Healthy Snacks to Lose Weight Introduction

When you’re attempting to lose weight, you may think that you’ll never ever have the ability to have another treat as long as you live.  However. there are a number of snacks you can eat to drop weight and feel wonderful.

For any sort of fat burning plan to be successful, you just can’t feel like you’re being deprived.  So, to be successful, you need to be able to eat healthy snacks that make your diet work better for you instead of hindering it.

In your switch to healthy snacks, it’s best to begin with a fresh start. Set aside some time to clear out your fridge and pantry to remove all non-healthy meals. This will achieve two things:

First, you’ll remove anything that might be a temptation for you when you’re having a weak moment.   And second, you’ll have the ability to make better choices in the moment you are hungry, not just for yourself, but for the rest of your family as well.

Exactly what sorts of snacks can you consume that will not wreck your diet? You might be surprised at the selection of options available:

1. Fresh fruits and veggies. Your healthiest treats are going to be those that are as close to nature as possible. This means keeping fresh fruits and veggies on hand all the time.

- So, enjoy those fruits that will offer you with the sweetness and the crunch you long for, but without all of the processed junk!

- Also, you can vary your fruits depending on the season to mix things up and save money.

- Apples, grapes, oranges, etc. are very important for a healthy diet whether you’re trying to lose weight or not. Avocadoes are one more excellent option.

2. Dried fruit can be a fantastic snacking option for those attempting to reduce weight. Raisins, Craisins (dried cranberries), apricots, prunes and additional dried fruits will provide you the pleasure of eating something sweet and yet they can be enjoyed in reasonable amounts.  I recommend sun-dried fruits whenever possible.

3. Potato chip alternatives. If one of your weak points is potato chips, there’s a healthy choice that’s simple and will give you that crunch.  Just wash and cut up some veggies into convenient snack sizes and put them in sandwich bags so they’ll be ready to go when you need a quick bite.

- Baby carrots or carrot sticks
- Celery sticks
- Broccoli
- Cauliflower
- Cucumber
- Tomatoes

4. Nuts and seeds are additional healthy snacks you can easily eat when you’re trying to drop weight. They’re full of nutrients your body needs to have, and can be great selections.

5. Get some bread made with sprouted grains instead of baked.  Then, instead of putting butter on in, put some organic coconut butter on it.  Delicious and healthy.  You can also try organic peanut butter on sprouted grain bread.

Selecting healthy treats rather than those loaded with unhealthy fat and calories will certainly make dropping weight a lot easier. When you feel like you need to have a treat, do not deny yourself.  Select carefully and you’ll feel great and still slim down!

In conclusion, I want you to know that I lost weight and now maintain my weight without dieting or starving myself.  I have these healthy snack on hand whenever I need so I can eat whenever I want.  Healthy, natural foods can be consumed in larger quantities than processed foods and still result in less calories consumed overall.  Make a decision today to change your lifestyle and start saying yes to healthy snacks.

    Hello Mark, reading your blog is such an inspiration. I have for some time been struggling with getting back in touch with healthy ways and working out.

I know all about the healthy ways of eating and I try stay on top of that, but I need to really start moving again. Thanks for such a great blog.
