Health Tip of the Day: In Order to Eat More, Eat Less

We have all seen those little 100 calorie snacks packs for satiating hunger with just a few calories. But do they really work? Some research shows that eating small amounts of carbohydrates actually spikes your blood sugar just enough to make you want a lot more. And then overall calorie intake is a lot higher. 

So instead of reaching for a light snack, try eating something with fat or protein, such as cheese or peanut butter, in combination with crackers or an apple. Although these might have more calories, they will help you eat less for the day by keeping you satisfied longer!
