I read the banner article about fifteen ways to deal with snacking. We are sheltering in place with an adult autistic man who really loves his groceries. He will eat an entire block of cheese, a whole bag of chips, or more if left to his own devices. We, his parents, are on Noom and trying to continue with gradual weight loss. So managing meals and snacking has been a challenge. What we have constructed seems to be working, so far, a fairly structured approach to eating that includes planned snacking. Breakfast to lunch is probably the longest snack free stretch other than sleeping and involves a long after breakfast nursing of black coffee. In mid afternoon we give him two cups of popcorn and have some ourselves if so inclined. Around six is the cocktail hour and the single drink, perhaps topped up once, is accompanied by either cheese or hard salami. Either way he gets 2-3 slices and we each take one or two. The only other snacking is unscheduled and is either a piece of fruit or a very small bowl of whatever salad is in the fridge. Today there are two: fennel/celery/onion/hard salami/cheese/citronette and garbanzo/cucumber/tomato/onion/feta/oregano/rice vinegar. How are you handling snacking?
