If you fail to curb those cravings you will find that losing weight and reaching your weight loss goals will become an impossibility.
Of course eating fruit is a good idea the next time you are feeling peckish between meals, but eating them everyday can become boring after a while.
With these following snack suggestions, you can help kick those cravings to the curb and help ensure you reach those goals that you have set yourself.
#1: Oat biscuits
If you have a sweet tooth, but don’t wish to ruin your weight loss efforts by reaching for a chocolate bar then I suggest that you try eating a couple of oat biscuit instead.
These biscuit are low in calories, so you can eat them when you are feeling hungry without any guilt.
As with all biscuits you will still need to make sure you eat them in moderation.
#2: Boiled egg
A boiled egg is the perfect snack food as it is full of nutrients, in particular protein.
Protein is important for weight loss as it is slow to digest, so can help fill you up and keep you feeling fuller for longer.
You can eat a boiled egg on its own or as part of a salad, just watch what dressing you use.
Nuts make an excellent snack as they can help fill you up. They are also full of nutrients and good fats that could aid your weight loss efforts too.
When choosing nuts to eat as a snack it is best to avoid the salted varieties and again eat with moderation.
While you may not think of popcorn as a healthy snack, after-all you only tend to eat popcorn when you are at the cinema when it is covered with butter or salt.
You could also just carry fresh corn around as a snack too. It is full of vitamin C that will also offer numerous health benefits.
#5: Dark chocolate
Dark chocolate is perfect for those with sugar cravings, and can also help with your weight loss efforts too.
It contains flavonoids that offers numerous health benefits including weight loss and the lowering of dangerous cholesterol levels.
Soup is filling, especially a vegetable soup as both the vegetable and water content will fill you up without having to consume too many calories.
Just stay clear of creamy soups as these are possible going to be fattening.
#7: Fruit juice
While water is probably the best thing for you to drink, fresh fruit juice is also considerably better for you than a caffeinated soft drink.
Just make sure when drinking fruit juice to avoid those with added sugars and to drink in moderation as the natural sugars could also cause weight gain if consumed in excess.
