All right—so wrapping up this investigation of energizing MACROS (protein, safe carbs & good fats) would not be complete without talking about Snacks!
Keep it together with Snacks that give you energy—and help your waistline & good-feeling emotions, too.
When you Eat for Energy/PHD you may find that you need less (or even no) snacks than you did before you started eating this way. That’s because when you’re getting all of the Macro & Micro-nutrients that you need…your body stops “looking” for this nutrition in-between meals.
Pretty great, right?
And some days—you just will still want a SNACK. I personally do eat snacks when I’m hungry between meals. Mostly I’m in to “appetizers” bc we sometimes wait too long to start dinner. 🙂
Snacks are pleasurable and they make life nice! And they’re also a great time to enjoy FRUIT, too. So nothing wrong with some Eating for Energy Snacks.
Just a heads up that you may find yourself needing/wanting them less with this way of eating…which is GREAT for your digestion, and giving your stomach & digestion time to REST between meals (as Dr. Cate calls it—“time between meals”, the 4th Macronutrient)
Ok, first up…what the PHD authors like to call “Pleasure Foods.”
