Healthy snacks under 150 calories

Hunger management

Hunger management (ការគ្រប់គ្រងភាពអត់ឃ្លាន)

Experts recommend eating every three hours in order to hold off hunger.

"I find patients of mine who eat every three hours do a lot better at removing weight and maintaining that weight loss," accredited practicing dietitian Kate Di Prima says.

"Regular snacks prevent big gaps between meals, which tend to make you overeat at the next meal because you're so hungry. This approach also helps to control blood sugar a lot better and it tends to balance the diet as you don't have to rely on only three meals to meet your nutritional needs."
