  1. Are Snacks Part of a Healthful Diet?

    Is eating between meals a way to sabotage your weight loss or keep the metabolism fires burning so you lose weight more effectively?

    That's the question posed by US News & World Report writer Katherine Hobson.

    She notes, "It used to be that someone who wanted to lose weight was advised to stick to three square meals a day. For adults, at least, snacking was considered an unnecessary source of extra calories, and if you were hungry between meals, well, tough; you'd just have to wait for the next one. Nowadays, it's a rare diet plan that doesn't include planned snacks."

    It seems snacking is good, however the size of the snack plays a huge role. An appropriate snack in a typical 2,000-calorie-a-day diet is about 150 to 200 calories.
