Nov 23, 2023 | Healthy Habits, Self-Care

Let’s cut to the chase and chat about something we all do but might not always get right—snacking. No fluff, just straightforward tips to make your snacking game work for you. Whether it’s staying full for longer, timing your bites strategically, or debunking common myths, I’ve got you covered.

Snacking 101 Tips

  • Snack with purpose for energy and well-being.
  • Stay full for 2-3 hours, not just 45 minutes.
  • Limit snacks to once or twice daily, spaced 4 hours apart, when possible.
  • Include protein and healthy fats for a balanced boost.

Debunking Myths:

Myth: Snacks Are Always Unhealthy

Truth: Not all snacks are equal; choose nourishing options.

Myth: Snacking Throughout the Day is Better

Truth: Best to snack once or twice daily, 4 hours apart.

Myth: Avoid Snacking at Night

Truth: An evening snack can prevent hunger and anxiety overnight caused by cortisol spikes from low blood sugar.

Myth: Follow Diet Trends for Optimal Health

Truth: Know your DNA; trends may not fit everyone.

Cheers to simple, effective snacking!
