Here are a few snacks that are low in calories and can support your weight-loss eating plan.

Greek yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is an absolutely delicious and a wonderful snack to have. It is a good source of protein and can help curb cravings. Keep this snack in your refrigerator and be sure to keep to your portion size.

Popcorn

Who doesn’t love popcorn? Popcorn is high in fibre and can help you to feel full for longer. It takes just a minute or two to prepare and is a tasty but light snack to enjoy. Try to make air popped popcorn to reduce calories that you would otherwise be taking in from oil or butter.

Soup

Opt to have broth-based soups instead of rich, creamy ones. Creamy soups tend to be higher in calories as they contain more fat than the broth-based alternative. Having a broth-based soup before the main course of your meal or even as a snack before mealtimes can help fill you up. You may find that the portion size of your main course will have to be reduced, in order for you to feel comfortable. This can help keep your calorie count down.

Consult a professional

Always consult a dietitian if you require assistance in putting a meal or snack plan together. In addition, you should always check with your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet, especially if you are under medication or suffer from any medical condition that has an effect on your diet.
