Snacking through the day

by Flat Tummies |

To eat or not to eat. Many research on daily eating has confused us about the time gap to be given between meals. Some state that three well-balanced meal is the way to go for a healthy life. While others strongly advise small meals five to six times a day and then there is intermittent fasting. We agree with what suits your body as each of us is made differently and what works for one person may not work for you or me. The most important is discipline and being mindful of the ingredients, nutrition, and quantity of food.

The saying ‘Breakfast like a king, lunch like a common man and dinner like a pauper ‘is God’s word for all you health-conscious people. Snack healthily in between these meals and you have everything going your way. Eating every 2-3 hours helps to improve your metabolism and helps you lose weight too. While for others it's important to give the body enough time to eliminate toxins and repair itself. So not eating for a 12-16 hour window helps to improve metabolism and reduce toxicity. It also keeps your sugar balance steady and you tend to be energized throughout the day. Another important thing to keep in mind is to keep yourself hydrated. It is absolutely necessary to drink 2-3 litres of water daily at regular intervals.

Eating at small intervals keeps you feeling full, from feeling tired and then you are unlikely to binge at mealtimes. Now don’t take this opportunity to eat oily, fried or calorie-loaded foods. They may be easily accessible to you but they will only sabotage your route to a healthy, happy you. Eat a small salad of sprouts, some almonds or even fruit between meals and drive those hunger pangs away. Make your snack a combination of lean protein, fibers and good carbohydrates. As eating the same meal everyday bores you, so is it with snacking. Keep your snacks different and interesting and you will find yourself looking forward to these small breaks longingly.

Now, if you are too lazy (read busy) to pack yourself a midday snack before you leave home for the day, not to worry; we have the perfect solution for you. Our Flat Tummies protein bars and flaxseed cookies will do the job. They are a blend of nuts, fruits and interestingly vegan. They do not use refined sugar or dairy products. They are healthy, delicious and totally guilt free; a combination that you will not find too readily in the market.
