For anyone trying to lose weight remember this tip, have a healthy afternoon snack. Notice I did put the word healthy in there. We are not talking about cookies, chips, candy bars, etc. Make that snack something that is high-volume and low-calorie such as a piece of fruit or veggies. According to Melina Jampolis, M. D., an internist who specializes in nutrition for weight loss and disease prevention, this snack can actually help you cut calories. It only makes sense that if you have lunch between 11 am and 1 pm and don't eat dinner until 6 or 7 pm, you will be hungry when you sit down to dinner. When you allow yourself to get overly hungry, you will overeat! We don't need a doctor or scientist to point that out, we all know that from experience. So go ahead and have that healthy afternoon snack.
