Are you a “smart snacker?” Smart snackers know which snacks are good for them, how much and how often they should snack, and how to enjoy the snacks they love as part of a healthy diet. If you’re not a smart snacker today, don’t worry – many of us aren’t. But by making a few changes you can learn how to snack healthy and snack smart.

 

                     Land of the Snacker

China has gained a reputation as being a snacking nation. Studies show that we’re snacking more than ever before. With our busy lifestyles and hectic schedules snacking helps us get through the day. But as we snack more it’s more important than ever to snack smart. Learning how to be a smart snacker can help you feel less hungry and more energetic while maintaining, or reaching, a healthy weight.

 

 Snack Smart Tips

Healthier Meals Lead to Healthier Snacking

Many people don’t realize that eating healthy meals throughout the day is the most important way to avoid over snacking. People who skip meals get very hungry. When they get hungry they snack. And usually they snack on whatever is convenient, which can be very unhealthy. So whenever possible, don’t skip meals. Also try to make your meals more satisfying by including foods like lean proteins, whole grains and vegetables. These foods are ‘nutrient rich’ and they help you to feel fuller longer, reducing those in between meal cravings that so often get the better of us.

 

 Moderation is the KEY TO SUCCESS!

To maintain a healthy weight the average moderately active women needs about 2,000 calories a day. The number is a little higher, about 2,500 calories for men. But a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner can easily add up to more than 1,700 or 1,800 calories (and that’s before any beverages). This obviously doesn’t leave a lot of calories left over for snacks. So it’s important to keep snack serving sizes under control. That’s why experts recommend that you pre-portion your snacks in bags, or purchase single serve packages. This helps to avoid ‘mindless munching.’
