Healthy Snacks Aid Weight Loss

Asparagus Dish

Desperate to drop the pounds, you launched a healthy eating plan two months ago. Besides preparing more meals at home, you dutifully eliminated all snacks from your diet. Surprisingly, you’ve only lost three measly pounds. If you can relate to this disparaging scenario, adding some healthy snacks to your menu plan might be in order. Eating diet friendly snacks when you’re hungry can help you keep your blood sugar levels stable. And, you’ll be less likely to binge at mealtimes. Consider stocking up on the following snack foods during your next trip to the grocery store.


Nuts are packed with protein and filling fiber. They also contain heart healthy monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, and omega 3 fatty acids. Because they’re calorie dense, be mindful of serving sizes when consuming delicious walnuts, pecans, almonds, cashews, and other types of nuts.

Plain Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt boasts twice the amount of protein regular yogurt contains. When shopping for this trendy snack, stick with the plain variety. Flavored yogurts are often filled with mindboggling amounts of waistline expanding sugar. To liven up the taste of your plain Greek yogurt, consider topping it with:

  • Nuts
  • Cinnamon
  • Fresh fruit

Asparagus with Boiled Egg

For an interesting, tasty snack, pair asparagus with boiled egg. The fiber in the asparagus and the protein in the boiled egg will likely help you stay satisfied until your next meal. A boiled egg (with a whopping 15 asparagus spears) contains a mere 126 calories. But, it boasts five grams of fiber and 11 grams of protein.

If you’re like many dieters, you might feel eating a snack is a huge indiscretion. Thankfully, this mistaken belief couldn’t be further from the truth. Incorporating healthy snack foods into your menu plan might actually accelerate your weight loss. To learn more about the power of snacking, consider scheduling a free, initial appointment with a consultant at a Metabolic Research Center near you.
