Snack Attack: When & What?

There are so many reasons why a healthy snack is great for you.

Planning two or three snacks a day, every 2.5 or 3.5 hours, can make the metabolism more efficient. Our body best performs when the blood sugar is kept level.

If the blood sugar in your body drops too low you will become lethargic and/or experience increased hunger. If it goes too high, your pancreas secretes insulin. Insulin brings the sugar level back down but this is primarily done by converting the excess sugar to stored fat.

Not snacking throughout the day will mean your blood sugar level will drop, “bad” snacking will cause a spike in your blood sugar.

The selection process –
When selecting a snack it should roughly be between 100 to 200 calories. Try carrying the pre planned snacks with you. Stock up on healthy snacks. Limit your consumption of high salt, fat and sugar foods
