Snacking can be the downfall of all of your hard work. 

 

You need to register why you are doing it in the first place. 

 

Is it out of boredom?

Or are you generally hungry?

 

If you feel the urge to snack, have some water first. Wait 5/10 minutes then see if you are actually hungry or if it was boredom. 

 

I know for myself it’s often out of boredom that I want to snack. 

 

So try that first and see if that helps. But if it’s generally hunger then look to have some light snacks, but don’t go straight for the nuts, as nuts can be very high in calories especially if you want them to fill you up!

 

Personally, I would go for a small handful of Pistachios. 

More for the reason that you have to de-shell them. This takes up more time and allows your hunger hormones to come into play and give you that sense of feeling full. 

 

Other snacks could be:

  • Rice Crackers
  • Chicken or other meats
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Cucumber
  • Celery
  • Fruits
  • Protein Bars
  • Protein Shakes
  • Yogurt
  • Low calorie Jelly’s
