Why would you only eat one snack a day?

Multiple snacks deliver a lot of calories to your body.But isn’t there anything tasty that you can eat without having to watch your weight?

  • Cooked egg
  • Fruit drinks/juices such as a BreakerTM or OptimelTM.
  • Fruit Salad
  • Liga/sultanaTM
  • Cup a soupTM

How can you discover for yourself whether a snack is healthy or not? If you want to know what a good snack is, the easiest way is to simply look at the back of the packaging. A person needs about 2000 calories per day. So if you see on the back of a large bag of chips that it contains 500 calories, just take a small bowl of chips. This way you do not take in 500 calories but, for example, 50 calories.
