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

I would think that one could recognize the sin of gluttony, by taking a look at their weight. If it's in the healthy range for one's height I don't think that person has a problem with the sin of gluttony. Of course, there are other reasons for weight gain.......some medications cause one to have an almost insatiable appetite, also thyroid problems can bring this about. Myself, I notice, I'm an emotional eater. I eat when I'm upset. Of course. when I'm REALLY worried about something.........over a period of days or weeks, I completely lose my appetite.

One more thing. gluttony occurs when we are eating a meal, our hunger is satisfied to the point of being really full & we continue to eat simply because it tastes good. I don't have a problem with this, but my husband does. Gluttony, like Sloth, seems to be a "forgotten sin."
