I haven't tried it, but snacks are supposed to be good for weight loss. Eating 3 meals and 2 snacks (or more) helps keep your metabolism up, and prevents overeating at mealtime. The trick is to eat something every 3 hours or so. Avoiding snacks is old-school
I agree with Suzanne. Snacks have helped me be successful in losing 40 lbs. I used to skip breakfast, skip lunch and inhale food once I got home from work. Now that I eat ever 2 1/2 - 3 hours, I am losing very steadily. OK, I eat much cleaner, healthier, and I kicked in the exercise too - but - seriously - snacking is a winning strategy for me.

Eating 4 to 6 times a day keeps your metabolism running efficiently and you don't get so hungry you want to eat everything in sight. Eating snacks and sweets on Saturday and Sunday is a laugh - all the good from the week will be undone and you don't learn a thing about changing your eating habits for life so the weight stays off.
