Breakfast, lunch and dinner seem too far apart on some days. Our first instinct is to grab a snack to satisfy our cravings and hunger. While this is a great option since you are listening to your body’s signals for “feed me/fuel is low”, during these times we often reach for the wrong type of snack.
Crunchy, salty, sweet high calorie goodness is what we often seek “in-between” meals. This is usually due to the fact that your blood sugar is a bit low since it has been a few hours since you have eaten. Your body wants instant gratification. With these high calorie, yet tasty, types of snacks, you may end up eating more than you wanted! In a flash your morning cardio calorie burning session has been “re-consumed” via vending machine goodies.
While eating every few hours is a great way to keep the metabolic fire burning, don’t use it as an excuse to make poor choices that will sabotage you in the long run. Below you will find some “healthy” alternatives that will keep you on track while satisfying your hunger.
