Not so long ago, one of my employee complained: No diets do not work! So I do not eat anything, but still not losing weight. You do not think that she is cunning, she really does not eat anything, not counting … yes, cake, ice cream and cookies. Is this food? 😉
Such people make me laugh: skipping the main meals, and on the move snacking on candy with a cup of coffee, they believe that they don’t eat anything and need to lose weight in 3 days! But it was not there.
Even during the diet breakfast, lunch and dinner should be required. In addition, there should be snacking. But correct and healthy. Which ones? Here are some options that I have tested.
Bananas. For some reason, many people do not eat bananas, considering them to be high-calorie. However, this is not entirely true – one medium banana contains only 100 kcal. For comparison, the same number of calories contains 2 candy Cow. But I don’t know about you, but 2 candies are not enough for me, but a banana is quite capable of satisfying hunger. Bananas also contain potassium, which helps keep blood pressure normal.
Sunflower seeds. Raw pumpkin seeds – just a storehouse of minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, as well as vitamin K. And sunflower seeds contain omega-6 and folic acid. And they are great for a snack.
Nuts contain healthy fats. Hazelnut helps to cope with chronic fatigue syndrome. Almond is considered the richest nut in the amount of nutrients, besides, it has a positive effect on the health of hair and skin. And walnuts are useful for the prevention of cancer.
Yogurt natural with cereals. It contains beneficial carbohydrates and proteins, which provide energy and prevent sudden jumps in blood sugar.
Dried fruits. They contain vitamins, microelements and dietary fiber. Figs, for example, cleans the blood well, and dried apricots have a positive effect on the bowels. In addition, a small amount of raisins, dried apricots, figs or prunes will help to easily satisfy the hunger that has arisen when it is still far from lunch.
You can diversify your snack with any fruit, in which there is a large amount of vitamin C and the right carbohydrates that give the body energy. You can eat an orange, peach, apple, pear or berries.
It seems that chocolate and diet are incompatible concepts. However, three squares of dark chocolate will not add extra pounds, but they will help get rid of bad mood and chronic fatigue. If you, like me, an incorrigible sweet tooth, do not completely forbid yourself a sweet, otherwise you can break. But without fanaticism! Chocolate squares should not be 100 g bars;)
Do not neglect snacks, it is only important to choose the right one. There are so many tasty and healthy foods that you can safely snack on during the diet. A saucer of candies will add us unnecessary kegshek, but a saucer of berries or fruit salad will improve health without interfering with losing weight. And what kind of candy or a cookie can be compared with a sweet strawberry or a juicy peach ?!
And what do you use as a snack?
