Snacking has gotten a bad rap for many years, with all talks about over eating and weight control. People have shamed the thought of fulfilling your hungry stomach and forcing you to wait till your next scheduled meal.
Well feel no more shame people, we are going to point out the pros to snacking and after you are done reading this you won't every think twice about snacking again!
Let us start with a few Pros from the experts at PopsugarFitness
Their list of Pros are:
- Snacking can fill nutritional gaps and boost your intake of fruits and veggies. This of course is only true if you are snacking on fresh fruits and veggies which I highly recommend. Peaches and cherry tomatoes are phenomenal this time of year and make tasty snacks.
- Snacking can keep your mood on an even keel, when you feel like your blood sugar is sinking it is easy to feel "low,"
- Snacks can help with appetite and weight control since they can prevent over indulgence at meals.
- Snacking, spreading meals and calories, might require less insulin and might reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
