10 Healthy Snack Ideas (all under 150 calories)

strawberries_with_yogurtAre between-meal bites undermining your weight loss efforts? Use this guide to 10 healthy snacks to guide your choices.

For many, their midday munchies, nighttime noshes and bedtime bites are adding excess calories that can derail your healthy diet. In fact, national studies show that snacking has truly become a “fourth” meal because snack calories add up to 25-30% of total calories. That’ sup significantly from the 1970s, when we didn’t snack as much–and were a lot thinner too.

To help, try some of our 10 slimming snacks under 150 calories: They’re calorie-controlled, nutrient-packed and provide enough protein and fiber to help curb your appetite.

Try them in place of junk food snacks and they’ll help you peel off pounds. If you want to win at losing, be sure divide your calories between three main meals and two snacks–one before lunch and one before your evening meal.

Happy snacking!
