Healthy weight loss snacks can often be the key to sticking with your diet instead of throwing in the towel.
If there’s one way to sabotage your weight loss efforts, it’s to declare that you will never again eat between meals. The same goes for the lofty idea of giving up all the foods that you love. While you may have the willpower to grin and bear it for a couple days or even a few weeks, you will eventually cave and overload on empty calories.
This doesn’t happen because you’re weak minded or lack motivation. It happens because your mind will focus on the things that you can’t have rather than the healthy foods that you should enjoy. Choosing healthy snacks can be challenging, but you can win the battle with weight loss by simply replacing the snacks you love with healthier options.
There is no one-size-fits-all snack, because we have different taste. Make snacking a pleasure, not a punishment. If you keep some of these healthy treats on hand at all times, you will always have a good-for-you option.
What happens when these healthy weight loss snacks just won’t satisfy your taste buds or your mind? Just allow yourself a small treat and then get right back to healthy eating. You’ll probably find that the healthy options are so satisfying that you start to lose your desire for the fattening, sugary foods that only make you crave more.
Remember! It's snack time -- not dessert time.
Consider breaking the habit of snacking while watching television or out of boredom. If you must be chewing on something, choose something that satisfies the need to chew, like crunchy fruits or veggies.
