I cannot stand a day without having my snacks or merienda. Even I had a heavy meal I still crave for food especially in the afternoon. I can't resist to take snacks for my tummy is asking for it (,"). You take snacks or merienda as well? If not, mind to tell why?

I do take meriendas, I eat whenever I feel I'm hungry. I eat depending of what I feel I crave for, like hamburger, bread and fried egg or those which can be bought on CARINDERIA's (food stalls) around the neighborhood. I also can be good at chips, instant noodles and juice for a drink..

I feel instead of eating 3 big meals one should eat 5 small meals as it it good for digestion as food is absorbed better and it also increases oue metabolism which helps in weight loss. And you won't feel craving for food that much. And if you have to snack then eating fruits it is healthy and provide nutrition, don't go for junk food they add empty calories.

Yes, just like you...I can't also take it without having my snacks in the afternoon. I'm just really a snack lover although I have my full meal during dinner time lols.

Unfortunately, I have to have my junk food snacks, lots of times in the afternoon and at night, but sometimes just at night. If I try to eat a larger meal or an extra meal or have a healthy snack such as fruit, that might work for a short time but then I start having the junk food snack in addition to the extra meal or larger meal or the fruit.

I'm afraid I'm a milk chocolate addict and can only kick it for short periods at a time, especially if it goes on sale. Then I think I'm stocking up, but end up eating more. It is close to being an if it is in the house it is gone type of thing.

Merienda or snacks gives additional energy to keep us going, isn't it?

I eat three meals and two snacks in a day. During merienda, I eat dried or fresh fruits, my favorite sandwich/hamburger, nuts, iced tea and smoothies. I need to eat merienda to get me through the time before dinner comes.:) I still need the nourishment of food to get me going with my work and my run in the afternoon.
