But really, how can snacking help me loose weight?

An understandable question with an equally understandable answer.

Metabolism

Nutrients found in snacks help fuel your body in-between meals. They can give the body good things to run off of, or gunk that makes you sluggish and puts you at advantage for the entire rest of the day. Snacking between meals is not only good for you, but extremely important because depending on your level of activity, snacking may provide you the energy you need to keep your body making energy. Failing to do so continuously and starving yourself will cause your metabolism to slow down, making you more sluggish and more likely to have fatigue and gain weight unnecessarily.

Good, metabolic fueling snacks not only give your great energy at the time, but encourages your body to maintain it’s rate of processing and using energy; something essential for weight loss.

Digestion

As introduced above, snacks fuel your body in-between meals. The digestion of those snacks makes an enormous impact on how your body digests your meals later that day. For instance, a snack full of empty calories and inflammatory additives will irritate your digestive system, cause bloating, and add waste to your colon. When your body goes to digest your dinner, it will already be at a disadvantage and you are much more likely to get indigestion, acid reflux, and lower absorption of nutrients when you eat your main meals later.

Snacks that are easy for digestion and nutrition not only give your intestines a much needed break and relief, but they also encourage better nutrient absorption, easier energy conversion, and promote elimination of built up of waste in the colon.

Shedding toxins and waste

Being that snacks can be involved with improving digestion and metabolic conversion, it also has an effect on the present results of past body functions. Through enhancing the feasibility of the previous two processes, the body naturally will begin to expel those wastes and things that were built up from previous sluggishness. The body naturally burn up fat and either use it as energy, or dispel it as waste. During the process, the body will stop being inflamed, and will properly eliminate debilitating toxins and fats in the body.

How to snack with a purpose?

Timing

There are certain points throughout the day in which your body benefits more from certain foods than others. The general body processes at certain parts of the day can easily pair with the foods you eat to solidify your body’s naturally rejuvenating processes.

Morning Breakfast- Energy and immune support

Midday snack- Energy Sustentation

Lunch- Metabolic pillar, easy digestion, energy

Midday snack- Energy Sustentation

Dinner- Metabolic pillar, begin the refreshing/detox process @ end of day

Before Bed -Renewal, Detoxification or immune and digestion

By working with your body to do what it naturally does, loosing weight is easy as longs as work with the rhythm. Processes will sync up together and begin to loose those things which impede that process such as waste, toxins, and excess fats.

Composition

Thinking about the composition of your food and meals. You can do calorie counting; that works for a lot of people. I don’t know about you, but I can’t necessarily do that all the time. As a make-up for that, I think about the composition of my meals, kind of like a dietary plate guideline.

You don’t have to follow these to the tee, but you can use them as a guideline to help you develop your own rules.

Morning Breakfast- Energy and immune support

Midday snack- Energy Sustentation

Fruits (preferably dried fruit, it’s a little heavier) or Nuts
