The general rule of thumb for healthy snacking is 200-300 calorie healthy snack in between breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The problem is most people skip out on the snacks or go for unhealthy fatty snack foods. I’ve coached over 100 people in the last 2 and a half years and I would say 50% of my clients initially skipped snacks, 25% opted for unhealthy snacks, and the other 25% were snacking the right way.
A few advantages to snacking include:
- Prevention of over eating: Do you ever find yourself come 12pm about to rip your hair off from hunger? Which prompts you to go out to lunch eating with your eyes. It happens to the best of us. When we have our healthy snack, we can nip that hunger in the butt and hold off our stomach until our next major meal. Plus that overeating usually happens with carbs, and when most people scarf down an extra serving of food for lunch due to the extreme hunger, they’re met shortly after with fatigue from over spiking their insulin. Also, something we want to avoid.
- steady blood sugar levels: The last statement about crashing after a meal has to do with the blood sugar levels. spiking our blood glucose level excessively over and over again can overtime lead to weight gain.
- Provides nutrients: Healthy snacking provides healthy nutrients. Both macro and micronutrients. Healthy macronutrients give us energy, and who can say no to mid morning and mid afternoon natural energy boosts?
