I usually eat a ton of yogurt with some cinnamon and stevia extract and end up feeling fine. However when I end up eating popcorn late at night (popped in coconut oil, doused in melted butter) I always end up feeling really shitty in the morning. (more)

It is healthier to eat meals with no snacks in between as this will give your digestive system a break. It will limit higher blood sugar (from carbs and protein) to after mealtime and ease the demands on your pancreas. It will also force your body... (more)

As long as you're eating during the window, and your calorie intake is the same, snacking and meals will yield the same result in my opinion. It's a feeding window.. FEED! :D

Why do you snack? What need does snacking fulfill for you? Are you actually hungry when you snack? If you're hungry, why not eat an actual meal, or just be hungry till your next planned mealtime?
