Is it possible to eat snacks and lose weight?
Some people say that snacking between meals only causes us to overshoot our daily calorie allowance, but is that actually true?
This might be true when these “snacks” are actually just big meals… and also if these snacks are all sorts of unhealthy things. But the opposite can be true the right approach to snacking is taken.
How do we snack healthy?
The first step is to make your meals a bit smaller – and healthier! After this, plan healthy snacks between your meals that will help you get from one meal to the next without becoming too hungry. To make this process easier, try planning your meals ahead of time so that you don’t grab the most convenient unhealthy snack you can find. This will also help to make sure that you stay within your daily calorie limit.
Some of the best snacks for weight loss are
- Trail Mix
You can buy a pre-mixed pack or make your own by mixing dried fruit, raisins, nuts, and seeds and putting 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.

- 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.
- Yoghurt With Berries
Yoghurts 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 also high in water and fiber, giving you a sense of fullness without adding too many calories.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
