Default snacky on maintenance

I wonder if it is better to inbetween meal snack on things like celery or carrot sticks or chicken soup or is it better to have fruit and crackers-sometimes i just want a salty vegetable-cuke or carrot - green pepper!

You can have whatever turns your crank!

It's up to you to find out what your balance is. You might be able to do it occasionally. You have to continuously experiment to see where your equilibrium is.

Default Re: snacky on maintenance

I was about to post the same question. My management guideline says

14. Snacks
If you get hungry in between meals, have some protein.

For example: processed cheese: mozzarella, cheddar, roquefort, brie, camembert or parmesan. Altenatively you could have some cold chicken, meat, yogurt or biltong (dried meat).

One week into maintenance, I have been alternating yogurt and crackers and cheese.

For maintainers out there what do you have for snacks? Do you follow this rule? On plan and even now, I get hungry between 4 and 430 pm. So I take a snack for fear of bingeing and getting out of control.

I have had many snacks of crackers and cheese, which I love, but for me I find I maintain my weight better if I snack on fruit, it seems to fill me up better

I usually have a couple of biscuits with a coffee mid morning (most days) ... then if I am hungry in the afternoon or after dinner at night I have a piece of fruit or maybe some crackers on their own or with cheese and/or tomato

But my management guideline says only one fruit is recommended (although so far I have been having 2 and it seems okay with my body) and it says you should eat fruit right after a meal. Okay, thanks for the replies, I was wondering if I am wrong in eating crackers for snacks.
