In-between-meals/snacks with Mealsizer®

Besides lunch and dinner, that you eat with the Mealsizer measures, you also need to eat a healthy breakfast and 2-3 snacks/in-between meals to reach estimated calorie intake for a day when eating with Mealsizer®. This is so that you feel long time saturation all day. Don’t skip any meal, then you’ll be hungry! Feel free to eat fruit for snacks, possibly supplement with something rich in protein such as cottage cheese or yogurt.

The snacks/inbetween meals during a day with Mealsizer should together provide 15-20% of the daily total energy intake. For a woman with normal physical activity and an energy requirement of 2,100 kcal/day, this means that the snacks/inbetween meals (2-3 per day), should contain on average 150-200 kcal/snack.

If you want to lose weight with Mealsizer, you should avoid buying home chips, sweets, soft drinks and coffee bread. If you are invited to coffee or goodies: Take a small, small bite. Confess your weakness for a particular food! Eat something more healthy: Replace sandwiches with hard bread and soft cheese. Replace ice cream with a low-fat smoothie. Pre-peeled carrots can be good to have in readiness when you get the urge to chew on something.
