Hunger makes us have different snacks between meals, and all these chocolate bars and cookies often cause weight gain. Experts suggest 6 snacks that will help us not simply keep fit but also lose weight by speeding up the fat burning process.
1. Apple and skim milk
Almost any fruit makes a great snack, but if you want a real treat, add a little protein. One large apple and a glass of skim milk equals 10 grams of pure protein, 5 grams of fiber, 200 calories.
2. Avocado with cottage cheese
Here is another combination of fruit and dairy products. Split the avocado into two, remove the bone, and add a teaspoon of cottage cheese. It is amazingly delicious and very useful – 200 calories, 9 g protein, and 7 g fiber.
3. Chicken sandwich
Wrap a little chicken with vegetables into a pita, cut into two pieces and eat in between breakfast and lunch, or lunch and dinner. Each serving contains 200 calories, 3 g fiber and more than 20 g protein.
4. Lentil salad with tomatoes and watercress
If a salad contains only 200 calories, it can be considered a useful snack and not the main course. This salad also contains 11 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber thanks to lentils and vegetables.
5. Asparagus and boiled eggs
A great and healthy combination. Asparagus is rich in fibers, and eggs contain natural proteins. Take 15 spears of asparagus (raw or boiled) and one hard-boiled egg. You get 126 calories, 11 g protein, 5 g fibers.
6. Cold green tea with mint
You can wash it down with a drink that contains no calories at all, but quenches thirst perfectly.
