Snacks keep us over till the next meal. Balanced snacks and meals at consistent times during the day keep your blood sugar stable and keep you from overeating.
Healthy snacking include protein, fibre, and other nutrients that will keep your blood sugar in an optimal range. In contrast, low blood sugar causes exhaustion and makes you crave sugary or fatty foods.
We all need food to generate energy. Our body uses hormones that circulate in the blood to control our food intake.
Hormone levels change when we lose weight and are also the reason why most of us will regain the weight we lose.
Heart disease and strokes are the number one cause of death worldwide. However, almost 80 percent of all cases of cardiovascular disease is preventable.

However, scientists have consistently shown that humans use their entire brain throughout the day.
