    The more snacks that people eat each day, the more calories they consume according to a new study from Goteborg University in Goteborg, Sweden. Normal weight men, 1, 2, 3 or more snacks per day: +253 calories, +327 calories, +584 calories per day

    Normal weight men who ate one snack per day consumed 253 calories more than normal weight men who ate no snacks per day; two snacks per day increased calorie intake by 327 calories per day; and three more more snacks per day increased calorie intake by 584 calories per day (3091 calories versus 2507 calories).

    Normal weight women, 1, 2, 3 or more snacks per day: +168 calories, +282 calories, +312 calories per day

    Normal weight women who ate one snack per day consumed 168 calories more than normal weight women who ate no snacks per day; two snacks per day increased calorie intake by 282 calories per day; and three more more snacks per day increased calorie intake by 312 calories more per day (2329 calories versus 2017 calories).

    Obese men, 1, 2, 3 or more snacks per day: +330 calories, +448 calories, +830 calories per day

    Obese men who ate one snack per day consumed 330 calories more than obese men who ate no snacks per day; two snacks per day increased calorie intake by 448 calories per day; and three more more snacks per day increased calorie intake by 830 calories per day (3669 calories versus 2839 calories).

    Obese women, 1, 2, 3 or more snacks per day: +156 calories, +345 calories, +640 calories per day

    Obese women who ate one snack per day consumed 156 calories more than obese women who ate no snacks per day; two snacks per day increased calorie intake by 345 calories per day; and three more more snacks per day increased calorie intake by 640 calories per day (2964 calories versus 2324 calories).

    Conclusion: Snacking needs to be considered in obesity treatment and prevention

    “Sweet, fatty food groups were associated with snacking and contributed considerably to energy intake,” the authors concluded. “Snacking needs to be considered in obesity treatment, prevention and general dietary recommendations.”
