Maybe it's better to be on the safe side and not eat snacks at all.

You're right that it is very confusing.  An NO priest might tell you that gluttony isn't even a sin anymore, but depending on the trad priest you get he might tell you to go Ghandi and eat a piece of rice each day for the rest of your life.

To not eat snacks at all I don't think is the answer.  Gluttony is commonsensical.  It's about having too much.

That said, if you want to eliminate your snacks, do it as a penance, not as the status quo.  I don't really snack that much anyways, but snacks per se are fine.  In fact, snacks can very healthy if you are hungry but not hungry enough for a meal.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
