Why do we snack?
We all need food to survive, it not only gives our body the fuel it needs to perform day to day functions but just to stay alive we need food. We need to eat at least three whole meals a day, but some of us are in excess of the recommended limit. Some of us snack between meals and it may be okay as long as these snacks are not a meal by themselves. What is also important is what are we snacking on.
Stress is named as the top reason most of us snack. Stress caused by our hectic lifestyle or an emotional situation we want to avoid.
When we are bored and have nothing to do to make time pass by. It's basically a way to entertain our mind when we have nothing to do. It could make us eat uncontrollably and we may not even realize it.
It may even be a habit we have developed over time. Yes, in our subconscious mind we may be habitual to snacking and we may not even know what we are doing. It becomes apart of our daily routine.
When we are at a party and a tableful of snacks are laid out. We are not mindful of what we eat when we are celebrating and having a good time.
