If you follow a nutritious low-carb or ketogenic diet, you shouldn’t need to snack. Unless you have hypoglycaemia issues, up to three main meals a day should be enough.
Here are a few simple rules:
· Dont eat unless you are hungry, even if it means that you will skip a meal. In fact, once you get keto-adapted, you will find that intermittent fasting (skipping meals) is easy.
· If you feel hungry and need a snack, it means that your meals were not nutritious enough and you should increase your portion sizes. Lack of protein will make you hungry, so make sure to eat enough of it.
· If you want to keep hunger at bay, eat real food: eggs, meat, fatty fish, non-starchy vegetables, fermented foods such as souerkraut, and some raw full-fat dairy.
