Snacking is healthy if you restrict your portions. Don’t deny yourself the joy of snacking instead measure your servings and read the nutrition labels to know your caloric intake. What most of us do is create a couch crater by plopping on the furniture with a bag of crisps or tit-bits and gorge like a ravenous vagrant. Try decreasing your snacking frequency by avoiding food that is dense in sugar instead have a high nutrient content so it fills you up for longer durations and doesn’t leave you wanting more.
