Snacking can be extremely beneficial for weight loss, if done correctly. Snacking only acts as a barrier to weight loss when the foods chosen have been high in sugar, highly processed, high in calories, and lacking in nutrients.
The main reason for snacking is to prevent us from reaching a starvation state, so when we get to our main meals, we do not over eat. When our main meals are more than five hours apart, a snack is necessary.
When it comes to healthy snacking when trying to lose weight, we need to take into consideration the content of what we are consuming and how much we are eating.
Snacks high in fibre and protein and low in calories are what we should be eating. So next time you get that 3pm hitch and reach for your secret stash of chocolate, consider these seven tips for snacking when trying to lose weight.
