•Fruits and vegetables. They can fill you up without giving you so much calories. But yes, it could really be boring to munch a piece of fruit just anywhere. Here is what you can do: prepare a mixture of sliced fruits (apples and banana), add a drop of lemon juice, and put it in a sealed container. At home or in the office, make strips of cucumber and turnips, then sprinkled with a pinch of salt.

• Nuts can also be a good “in-between meal nourishment.” Nuts consist of monounsaturated fats which can give that feeling of fullness. Aside from its fiber content, it also contains magnesium, manganese, protein, zinc, and phosphorus.

•Low fat and calorie foods. When choosing healthier snacks, do not only look at the fat content but also the sugar and the carbohydrates. A food may be low in fat, but high in sugar and vice versa.

• Low sodium foods. Be conscious of the sodium content of snack foods. When given several choices, don’t just go for one with better taste. Good health is not achieved by foods that have one good ingredient. You should eat foods that do not have negative ingredients like sodium (could be from salt or other baking ingredients). For example, delete crackers from your snack lists, no matter if they are advertised as healthy. This is especially true with those that have more than 100 mg of sodium per serving size.

Although snacks can really help cut down main meal caloric intake, it can also be a source of excess calories if you do not monitor total caloric intake. As we are all being encouraged, read the labels for calories, good nutrient contents, and negative ingredients. Snack healthily.

Good morning everybody.  As we grow old, we love to eat everything.  Even if we don’t feel hungry, we eat a lot.  The metabolism of an adult person gets slow.  Even they eat many, they will not feel full for some time.  That’s why most of adults were all fat. An article written by Joan Sumpio says that ..”You are What You Eat.”  This simply means that your physical looks tell you that  how much you eat.

As obesity and over-weight issues take their toll on people, many are seriously considering to go on a diet that will help them have slimmer bodies. Others are not necessarily getting into very rigid programs but are simply adopting a three-times-a-day diet plan, meaning no snacks in between main meals to cut off calorie intake. But snacking isn’t really bad at all. In fact, mini meals several times a day can help manage hunger and reduce bingeing. Eating healthy foods for snacks like low fat cracker and fruits may stop you from taking second or third servings at your next meal, dramatically cutting main meal calories. The key to incorporating snacks into your weight-loss program is to plan them with variety, moderation, and balance in mind. Here are some of the best snack picks:

•Breads or crackers made with whole grains. These foods are beneficial because foods made with whole grains have all the important nutrients of the entire grain seeds. They have fiber, thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), folate, iron, magnesium, and selenium. In looking for foods with whole grains, you can look for any of the following in the ingredient lists: Amaranth, Barley, Buckwheat, Corn, Millet, Oats, Quinoa, Brown Rice, Rye, Sorghum, Teff, Triticale, and Wheat.
