When you let too much time pass between meals, your blood sugar can peak and lead to an increase in hunger and a loss of control over your meals.
Consequently, according to nutritionist Patricia Restrepo, planning your meals for the day ahead of time is a good way to lead a balanced diet and not to be tempted by external factors.
In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner, intermediate meals or snacks are essential to keep your metabolism active and prevent said sugar spikes. Ideally, these snacks should provide half the nutrients of main meals. That is why these snacks should be smaller in terms of portion size but equally balanced.
