In any weight loss attempt it is important that you take note of the number of calories you are consuming.
Calories are a unit of energy found in food and if you want to lose weight then you need to ensure you burn more than you consume.
If these calories are not burned then they will be converted into fat and stored on your body.
Often you will feel the urge to snack between meals, yet you should not reach for the chocolate or crisps as there are healthier options available.
Snacks that are low in sugar, but high in protein are the best options.
