Eating snacks during the day can help control hunger levels preventing overeating at meal times or later in the day.
Making sure to eat small amounts during the day (every 3-4 hours). Just like a machine we need to fuel our bodies in order for them to burn/run efficiently.

Homemade Protein Bar Recipe:
3 Cups Oatmeal ( Any variety, I used an apple cinnamon one that was good)

Dash of cinnamon
Mix until a sticky batter is formed (may take a few minutes)
Spread into the bottom of a Pam-sprayed glass or metal cooking tray (spread until even)
