Erika’s Tip – Plan Healthy Snacks
Always hungry? If you’re eating meals of complex carbohydrates with fiber, lean protein, and some fat, plus drinking enough water, it’s normal to feel hungry every 2.5-4 hours.
Planning healthy snacks and meals can help you avoid snacking on unhealthy options or eating large portion sizes at meals. A healthy snack could include fruit, yogurt, vegetables with hummus, a small handful of nuts/seeds/dried fruit, a bowl of high fiber cereal with milk, or a snack/protein bar with minimal ingredients (like Rx bar).
Limit snacks to 60-200 calories, depending on your other meals, activity, and weight.
