Mid-morning snack–your diet’s demise?

November 29, 2011 at 11:59 AM 1 comment

That nibble you have between breakfast and lunch may be causing you to shed weight more slowly than if you were not having that snack. Research published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association found that women who have this snack lost 7 percent of the body weight, compared to the 11 percent that women who did not have the snack.

The researchers believe this may be due to the short time period between breakfast and lunch, perhaps making the snack more something you have out of habit rather than hunger.

Another tidbit from the study? Women who report snacking twice a day consume  more fibre than those who don’t snack twice or more daily.
