Healthy Snacking Tips

Dieting often leads to cravings which, when ignored, can lead to mindless snacking or diet binges. Mindless snacking calories can add up quickly and cause a lot of frustration when your expectations for results are not met.

Even just a little bit of over-snacking throughout the day can make a relatively large impact on your overall week. Becoming more mindful of your habits is a great start.

Weight loss is a calories game, and too many snacks can add a source of extra caloires if you aren’t careful.

Do You Need to Snack?

If you’re having a hard time waiting until your next meal and can find snack options that won’t destroy your calorie goal, it might be worth it. But if you’re finding it’s really just becoming a mindless habit, you can skip the snacks altogether.

Easy Snacks Under 150 Calories Per Serving

As long as you maintain calorie control, snacking is not a bad habit.

The key is to find options with relatively low calories for a high volume of food – meaning more bang per bite! You can also aim to get more protein, fiber, and healthy fat to help keep you feeling fuller longer.

How to Change Bad Snacking Habits

A wonderful way to hold yourself accountable is to keep a journal of your “temptation” snacks and the things that you would normally have just a little bit of. Write these down every time you come across them and convince yourself to either have something else or skip the extra snack.

Add the calories “saved” by not consuming these products (ie: half of a Chocolate Chip Complete Cookie = 180 calories). Daily, Weekly, or Monthly add these “temptations” up and realize just how much the little things add up! It will help you stay accountable for your decisions as well as motivate you to stay away from those little temptations.

Another great habit is pre-portioning your snacks. This means counting out the chips before you start eating them. This will prevent you from over-eating, and it helps you enjoy each chip because you only get so many.

The food industry is making a lot of money by doing this for you. It only takes a few tries before it becomes second nature, and then you won’t find yourself elbow deep in a chip bag when you only intended to eat a few.

When done properly, snacking gives you the much-needed boost to make it to your next meal without all the extra calories. When done incorrectly, it can leave you feeling frustrated and confused.

The key tip is to start paying attention to everything you are putting into your body. Plan for your meals as well as your snacks. And don’t assume that your healthy meals compensate for your unhealthy snacking.

49 Super Easy & Healthy Low-Calorie Snacks to Enjoy in 2022

strawberries

SnackNation

Counting calories isn’t just challenging; it’s also shocking sometimes.

Who knew you’d been eating three times the recommended serving size of almonds?

Well, we’ve got your back! Here are some tasty and healthy low-calorie snacks you know you can enjoy when you’re looking to “spend” any amount of calories from 50 to 300.

Want to become a better professional in just 5 minutes?

Around 50 Calories

1) Radishes + Mustard

radishes

  • 1 cup sliced radishes: 18 calories
  • 2 tablespoons mustard: 21 calories

Total calories in this snack: 39 calories

A root vegetable (often eaten as a mere afterthought in salads), the radish makes a strategic snack when you’re counting calories. It’s satisfyingly crunchy with a peppery flavor that tastes much bigger than its caloric load. Dip radish slices in your favorite mustard, which usually only has a few calories per tablespoon, to enjoy a boldly flavored snack for under 50 calories.

2) Celery + Hot Sauce

  • 1 large celery stalk: 10 calories
  • 1 ounce of hot sauce (we used sriracha as a baseline): 28 calories

Total calories in this snack: 38 calories

One major secret to successfully cutting calories is to figure out how to enjoy the flavors you love on healthier “vessels.” So if you absolutely love eating chicken wings, then try your favorite hot sauce on crispy celery sticks instead of fatty chicken wings. An entire large stalk of celery has only 10 calories, so you have plenty left to “spend” on hot sauce.

Note: Most hot sauces are extremely low in calories. If you’re springing for wing sauce, be sure to check the label for calorie content.

Sweet crunchy green bell peppers make amazing dippers when you’re counting calories. They have far fewer calories than even the healthiest chip out there, and they give your body potassium and vitamin C. To create a low-calorie snack with big flavor, slice up pepper and eat it with one ounce of plain greek yogurt seasoned with a pinch of curry powder.
