Great Low-Fat Treats from the Fall Harvest


Fresh Pears, Pomegranate and Apples

The fall harvest offers a bounty of low-fat, healthy snacks at a good price. If you are concerned about your diet and/or want to shed some extra pounds, be sure to check out one or more of the following treats.

Pears

A medium sized pear has about 98 calories and 4 grams of fiber. The fiber content not only helps your digestive system work properly but also gives you the "full" feeling that will prevent you from grabbing an unhealthy treat later on in the day.

Kiwis

Because kiwis are quite small, you will probably want more than one for snack. The good news is that eating plenty of kiwis will not impact your waistline. Kiwis contain only 46 calories each. Additionally, is has been estimated that a serving of kiwis (which comes to about two kiwis) contains over 100 grams of Vitamin C, over 5 grams of fiber and plenty of potassium and copper.

Pomegranate

Half a pomegranate has 72 calories and 3.5 grams of fiber. Pomegranate has also been known to boost the immune system, offer protection from certain types of cancer, improve circulation and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Pumpkin

A cup of pumpkin cubes contains about 30 calories and is rich in Vitamin A. There are plenty of ways to prepare this tasty vegetable, so try out a few recipes to see which one you like best.

Snacking does not have to be an unhealthy pastime. The above mentioned produce offers a great alternative to low fat treats that often contain more sugar and sodium than their non-low fat counterparts. As you include more fruit and vegetables in your diet, you will notice a difference in your weight and overall health and know that eating right is well worth the extra effort.

My relationship with Metabolic Research center began Feb 2010 when I weighed 182 lbs and had high blood pressure. I lost a total of 69 lbs and 72 inches. It has been 6 years and I continue to maintain my weight. I owe my continued success to MRC and all the great classes, especially yoga and the continued support that I receive from the staff. I have learned that food is nothing but fuel for the body and just as with your car you need to give it the right fuel in order for it to run proper. Follow the program and it is possible to loose the weight and maintain it. Nothing tastes as great as healthy feels!
