Healthy Snack Tips for Dieters
My favorite snack recommendation includes all fruit. But of course - other smart choices include jerky, hot air popcorn and rice cakes.
The key is to keep the calories that are consumed during snack time as minimal as possible. You don't want to be feasting in-between meals because when your scheduled main meal arrives, you're not going to be fully hungry.
You may only consume a bit of food during the main meal because you feel so full. Shortly after the meal - generally about two hours, you start to get hungry all over again.
This sets up a circle that poses risk to the success of your diet plan.
Most diets end in a binge - and you certainly don't want that happening to your new diet.
Tips to help prevent binge include the following:
don't restrict calories too severely
enjoy healthy snacks to take the edge off hunger
learn to distinguish the difference between hunger and appetite
Although water or other non-calorie liquids as well as low calorie fruit and vegetables can satisfy hunger for a time, enjoying a serving of oatmeal and beans might rescue your diet.
Yo Yo dieting can not only contribute to bingeing but can impale your good health.
