Question - How important are the snacks. I have found that I am not really hungry between meals alot of the time so I just skip them.

05-25-2011, 03:16 PM
I'm the same way, e6uawfa. I really don't eat snacks unless I have some lunch leftovers or something... I'm thinking its fine so long as it doesn't lead to huge meals, but I am kinda nervous about not following the system by the book.

05-25-2011, 03:31 PM
The snacks really do two things for me -
1) they control the low blood sugar in between meals and
2) they make sure I am getting all my servings of things in - dairy, fats, veggies, protein.

Personally, I know I need the snacks to keep myself from over-eating at lunch and dinner. As an aside, it is also good to be sure you are getting enough CALORIES - you do not want your body to go into "starvation mode" and refuse to drop the pounds . . .

Just my two cents!
Be well -

05-25-2011, 03:46 PM
snacks are pretty important. consistent intake means consistent fueling for the metabolism machine. i don't have a morning snack because I don't have enough time between breakfast, gym and lunch, but I do have a mid-afternoon snack. If I'm not hungry, it isn't a big one, just something to keep my body fueled.

MMC - I've basically replaced all of my lettuce consumption with kale. I love the flavor and use it in all of my salads now. It's WAY more nutritious than salad greens, and heartier. I use it in smoothies too. I finally found kale pre-washed and chopped (huge bag for 2.79) and that is the way I plan on buying it from now on - SO easy!

Zeff -Thanks for your comment about snacks and metabolism. I realize that I've got the typical Phase 1 loss of appetite, but I sure as heck don't want to slow my metabolism, so I've decided to try and have at least one snack a day anyway. I'm feeling better about that now. The idea of eating when you're not hungry wasn't sitting well, but now I feel much better.
