4 Healthy Snacks to Help Lose Weight Fast for the Summer
Summer is right around the corner, and many want to kick their weight loss into high gear right around this time of year. This can be challenging when you start to get cravings when trying to lose weight. If you do not have some healthy snacks ready, you are more likely to go pick up a bag of Doritos and ruin the results you are achieving. To prevent this from happening, here are our favorite 4 healthy snacks to help lose weight fast for the summer:
If you do not have any issues with dairy, we think string cheese is one of the best choices when you need a snack. It has only 80 calories per serving, 5 grams fat, and 8 grams of muscle-building protein. This makes string cheese our favorite option in our 4 healthy snacks to help lose weight fast for the summer.
Clementine oranges or “cuties” are a great sweet treat that will satisfy your sweet tooth while helping you lose weight fast. 3 baby oranges only have 105 calories and 0 grams of fat. These baby oranges are also great when mommas are trying to get rid of the baby weight after pregnancy.
They are a little bit higher in sugar, but the fruit fiber balances out the sugar’s glycemic load on the body. Also, the body tends to process fruit sugars better than other types of sugar.
Apples and Peanut Butter
Apples with Peanut Butter are a great snack that tastes amazing and keeps you full. Make sure you are using natural peanut butter to reduce the sugar you take in.
1 serving only has 150 calories, 11 grams of fat, and 5 grams of protein to build your muscles.
Baked Sweet Potato Chips
My wife and I love to snack on chips! Baked Sweet Potato chips are a healthy option for those who want something crispy and savory.
With only 103 calories per serving, 2 grams of fat, and 19 grams of carbs, you can be satisfied while not breaking your diet. With a little bit of pink Himalayan sea salt, these are divine!
These take a bit more preparation than the last three snacks, but they are well worth the time and effort. Make a big batch, so you have some for the week!
