Experts recommend not skipping meals or eating too few calories earlier in the day

If you are trying to lose weight and otherwise improve your health, you may already be mindful about what you eat during the day.

You might skip breakfast. At lunch, you may opt for a salad with lots of veggies, no croutons and low-fat dressing – on the side, of course.

Then, three o’clock hits.

You’re incredibly hungry and craving candy, sweets or chips. You finally cave, eating a candy bar or other treat.

By 6 p.m., you’re tearing the kitchen apart, snacking on anything you see.
