on my desk this month

I’m one of those people whose bedside table has been taken over by a towering stack of books. (Currently an early Brontë, a beginner’s guide to meditation, and the latest Man Booker Prize winner.)

It turns out munching on something healthy, like a small apple with string cheese, a few hours after breakfast and then again after lunch can keep your blood sugar steady, meaning you won’t overdo it at your next meal, says registered dietitian Melissa Rifkin. In fact, dips in your blood sugar level could explain why you feel tired and cranky by midafternoon.To make sure your craving is coming from your gut, busy your mind before you hit the vending machine. “Take a three-minute walk, then assess if you’re still hungry,” suggests Joan Salge Blake, R.D.N., author of Nutrition & You.
