I never let myself get hungrier than a seven out of 10. That means I snack a lot on well-balanced mini meals between 150 and 300 calories. That could be a smoothie, eggs and toast, PB&J, or, of course, a Picky Bar. I’ve found that if I eat more often, I actually eat less, because I don’t turn into T. rex at night, scouring the kitchen cupboards for every morsel of food to make up for starving myself during the day.
