This is an easy question : that's not a snack, that's a meal. Remember, that there is no rule about how many meals you can eat. I eat four, but one of them is an egg, another is frequently a protein shake. The thing that makes it a "snack" is that it's unplanned, not the size.

Weight gone for good

I started at 265 lbs. After a combination of No-S and Shangri La, I got down to 219. (that's me record high and record low.) I got lazy and dropped the diet, and climbed back up to 245. (gained 15) The remaining 20 never came back. It's gone for good. Permanent weight loss. That's over five years. D...
