What Can I Snack ON

that won’t make me fat?

The Ideal Snacks

They  are rich in protein and lower in sugar. You won’t experience increased blood-sugar levels, so you’ll still burn fat. What you snack on and how often can make or break weight loss. Instead of chips and chocolate, try raw carrots, boiled eggs and capsicum. Dip them in low-fat natural yoghurt with a teaspoon of mustard and some chopped chives stirred through.

Caprese Salad

  • 50 grams mozzarella (sliced)
  • 1 large tomato (sliced)
  • 1tsp balsamic vinegar

 

Arrange alternate slices of tomato and mozzarella cheese decoratively on a serving platter. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper, spread fresh basil leaves over the salad, and drizzle with olive oil and the balsamic reduction.

What foods will satisfy my hunger?

The trick: foods high in fibre, such as wholemeal products, legumes and vegetables, fill you up.

The higher the energy density (kilojoules per gram) of a food, the less you should eat of it.

Good options: fruit, vegetables, salads and soup.
