The only snack I have, at night especially, is a PB Fat Bomb! If I'm going to have a snack, I try to have one with next to no carbs and lots of fat. Most of the fat bombs in the recipe section would fit this criteria, I believe. I know others who don't snack at all and never have anything after dinner! That doesn't seem to work for me!

I eat my food when fat-fasting divided 5 ways. When I am not fat fasting, these days I add a protein to two of those (and thus use two injections of insulin, and any correction needed toward the end of the day).

I think insulin users have to consider what works for them, depending on how the insulin affects them.

I also think some people not using insulin might consider how it affects their insulin production -- even though they do not necessarily see it: does snacking keep their personal insulin higher, making them hungry more often? Do they feel unsatisfied, thus end up eating more by snacking? Or does dividing the food up demand less insulin, and does knowing the next meal is coming sooner help them control their appetite?

I think it is an individual thing. We cannot propose either a mouse-like or a caveman-like model to adhere to, and demand that works. Keep an open mind, listen to your body, and read your meter!

I try to stay away from snacking and stick to three main meals and perhaps a LCHF dessert after dinner, which brings my FBS down the next morning. If I snack during the day, it makes it too hard to control by BS throughout the day.

To late to edit, but I wanted to add: PLANNED snacking seems to be the key -- if you have a program and eat specific foods, it can help.

If I go off-plan, even LC, it messes me up a lot. So for me, tiresome and time-consuming as it is, planning everything ahead seems to be the key.
