Eight Snacks Diet

This diet is perfect for those people who occasionally like to nibble all day long. Don’t forget-a snack isn’t supposed to be as large as a meal. The portions are designed to provide just enough food to relieve hunger. While you are snacking, be assured that day you’ll be eating a nutritious combination of foods.


Each day’s eight snacks will total no more than 900 calories. If you find yourself skipping one of these eight snacks, don’t worry about it. If you feel full, don’t eat. Save those calories.

One other diet rule: get into the habit of drinking plenty of water each day. If you can, drink eight glasses. This is in addition to any other beverages you consume. A multi-vitamin a day can’t hurt either.
