    Little snacks between meals are fine. Carrot sticks and nuts can fill in that little void before dinner. Don't feel guilty!

    I am one of those people who constantly eat/ snack between meals.

    I never go for more than 2 hours without eating something.

    The difference is that I only snack on healthy, low calorie snacks that has a high nutritional value.

    The snacks I choose between meals not only keep me full between meals, but it also boosts my metabolism.

    I also drink a lot of ice cold water - about 2.5 liters or more a day. Ice cold water also helps to speed up my metabolism so that I can burn more calories (it really helps with weight loss).

    I am crazy about all fruits and I eat about between 5 and 9 portions of fruit a day. A portion of fruit is roughly 50 calories. So you can see why I can eat almost 9 pieces of fruit and still keep on losing weight.

    Some of my favorite low calorie, super healthy snacks include:

    * Fruit
    * Veggie sticks
    * Nuts
    * Fat free yogurt
    * Raisins
    * or even a few (2-3) whole-grain/wheat crackers with fat free cottage cheese and tomato/cucumber

    The trick is to eat at least every 3 hours and to stick to healthy, low calorie snacks (like the ones above). It boosts your metabolism and keeps you full and energized.

    I am guilty of snacking but I try to snack on healthy stuff like apples and grapes and melons. Sometimes, I snack on cheese straws
