Most people are used to sticking to a certain meal schedule: tomorrow, lunch and dinner. However, hunger can still appear during the day. A snack in this case is the right choice, but you can only afford three short meals. The publication NGS42 writes about this in more detail.
Nutritionist, Ph. D. Irina Borodina believes that the number of snacks per day depends on many factors: the time of getting up, going to bed, the number of meals.
“The right time for snacks is until 17:00, then only dinner. If after dinner you feel hungry, you should not have a snack, but look for a mistake during the day: a late lunch or skipping it, a lack of complex carbohydrates or fats, a lack of sweet taste, etc.,”the expert says.
