I usually have something every couple of hours. I am not talking about huge snacks or even huge meals but I spread my calories throughout the day, eating up to bedtime and making sure to eat the first thing in the morning. I am big on practicing portion control when it comes to meals and snacks. In fact if you go to the search discussions, you can put in "snack attack" and find a discussion I started on what others and I snack on… low fat cheese, yogurt, breakfast bars, handful of nuts, etc. I don't obsess over carbs but I do watch them.

Sometimes if I feel like a few crackers a piece of cheese or maybe a piece of fruit I might have it a couple hours after a regular meal.
