What Kinds of Snacks?
Although what you eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner matter, so do your snacks. Best items to snack on are bananas, a cup of blueberries, an apple, a pear, 2 oranges or peaches, and even 2 whole cups of grapes. Although all of these are perfect, it’s important to choose ONE of them. Variation is very important for snacking as well. Consuming a banana every single time might not be the best idea.

When Should I Snack?
The best time to consume your first snack is about 3 hours after breakfast. We recommend this because it’s the perfect timing; not right after a meal but also not starving you! After you consume your lunch would be the best time for your second snack. Three hours again the perfect time.
