Unprocess your food.
We often think we are reaching for a healthy snack when instead we may be adding calories without any real benefits. 100-calorie packs, 60-calorie yogurts, or fat-free options contain empty calories and leave us wanting.
Choose high-fiber and high-protein combinations for your snacks, and avoid processed snacks, sweets, chips, cereals and processed fruit. These items can be high in calorie (or only 100 calories) but lack the fiber and protein to make you feel satisfied. These foods can often be very addictive and leave you wanting more. Choose 1-2 healthy swaps to try this week- and let me know what you think! Soon your taste buds will adjust to real food and the processed snacks will seem greasy, too sweet, or too artificial.
