“Protein and fiber are nutrients that regulate insulin and therefore are longer-lasting sources of energy,  they also help make snack foods more satisfying, so you’ll put the bag back in the cabinet rather than tossing it cause it’s empty.

Good morning everybody.  As we grow old, we love to eat everything.  Even if we don’t feel hungry, we eat a lot.  The metabolism of an adult person gets slow.  Even they eat many, they will not feel full for some time.  That’s why most of adults were all fat. An article written by Joan Sumpio says that ..”You are What You Eat.”  This simply means that your physical looks tell you that  how much you eat.

As obesity and over-weight issues take their toll on people, many are seriously considering to go on a diet that will help them have slimmer bodies. Others are not necessarily getting into very rigid programs but are simply adopting a three-times-a-day diet plan, meaning no snacks in between main meals to cut off calorie intake. But snacking isn’t really bad at all. In fact, mini meals several times a day can help manage hunger and reduce bingeing. Eating healthy foods for snacks like low fat cracker and fruits may stop you from taking second or third servings at your next meal, dramatically cutting main meal calories. The key to incorporating snacks into your weight-loss program is to plan them with variety, moderation, and balance in mind. Here are some of the best snack picks:

•Breads or crackers made with whole grains. These foods are beneficial because foods made with whole grains have all the important nutrients of the entire grain seeds. They have fiber, thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), folate, iron, magnesium, and selenium. In looking for foods with whole grains, you can look for any of the following in the ingredient lists: Amaranth, Barley, Buckwheat, Corn, Millet, Oats, Quinoa, Brown Rice, Rye, Sorghum, Teff, Triticale, and Wheat.
