Last time I lost a lot of weight snacking was part of the diet. This time I only snack if I feel the need between meals and it seems to work better. I agree all of the factors are making us fat, plus the fact that we are encouraged to be sedentary, passive participants in tv, video games and computer work. Convincing myself I'm an active person is part of the struggle. If I get back into couch potato mode I'll regain what I have lost. Mary
