7 Snacks for Losing Weight

7 Snacks for Losing Weight

To snack, or not to snack?

Many people feel that snacking between meals will just cause us to take in too many calories…

But others say that it helps us to eat less when it comes to meal-time.

The first statement might be true when these “snacks” are, in fact, big or unhealthy meals instead of actual snacks. But the second case may be equally true – IF the right approach to snacking is taken… How do we snack healthy? The first step is portion control. You should not be eating a full-size meal. After this, make sure your snacks are healthy and plan between your meals. This will help you get from one meal to the next without becoming too hungry and then over-eating. To make this process easier, try meal- and snack-prepping ahead of time so you don’t give in to the sudden urge of an unhealthy snack when the hunger strikes. Meal prep will also help to make sure that you stay within your daily calorie limit.

Here are the best snacks to eat when trying to lose weight…

  1. Trail Mix
Buy a pre-mixed pack or make your own. Just mix dried fruit, raisins, nuts, and seeds and put it into a snack-size serving to take along with you wherever you go. Nuts and seeds have been seen to promote weight loss and are full of nutrients. Almonds are your best bet, followed closely by pistachios. Just don’t eat too much, as they are high in fat. When buying pre-mixed packs, make sure it is not filled with sugar and other nasties. When buying pre-mixed packs, make sure it is not filled with sugar and other nasties.
  1. Baby Carrots and Hummus
These are a healthy replacement for chip-and-dip. It is great for snacking while watching the game, or to eat at your desk while you are working.
  1. Yogurt With Berries
Yogurts and berries are a great way to start the morning, and an even better way to finish a meal! They can be used as a healthy snack or a healthy dessert. Berries are high in water and fiber, giving you a sense of fullness without adding too many calories.
  1. Apple and Peanut Butter
This is an awesome sweet and crunchy snack that is packed with fiber and gives a great energy boost! Although peanut butter is high in calories, it has been shown to control hunger and increase weight loss. Just remember to use it in moderation. About 2 tablespoons should do the trick. Look for a natural peanut butter that is low in sugar and sodium.
  1. Whole-Grain Crackers & Cheese
A few crackers with some good cheese or even low-fat cream cheese are a great snack. Make sure that you don’t overdo it since even whole-grain crackers can be quite high in calories.
  1. Healthy Energy Bar
Energy bars are some of the easiest and most convenient snacks, but you have to make sure that you choose the right ones. Look for something made out of “real” ingredients like raisins and oats. Make sure that it does not exceed 150 calories, and also no more than 15g of sugar.
  1. Popcorn
Air-popped popcorn, not the type that you get at the movie theatre, can be a great low-cal snack. Not only does it keep your tummy from rumbling, it actually contains a fair amount of fiber, as well as a little bit of protein.
