Healthy Snacks

Thursday, 15 May 2008

It is often snacking that causes people to gain the most weight.  People tend to focus on putting together a healthy, balanced breakfast, lunch and dinner but then when cravings hit during the day, the high calorie snacks come out.  If you find yourself eating too many or the wrong types of snacks, then this is a great article to get you back on track and start losing weight.  

The most important thing is to come up with a few different types of healthy snacks that you like, and have them readily available to eat during the day.  Below are some good suggestions on healthy snacks that are quick and easy:

  • Small can of tuna or salmon in spring water
  • Lightly spread muffins and crumpets
  • Dried fruit and unsalted nuts
  • Natural yoghurt and a teaspoon of honey
  • Fruit smoothie
  • Vegetable sticks with low fat dips
  • Fresh or canned fruit
  • Vegetable soup
  • Low fat carrot or banana cake
  • Fresh fruit with yoghurt
  • Row of dark chocolate
  • Raisin toast or pancakes with mono-unsaturated or poly-unsaturated margarine, or fruit spread  
  • Wholemeal wheat biscuits or rice cakes with honey or low fat cream cheese
  • Water (it is a great idea to have a glass of water before having a snack)

Try and stick way from:

  • Potato Chips
  • Doughnuts
  • Cakes (other than low fat carrot or banana cakes)
  • Soft Drinks (try diet variety if possible)
  • Fruit Juice (has as many calories as soft drinks)
  • Biscuits
  • Chocolate bars & lollies
emotional eating, low GI foods, diet pills
