lead to
craving junk food. It's important to have healthy snacks at hand on such occasions
so you don't end up over indulging.
