Did you know that one snack-sized bag of potato chips has about the same number of calories as an apple and one cup of strawberries and one cup of carrots with low-calorie dip?
When trying to lose weight, one of the important points to consider is eating fewer calories than you did previously. But this doesn’t mean that you necessarily have to eat less, just smarter. Filling up on healthier alternatives can satisfy your hunger while still monitoring your caloric intake.
Consider some of these healthy options with 100 calories or less next time you’re hungry for a snack:
- 2 cups raspberries
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 medium-sized apple
- 1 hard-boiled egg
- 6 ounces fat-free yogurt
- 1 handful roasted peanuts
- 1 stick string cheese
- 1/4 cup fat-free pretzels or 5 pita chips with 2 tablespoons hummus
- 2/3 cup whole grain cereal with 1/4 cup fat-free milk
