I love to snack. I bet you do, too. Yet, some 60 percent of us are overweight including 30 percent who are actually obese. Another 10 percent have Type 2 diabetes, a preventable and ruinous disease that stems from inactivity and poor nutrition. I fear that snacking is the reason for a good deal of those bad statistics. The following posts may help you to have your snack and maintain your good health.
The problem is that we are eating badly and not exercising enough. But, that doesn’t mean that we have to stop snacking. You can do it and still maintain and even lose weight.
I have written about snacking from the first days of the blog. Below are some links for you to explore about the subject:
