There's not really such a thing as healthy snacking. You need to give your digestive/metabolic system, and especially pancreas and fat cells, periods of rest so they can return to a low baseline. Any eating will result in a release of insulin, which signals cells (especially fat cells) to store rather than release energy. Even if it's low-calorie or low-carbohydrate — the very act of chewing gets your digestive processes going, noticeably salivation and unnoticeably insulin and other hormones.

If you feel hungry between set mealtimes, try having a big glass of water or some plain tea or coffee. Because we get a large portion of our water requirements from food, feelings of hunger and thirst can get mixed up.

Also, hunger tends to come and go on its own anyway; you're actually more likely to feel hungry again soon if you eat a small amount of something which isn't actually an adequate meal.

I’m such an idiot. I accidentally put baking soda instead of baking powder in my pancakes. No wonder they weren’t fluffing up. :facepalm: Now they’re all salty, flat and blegh. This is what I get for cooking half asleep.

I usually just have one big meal and snack through the day. However I count calories to try not to overeat. It's work for weight loss so far. I weighed myself the other day and I'm down to 147 lbs.

Calorie restriction regardless of eating pattern or diet is almost always effective in the short term (losing the weight) but becomes increasingly less effective in the long term (staying at a healthy weight).

If you do start to gain weight again, or feel it’s harder and harder to keep to your restriction or diet, look into intermittent fasting / time-restricted feeding (TRF). :nod:

Loads of benefits for gut biome, metabolic function, neurological function, muscle growth and maintenance, sleep rhythm, etc,

Roast beef! Which I've had for the second time this week. Not because I love roast beef, but because I've been working on my beefstock/gravy recipe and nothing helps a stock like the dripping from a good roast beef joint. I've now done several batches and I think I've nearly nailed it. Rich, smooth and flavoursome.

The beef has come in handy as protein for my post gym meal. :drool:

Is that actually good? It sounds a bit much, especially depending on how much peanut butter there was.

Just a little bit of peanut butter. It tastes like a Reese's peanut butter cup.

I had a blueberry muffin Kit Kat today. It was quite yummy. Too bad it's only limited edition.
