End Winter Weight Gain With Healthy Snacking

Written by Kathryn Martyn, M.NLP


Continued from page 1

The idea with healthy snacking is that when hunger strikes (or what you think is hunger), no matter where you are you'll now have healthy snacks handy. No more having to buy a candy bar because you're famished. My choices for healthy snacks won't suit everyone, but that's fine. Choose other things that would work better for you. I enjoy things such as jerky, whole grain rolls or bagels, yogurts, and fresh fruits as I mentioned earlier. I almost always have an apple nearby.

The idea is that it's not that you couldn't wait, but what has forestalling your hunger done for you so far? It tends to set you up for later binging and out-of-control snacking. Eating a few healthy snacks duringrepparttar day can end that pattern once and for all.

Here's a plan: Think of one or two fresh foods you could carry in a big or small cooler and then do it. As I'm writing this I'm a little hungry and I'm starting to think about having a snack. I might eat an apple, a banana or some jerky because they are all within my immediate reach. That's far better than not eating anything now, but instead deciding to "wait it out," while I start thinking about cookies and cake and pizza and other fast foods I can grab onrepparttar 131360 way home.

Going all day in a hungry or denied state sets you up for late night binging and out-of-control snacking. You'll never be able to make up forrepparttar 131361 earlier deprivation. Why bother. I've never met anyone yet who got fat from eating too much fruit, so be brave and give this idea a chance.
