Your snack should consist of fruits, vegetables, nuts or even some type of dip like hummus or a nut butter. Your snack should be in the timeframe of two to three hours before lunch or an hour to two hours after lunch and again have your snack nice and Light some carrots with some peanut butter, or 2 ounces of almonds with some celery or even a smoothie.
