Good 100 Calorie Snacks to Enjoy

Eating smaller meals throughout the day has several positive impacts on your health and weight maintenance program. Whether following a structured weight loss plan, it is extremely important to focus on eating smaller meals throughout the day as a lifelong habit of health.


The Benefits:

1. As long as they are low-glycemic meals, your blood sugar will stay stabilized throughout the day . This will keep you from being hungry and your energy level will remain constant. According to the Mayo Clinic; eating smaller meals helps you stay on track.

2. Eating regular, small meals of healthy food throughout the day will help you consume necessary nutrients. Rather than going for the quick fix at a fast-food establishment, consuming healthy small meals will aid your weight loss and maintenance plan since your body will be able to get all better nutrition it needs to function properly. Experts believe that the body can only handle so much at one serving

3. Leslie Bonci, R.D., director of sports nutrition at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has noted that eating the same calories spread out over smaller meals four to six times during the day is supposed to raise the body's thermogenic effect, resulting in 10% more calories being burned

When you add exercise to the equation, your benefits are greatly increased
