What Snacks can a Low Carb Dieter Eat?

Eating low carb snacks every few hours each day is healthy. Did you know that? To keep your blood sugar level steady and maintain a steady energy balance you need to eat about every three hours.

Most Americans have learned to eat three big meals each day. This is not the best way to plan your eating if a steady flow of energy is your goal. Low carb snacks throughout the day not only give you more energy, they help you digest your food and aid in burning fat. Large meals with lots of sugars and starchy carbs actually prevent proper digestion and fat loss.
