Weight Loss: Do You Graze All Day to Rev Up Your Metabolism? Read This! by Michele Gelman
As a general rule, I discourage snacking during my programs. Why? Isn’t grazing all day long the way to do the following?
- Keep your metabolism revving
- Keep your blood sugar even
- Avoid hunger pains
Snacking, even on non-sugary foods, gives the body a constant supply of blood sugar so it does not need to switch into fat-burning mode. Burning fat is detoxifying and slimming. By burning fat we eliminate toxins and prevent them from accumulating. Fat is a slow fuel that gives sustained energy. Many of us have lost the ability to burn fat effectively from grazing all the time.
