If you pay attention to the snacks you keep on hand, you can actually use them to get leaner. No, they’re not diet pills that will magically shave pounds off your physique—they’re simply healthy foods that will go a long way toward staving off hunger and preventing you from gorging at mealtime.

 

#1: Mixed Nuts

All nuts are great to eat, with different ones having different essential nutrients. They have healthy fats and protein and are exceptionally filling. Grab a handful, eat them nice and slow, and you’ll keep your body in fat burning mode and be able to coast to your next meal with ease.

 

#2: Fruit

Basically all fruit is great for snacking. Fruits tend to get a bad rap with dieters because they say there’s too much sugar. The sugar in fruit is much slower acting than the sugar in grains and has way more nutrients to keep your metabolism high. This makes it a no brainer which source of carbs you should be reaching for. The cool thing about fruit is most fruit is really easy to prepare and take with you. No cooking necessary. Try to get locally grown organic if you can.

 

#3: Prepared Meats

You always need a source of protein and when you are away from home it gets hard to find a healthy one.  Keeping on top of preparing meat/seafood at home and bringing a lunch kit becomes imperative or you may end up with bad food choices. Also, protein keeps you full for a long time. Doing this one thing will save you a ton of extra calories.

 

#4: Kale Chips

In 20 minutes or so, you can bake up some delicious chips made from kale that will fill your need for something salty with a nice crunch! As an added perk, they’re low in calories and extra high in nutrients.

 

#5: Fresh Veggies

Fresh veggies has to be on this list somewhere. The nutrients in fresh veggies are so high and so needed that you can eat as much as you want and it just helps with overall health and higher metabolism for fat loss. The more you eat the better; excluding the high starch vegetables such as the potato family, parsnips and plantains.

 

#6: Boiled Eggs

It doesn’t get a lot more ordinary than boiled eggs, but snacks don’t always have to be exciting. A few boiled eggs have lots of protein and will keep your body in fat burning mode and a lot closer to your weight-loss goals. And with some frank’s red hot or tabasco sauce, it’ll have a flavor as satisfying as it is filling. On a side note, did you know Jalapenos and cayenne pepper increase your metabolism?

 

#7: Protein Shake

Another snack that will fill you up with fat burning fuel is a simple, classic protein shake. Start with a scoop, or two, of high quality plant based protein powder, and add water and ice. It’s quick, it’s simple and it’s effective. Keep protein powder in your lunch kit ready to go for a back up.

 

Remember that fat loss comes as the result of a consistent, challenging exercise routine that’s paired with healthy eating habits. You can’t achieve the body of your dreams simply by eating a certain way – exercise is an absolute must.
