We’ve all been through this—while working through the night or watching TV at home when we suddenly get unusually hungry. This is when you go for the monsters—order a pizza, grab a bag of potato chips or a cheesy sandwich. This is followed by a feeling of guilt, bloating and the works. But guess what? There are many ways to satiate your hunger by reaching out for some low fat snacks that are healthy yet delectable. Wondering what we’re talking about? Read on…
 

Fruit

Fruit

If you’re truly want a guilt free food, grab a fruit! Fruits like watermelon and strawberries contain as much as 92 per cent water per volume and aren’t calorific. With such foods you will feel full without having to feel bloated.

 

Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate

Ever thought chocolate could be the answer to your hunger pangs? But remember that we’re talking about dark chocolate here. That’s because it’s filled with antioxidants and also reduces the risk of heart problems. Dark chocolate contains fewer carbohydrates—something you don’t want, especially if you’re trying to lose weight.

 

Apple slices and peanut butter

Apple slices and peanut butter

If you can’t eat your fruit all by itself, a good idea would be to mix it with proteins. Cut a few apple slices and smear just little peanut butter on them. Apples are low in calories as well as fat while peanut butter might be calorific but it’s also high in fiber—something that will keep your colon healthy and regulate blood glucose levels. So much better than the pizza you were going to go for at least!

 

Popcorn

Popcorn

Now this one’s a very healthy low-calorie snack. That’s because a cup of popcorn has just about 31 calories and 0 grams of fat. It’s also a whole grain that has 1 gram of fiber per cup. Moreover, popcorn will also give you B vitamins, which promote energy production so you don’t feel sluggish after consumption as opposed to a burger that makes you lazy.

 

Pistachios

Pistachios

These nuts are lower per-nut in calories as compared to other nuts. The better news is that they’re also high in protein and fiber. Want more reasons to have them? They’re rich in Vitamin B 6 and provide 18 per cent of daily requirements. Happy healthy snacking, girls!
