Some of us even snack at the beginning of our new diet. When you change your eating habits drastically, your body takes a while to adjust. It’s no surprise that when you go from eating whatever you want to just healthy foods, your body is going to think it’s still hungry and crave those pizzas and burgers. That’s when we’ve got to be strong, though, and overcome those cravings!
As a matter of fact, snacking is actually proven to help you maintain a lower BMI (body mass index). Healthy snacking of course, though. We’re not talking about the chips and candy bars. Nutritionists say that eating healthy snacks throughout your day increases your metabolism and helps to lower your BMI. So if we snack smarter, we are actually doing pretty darn well! Some people say it works better for them to eat 6 small meals a day and some say it’s better to eat 3 normal meals with 2 snacks in-between. It may take a while to figure out what works better for you and your body but once you do, snacking won’t seem like a bad thing anymore!
