Try to eat your snacks BETWEEN meals and for after dinner treats.  The key is to avoid getting hungry at all costs.  If you’ve been eating lots of refined carbs (chips, baked goods, bread, pretzels, etc) you will likely have some severe carb cravings as you change your diet.  STAY STRONG and grab some carrots!
