Consider the following scenario: It's 11:30 AM, and you are extremely hungry. Today, the boss has planned a big lunch at the local buffet restaurant. That's the good news. The bad news is that lunch is not until 2:00 PM. do you:

  1. Wait until 2:00 and then binge on everything at the buffet?
  2. Grab a low calorie snack, and then enjoy a normal meal at the buffet.
If you answered B, good for you! Snacking is a great way to prevent the binge eating that always leads to weight gain. Snacking has another important benefit: it helps you maintain a higher energy level throughout the day.
