Ever Feel Like This?

 

We have all been there, you know, that place where you are so hungry that you will grab anything that in front of you and stuff it in your mouth.  We have gone all day without eating a supportive meal and now healthy eating goes out the window for filling our bellies

 

But it doesn’t have to be that way.  With a little planning ahead you can stay on track.

 

Why Snacking (or grazing) throughout the day will help you lose weight:

 

1. Healthy snacks help keep your appetite under control

 

2. Gives you energy when you hit those mid-morning and midafternoon slumps.

 

3. Your body is telling you something, you need to eat!
