Today’s SHA-NANIGAN®️s So how am I supposed to determine the amount of snacks I should consume on a daily basis? Snacking the right way helps me stay fit and healthy during training for my upcoming races. I am a high energy person with a pretty fast metabolism. I actually think since I multitask so much, the calories come off me even quicker!

On the average, a runner is expected to take in body building food about six times a day and out of these number of times, three might be in the form of snacks. This is because the time to always sit down to eat a proper meal might not always be available and healthy snacks will serve as a very good substitute. I eat just after my morning workout.

  • Usually I consume a half cup of oatmeal, and a piece of fruit. That’s if I don’t include the brown sugar!
  • About an 2 hrs later I start craving lunch which is a substantial, like a salad with protein (chicken or shrimp)or a bowl of rice with veggies.
  • And if that’s not enough I hit round 3 and open up my cute little refrigerator that my team has filled for me and grab either some nuts with cheese, a chia pudding or some peanut butter with celery.

By the time dinner rolls around I have eaten up most of my calories and I am pretty full. I will eat a small meal and I usually sneak on a little sweetness for dessert.

Question: What types of snacks do you crave throughout the day?
