What if the fat doesn't get "burned" until the next day? Will you be any worse off?
I see your point. Thanks!

Which snacks could I eat between meals?
I always get hungry between breakfast and lunch, and between lunch and dinner.
Apple and almonds are safe snacks?

Almonds would be best.

The reason most people get hungry between meals is that they eat to many carbs. Carbs raise blood sugar which leads to a crash about 2-3 hours later which causes you to need a snack. The long term solution is to become a fat burner. Replacing carbs with fat will cause your body to burn fat for energy and you will no longer have between meal hunger.

If possible, snack on some protein and fat sources.
Nuts, like Stu said. My favorite are Walnuts.
But then there's dairy products as an example. I use quark usually as a snack if I'm hungry. But any protein should do well too.
Higher protein meals and snacks lower your ghrelin (hunger hormone if we put it simply) better than high carbo snacks. But I can't really seem the harm if you take a fruit or two as a snack either. It just might not be that effective.

I'd say most agree if you eat it and it works with you, eat it mindfully - timing is important. PUt butter on it, not that campbells mushroomn gravy. Even though it's delicious.

spend energy doing, less energy worrying


avoid seed and veg oils like your life depends on it


you know, even the best of us actually eat pizza and hamburgers too. I'm not among the best, but it's not a 100% rule. I've been guided on here and thru common sense to just make a change at a time form good habits. Good habits push out old ways.

This thread is about ready for a wrap up. I'm waiting for underwear to dry so I can go get some food

Plus, don't get too neurotic and don't change everything too hastely. If you worry and overthink every day what you can and can't eat, it's just a diet. And diets wont last long. We are talking about a permanent lifestyle change here, it's better to make it suit your needs. Make small and slow changes into better rather than crash and burn type of changes.

Plus, it's alright to have cheat days in your diet. Just make sure you can keep the amount of cheat days in control. I have once per week.
Thanks!

How about:

Put a single almond inside a prune, wrap with bacon, cook. Spanish tapas style!

Different nuts have different kind of positive nutrients, but all in all you can eat whatever you like the most. Walnuts I recommend because of the higher omega 3 -content. Cashews are good as well. I also like brazil nuts and of course hazelnuts.
