3 meals and 3 snacks fear

So I am new to bulimia help. I have been in recovery for 5 years, and I am at the stage where I am no longer bingeing and purging and I eat 3 meals a day. I know that I maybe don't have enough within these meals but the thought of adding 3 snacks is terrifying, I tried adding 2 and I wasn't hungry and I felt so much better when I cut them out. I guess I am at the point where i feel comfortable with my eating pattern, but deep down I know it could be better and i need to change but I am terrified by adding snacks in. HELP!

How about making this snacks

How about making this snacks really small? Like an apple or few pieces of grapes?
Just to make your organism sure that you deliver some food frequently ;)

Welcome! Just a thought - If

Welcome! Just a thought - If you feel comfortable with your current eating pattern and you haven't binged or purged in five years, then why would you need to add snacks? Maybe you've already re-balanced your body and the next logical step for you would be to move toward intuitive eating...

Thank you for your comments-

Thank you for your comments- really helpful, maybe I have rebalanced my body...I actually hadn't considered that at all! It would make sense though as I have been stable for over a year really in terms of my health issues i had and my weight. Thanks for the advice.
