Healthy Snacks Help to Lose Weight

Research on snacking and weight loss is mixed, but some evidence indicates that more frequent meals, including snacks, could help control hunger and regulate blood sugar.

Mixed nuts

Nuts make a nutritious, satisfying snack with a balance of healthy fats, protein, and fiber. Linked to various health benefits, studies suggest moderate nut consumption may aid weight loss. Stick to around 1 ounce or 1/4 cup due to their calorie content.

Red bell pepper with guacamole

Red bell peppers boast high antioxidants, while guacamole is nutrient-rich. Combining 1 large red bell pepper with 1/4 cup of guacamole offers a nutrient-packed snack under 200 calories.

Greek yogurt and mixed berries

Greek yogurt is protein-rich and berries antioxidant-rich. Mixing colorful berries into yogurt creates a nutrient-rich sweet-tart taste.

Apple slices with peanut butter

Apples are fiber-packed. Healthy fats, plant-based protein, and fiber make peanuts a satisfying snack. Apples plus peanut butter make a creamy, crunchy snack. Just choose one with peanuts, salt, and no sugar.

Cottage cheese and fruit

Cottage cheese's protein and fat match the fruit's fiber for a sweet, creamy, and full snack. Try it with pineapple, papaya, or watermelon.

Celery sticks with cream cheese

Celery sticks with cream cheese are a traditional low-carb snack that fills you up. This pair makes a fiber-packed snack with crisp celery and creamy cheese.

Kale chips

Kale is healthful because it provides fiber, antioxidants, minerals, and less oxalic acid, an anti-nutrient that hinders calcium absorption, than most leafy greens.
