resolutions to lose weight or to be healthier. and, a lot of them get hung up on snacking. should they snack. or, not snack and what should they choose? it's the number one question i get in emails is about snacking. i'm a big fan of snacking on. not all of the can use the same eating plan. i am definately a three meal, two snack kind of girl. some, are 6 meals. it's important to plan your snacks like you would your meals. so, alot of time people get in trouble because they don't plan their snacks and then they get hungry and head to the vending machine. sheila: then they eat everything they can get ahold of. whitney: yes, the chips and candy to satifsy their hunger and cravings. you need to plan your snacks like your meals. i actually eat the same snacks every day. so, it's something you don't have to be overcreative for and whatever fits in with your lifesytle. let's start with liquid calories. a lot of people hit the vending and they start drinking. but, it's a lot of empty calories. you don't get a lot of nutricial value with the drinks. so, all the calories go right to your waistline. so, look for things that are low calorie or calorie free. but, always of course trying to drink more water. all of us could always use more water so try and get more water in your day helps you make you full. sheila: how much water? whitney: i would say at least 8 glasses a day. but, i usually drink double that. i drink a lot of water during the day. but, most people could afford to drink more. so, when you're planning your snacks to eat throughout the
6:00 am
least 2 foot groups. because then you get a nice balance of a protein and carb. the protein will keep you full and the carbohydrates will give you energy. and, try to have fiber to try and keep you full. but, it's not rocket science. just try and have those two food groups to try and balance things out. so, when i plan a snack i try to do an apple and a string cheese. two food groups. then, i get the protein and the carbs and the fiber as well.sheila: you have some examples here. whitney: yes, i have tradition ants on a log, some luncheon meat, try to have a fruit and a vegetable. that way you can try and get your 5 to 9 servings a day. sheila: and, here's some packs of tuna. whitney: yes, and i find things that you traditionally do for breakfast work really well for snacks too. these oatmeal packages are not just breakfast anymore. they can go with with you very easily nowdays. sheila: great tips, thank you so much whitney, and make sure you drink the water too. if you would like more information about today's centsable health
