Top 5 Healthy Snacks for Weight Loss


Eating habits are very important when it comes to weight loss. And snacking is also part of a healthy and balanced diet. For this reason, it’s essential to choose snacks that support your weight loss process and provide the nutrients you need.

Most diets imply reducing the intake of calories, therefore eating less. However, this is not the main goal of a good diet. While eating less may be necessary, especially in the case of people who are constantly overeating, most diets actually involve eating smarter, not necessarily less. Very often, if you have a healthy and nutritious meal plan, following it will naturally result in reducing the quantity of food you consume. Such a plan almost always includes a good choice of snacks.

So, here are some healthy snack ideas, courtesy of Eat This, Not That:

  1. Yogurt and berries – this snack is meant to please your sweet tooth and provides a healthy and nutritious alternative to sugar-based deserts. For this combination, you can choose Greek yogurt, which is rich in calcium, and the berries of your choice, which will provide you with a healthy dose of antioxidants.
  2. Cottage cheese – this is a very versatile choice of snack, which can be enjoyed either with fruit or on its own. Its rich content of protein and minerals makes it a good snack recommendation for most types of diets.
  3. Pistachio – it’s perfect if you’re a fan of munching on something crispy while watching a movie, but you want to maintain your healthy habits and avoid the usual suspects – popcorn and chips. Pistachios are also a balanced mix of fiber, protein and healthy fats, being a great addition to your diet.
  4. Almond butter and fruit – while almond butter is rich in healthy fats and other nutrients, pairing it with your fruit of choice provides a delicious snack, that can compete with any regular desert.
  5. Hummus and vegetables – a popular choice of snack, especially in modern culture, hummus provides a healthy quantity of protein, while combining it with veggies ensures a high intake of healthy vitamins and minerals. Bonus: it’s also delicious!
