It is suggested to always consume snacks in between the meals to boost energy levels and to avoid staying hungry. But the blunder is caused when people do not realise which snacks they have to consume and the right amount. Snacks are meant to be consumed only to gain energy and not to fill tummy and therefore they should not be over 200 calories. People end up consuming packets of crisps, box of chocolates, bowl full of nuts as their snack and end up consuming more calories than loosing them.
