6 healthy snacks that will help you lose weight

You don't have to starve yourself


You will want to stay away from some foods and stop some habits that may prevent weight loss. While dieting, you will be trying to cut the amounts of food you eat. But since you will still get hungry, you will need some snacks to help you keep moving.

Check out some healthy snacks you can count on when trying to lose weight:

1. Fruits

Fruits are packed with vitamins, dietary fiber and minerals. Eating them will leave you feeling refreshed and energized as you await your main meal. You could for instance eat an apple or a piece of water melon.

2. Fresh juice

Just like fruits, fresh juice is a healthy snack also that will not only quench your thirst but dehydrate you as well. You could make the juice yourself or get it from a fruits and juice store.

3. Popcorns

The best thing is that you can make popcorns at home and store them cooked. So each time you feel hungry, you get some instead of ordering a burger. They are rich in fiber and thus give you a filling effect.

4. Almonds

Almonds are rich in healthy fats, proteins and fiber for satiation. Studies have shown that almonds suppress appetite and will thus help you lose weight.

5. Dark chocolate

Chocolate is probably the last thing you would have on your mind when trying to lose weight. But besides lowering your blood pressure, dark chocolate is also known to help with weight loss.

6. Boiled eggs

Being on diet doesn’t mean you to kills yourself with all the tasteless foods. Eggs are quite high in cholesterol but they are a good source of protein. Plus, they will keep you full for some hours which is a good thing during weight loss.
