Snacking and Energy Balance
Snacking is prevalent, increasing in frequency and accounts for approximately 20-25% of daily energy intake. Dr Mattes reviews the health effects of snacking and mechanisms by which snacking can promote positive energy balance and weight gain. He identifies nuts as highly satiating, and part of a healthful diet without posing a risk for weight gain.
