Healthy Snacks for Weight Loss

There’s one enemy that has the ability to destroy virtually any diet: snack cravings. But don’t despair: with these snacks you can feed your cravings and still keep on track for weight loss.

Edamame

These immature soy pods are a great snack. High in protein and high in fiber, they help you feel full and stay full for longer. Eating them from the pod prolongs your snack, and gives you visible remnants, which some researchers say makes it feel as if you’ve eaten more.

Air-Popped Popcorn

Air-popped popcorn is one of those regular snack foods that doubles as a diet snack food. Just make sure you’re not eating too much, and lightly salt it with no butter so that you’re not introducing too much extra fat.

Greek Yogurt, Berries, and Honey

This is just the poster child for a great weight loss snack formula: healthy fat, fiber, and antioxidants with a touch of sweet to make it feel indulgent. There are many variations on these snack parameters. Experiment and find your own.

Apples Plus

Apples aren’t really a magic food, but adding them to your diet will “magically” help you lose weight. That’s because they have water and fiber that helps you feel full and stay full. Pair with a healthy protein (such as walnuts or cheese) to extend these benefits even further.

Veggies and Hummus

What’s more indulgent than chips and dip? That’s a whole lotta calories, and a whole lotta satisfaction from dipping and enjoying the texture and taste of the delicious combination. Veggies and hummus give you much the same satisfaction, but in a much healthier package.

Licorice

Didn’t think candy would be on this list, did you? Well, it is, because licorice has an appetite suppressant quality. Buy quality black licorice with a lot of licorice extract in it to make sure you’re getting the benefit.

Kale Chips

We’re not going to pretend that kale chips are actually the same as potato chips. But in many ways they’re just as tasty, and definitely loads better for you. You can make them yourself for maximum benefit or buy them premade—just check the nutrition information to make sure you’re really getting a benefit.

These snacks can help you overcome your cravings to achieve your weight loss goals. Of course, maybe you need more help than this. For professional weight loss assistance in Denver, please contact Med-Fit Medical Weight Loss Clinic today.
