Snacking is so hard to nail down, how much? when? what? Where do you even start? So i have complied my top 3 Tips for snacking that will boost your metabolism instead of gaining weight. You can snack you just need to know how!
First off, snacking is a great way to keep your energy up, boost your metabolism and feel full all day! But the mistake most people make is not snacking but what they snack on.
My top rule for snacking is never do it if its not healthy, if nothing else start there! Don't eat junk.
Second, try to stay under 150 calories( I post a ton of low-calorie options ) and if nothing else fruit and veggies are a simple, easy and fast option!
Lastly, find your balance. Depending on your schedule this will very person to person, but for me i have breakfast, lunch, one small snack in the afternoon and dinner. This is just an idea and what works for me but you might rather have smaller meals and more snacks. Play around with it and see what works well for you! Finding your balance is always hard so don't be frustrated if it takes some time.
Here are some recipes i use for snacks:
