Mid-Afternoon

Saffron Road Crunchy Chickpeas (Pictured)
Two ounces of these non-GMO falafel-flavored legumes are 240 calories, offer both protein and carbs to satiate you, and are low on the glycemic index, keeping blood sugar stable.

Wonderful Pistachios
These nuts are moderately high in protein and zinc, which is important for building testosterone. Protein spends more time in the stomach than carbohydrates or fat, keeping you satiated throughout the day. "Men only make testosterone at night when they're asleep," says John La Puma, M.D., author of Refuel. "By eating pistachios in the afternoon, you're satisfying hunger now and preparing your body for the next day."
