Is It Okay to Snack?
Our first nutrition habit is eating every 2-4 hours. In a recent nutrition meeting, a member asked, "Is it okay if I snack throughout the day if I don't have time to sit down and eat?"
The answer: Yes! Listen to Coach Ed's explanation and how to proceed.
You're following the habit if you're truly eating that frequently. From there, if you feel you have this habit under control, try to add protein to each meal going forward.
These are rules of the road. If having protein with each meal is hard, keep eating every 2-4 hours, and continue trying to have protein. Ask a coach or fellow community member for strategies to incorporate more protein and over time you'll crush the protein habit!
So your action step is to just eat every 2-4 hours. If you do that on a consistent basis, see which meals lack protein and try to add it. Nuts, eggs, chicken, beef, yogurt, cottage cheese are all great options. YOU CAN DO IT!
Remember, this is a lifetime process. Keep working at it and things will come together.
