We’ve all done it. Got up feeling great. Exercised and ate right, then, later that morning, we’re passing a vending machine and… boom! We lose control for just a second and down 200 calories in a sugary drink or snack.
Eating between meals good for us, if the snacks are healthy. So add these to your shopping list, and keep them handy during the day so when the urge hits, you can satisfy it in a healthy, but delicious way!
The 15 snacks we recommend for burning fat are:
Apples. They are satisfying, tasty, and provide flavenoids that fight fat
Cinnamon. Studies show that cinnamon can curtail your appetite. Other research on people who ate a teaspoon of cinnamon every day proved that they got sick less than those who didn’t!
Hot Peppers. Peppers give a short metabolism boost. And they wake you up.
Watermelon. Fills you up, but has very few calories
Eggs. Digest slowly and are low on calories. Boil one or two in the morning, and take it with you. Peeled and eaten with a little salt they make a great snack!
Vinegar. Some research indicates it can break down fat. Don’t get the crappy white vinegar though, that’s for cleaning bathrooms.
Milk. Digests slowly and keeps you full. A nice glass of milk is satisfying comfort food too.
Oatmeal. Whole grains and make you feel full. Don’t do the cruddy instant kind or microwave oatmeal though! Those are high in sugar. It takes no more than 2 minutes extra to make healthy, whole grain oatmeal.
Celery. Mostly just vitamins and water, but filling. Plus has a satisfying crunch.
Blueberries. Yummy and loaded with antioxidants, fiber, and yummy flavor.
Greek Yogurt. High on protein, low on carbs. But don’t eat from the container, measure out a serving or you can over do it easily.
Green Tea. Stimulates the metabolism. Try it without sweetener.
Ice Water. Your body expends energy to warm it up! And water is surprisingly filling, without adding a single calorie.
Almonds. Filling, convenient, and provide energy from healthy fats.
To your health and success!
