Can I Have 'Free' Foods?

Ask Glen!

Q. Glen, I'm hungry at the end of the day. Are there any "free foods" I can eat?

A. Sometimes "free foods" are just what you need to get over that hump without adding extra calories. Sugar-free gelatin, drink mixes and chewing gum are a few items you can have.

Raw salad is a great filler and has a small number of calories. Water, sodium-free club soda or seltzer with a twist of lemon may satisfy you until the next meal.

You can also try spreading out your meals. If you eat five to six times a day, you may find yourself not as hungry and more satisfied. It can also help speed up your metabolism. You can take items from your meal plan and use them as snacks. There's no set time when you have to eat a particular food.

Since each meal plan is calculated according to your personal profile, just follow your plan and you'll be right on track. Don't forget the substitution list. It can give you alternatives when you feel like having something different.

Any personal health questions or problems mental or physical or before starting any diet or exercise program. Please consult your physician !

Wishing You Great Health!
