Can snacking help or hinder your efforts toward Super Health?  Should I eat every three hours, every two hours, or perhaps not snack at all?  Is the standard “three square meals a day” sufficient for good health?

Snacking is so ingrained in modern culture that an entire industry has been built around it. Perhaps you missed National Potato Chip Day on March 14th celebrating the stunning statistic that Americans consume 1.2 billion pounds of potato chips annually. Can snacking help or hinder your efforts toward Super Health? Should I eat every three hours, every two hours, or perhaps not snack at all? Is the standard “three square meals a day” sufficient for good health?

What About Snacking Between Meals?

I have addressed this topic in various ways throughout this book. Some researchers have found an association between snacking between meals and obesity. By contrast, other researchers found that increasing meal frequency was associated with lower body weight in men, but not in women. Other researchers have also suggested that larger, less frequent meals increase the risk of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. As noted before, there’s really no consensus on the research.

While proponents of frequent snacking have some positives to point to, the truth is, the more times a day you sit down to eat a meal or grab a quick snack, the more times the door swings open to overeating. And the human reality is that, when given the opportunity, most of us choose to overeat. I’ve seen it occur hundreds of times to those who increase the number of times they eat every day. Most of us find it almost impossible to eat a small amount at a meal or snack, and it’s almost a given that our snacks will load on the calories.

How Often Should You Eat?

Dear Living Fuel Family,

A hotly debated topic among doctors, nutritionists, personal trainers, coaches, and mothers is the frequency of our meals.  While most of us are keenly aware that a crisp, organic apple is a better choice than a bag of potato chips, the timing of our eating is a subject that you’re not likely to find consensus.  Should we graze throughout the day?  Should we eat several small meals every three hours?  Should we eat three meals with no snacks or three meals with a mid-morning and afternoon snack?  A combination of all of the above?

Today on LivingFuelTV, I “weigh in” on the controversy from a lifetime of study. The practical information you’ll learn today is presented in depth in Chapter 13, Meal Frequency, Snacks, and Eating Speed, from my new book The Super Health Diet: The Last Diet You Will Ever Need! The book is jam-packed with practical tips on eating with wisdom and intent, supported by education. Tune in today and discover if your eating frequency matches your weight optimization and wellness goals.

Dear Living Fuel Family,

It’s that time of year again, the time that most children love and many parents cringe over: Halloween.

Even if you are not a fan of this holiday, you can use Halloween’s usual candy-fest as a “sweet” opportunity to teach your children lessons in health and nutrition.
