Snacking (or small meals) are crucial to staying healthy, losing weight and having a good metabolism. To super charge your metabolism and keep a steady blood sugar level, you need to eat every 2-3 hours, no longer than 3 hours apart.
I personally eat every 2 hours throughout the day, consuming anywhere from 1500-2000 calories. It keeps me fueled, avoids hunger pains, and gives me the strength to accomplish all the days tasks. I also am able to avoid binge eating by avoiding ever getting overly hungry.
Remember that preparing your snacks in advance can make it easier to stay on track and eat right.
Wash and cut your produce as soon as you get it home and store it in clear containers in the fridge. Boil your eggs the night before and store them in the fridge. Bake your chicken breasts on Sunday night to have handy in the fridge for 3 days of the week. Prepare homemade hummus on Sunday to have handy throughout the week.
I have several other healthy snack ideas and would be happy to help if you are stuck and can't figure out what to snack on throughout the day.
