12 Snacks That’ll Help You Lose Belly Fat
Most diet plans are bland and boring, leaving no room for snacks or food that you actually enjoy eating, and if you want to stick to a diet, you have to give yourself the psychological edge, with some options that make you feel like you’re, not on a diet. At all, your belly fat will only go down after you’ve stayed in a calorie deficit for long enough for your body to release its most precious fat stores that it just loves to hold on to so this list of 12 tasty low-calorie snacks will not only fill Your stomach but more importantly, they’ll satisfy your mind, which isn’t often overlooked yet very crucial piece of the fat loss puzzle and the first snack that packs plenty of flavor to satisfy your taste buds and that crunch feeling is roasted seaweed. Roasted seaweed has recently really blown up, so it’s now available in most supermarkets already prepackaged and flavored.
So you don’t have to cook these yourself to actually enjoy them, simply choose from a variety of flavors like teriyaki sesame or my absolute favorite flavor wasabi pop it open and enjoy your snack. One serving of the snack only contains 25 calories, and that includes one gram of protein about one gram of fiber and two grams of fat between the flavor and the crunchy texture. The seaweed will satisfy you, while adding virtually negligible calories to your diet and you’ll. Be surprised how many pieces of seaweed you can eat before you hit 25 calories or especially, if you have two servings totaling 50 calories.
Another awesome aspect of eating seaweed is that it contains many antioxidants as well as vitamins and minerals. Like vitamin a c e and iodine, even though seaweed isn’t necessarily going to be the most filling snack, it helps you feel like you’re cheating, without costing almost any calories. Next, we have a sweet snack that can replace ice cream while being virtually calorie. Free popsicle sticks.
These can be made very easily by using a popsicle ice tray and a sweet tasting, caloriefree beverage like crystal light or flavored water enhancer. You would simply pour the sweet beverage into your popsicle mold or even a regular ice tray and then freeze it if you are using a regular ice tray, you’re going to have to tightly cover it with plastic, wrap and then insert toothpicks in into each flavored ice. Cube when done correctly, these are truly satisfying and they taste just as good as an italian ice, but instead of taking in 60 calories along with a bunch of simple sugars, you’ll take in close to zero calories with zero sugar.
Another prepackaged snack that I’ve mentioned numerous times before is beef jerky and today I want to highlight the absolutely amazing, zero sugar variety. Beef jerky isn’t going to be as low in calories as the seaweed, but the majority of the calories will be in the form of filling protein. Protein is the harder macronutrient requirement to hit on a daily basis when compared to fats and carbs. So this is a snack that will help you up your protein count with minimal additional calories, and protein happens to be very filling.
Like I said, the best flavor for fat loss is the original zero sugar option. The macros on this flavor truly blow my mind because it’s almost entirely made up of protein. One serving contains 13 grams of protein 2 grams of fat and zero carbohydrates.
If you eat the entire package, it’ll only cost you 160 calories and it’ll provide 30 grams of protein with 4 four and a half grams of fat. Those macros are better than most protein bars and if you are having protein bars to up your daily protein count, there’s really no reason why you can’t switch to this more enjoyable option and even if you don’t get the zero sugar original flavor, there are other low Calorie high protein beef, jerky flavors, as well as chicken turkey and ostrich jerky, that’s all available for you to choose from next. Let’s move on to popcorn the thing that makes popcorn such an excellent snack for fat loss is that it contains a lot of fiber, which is very filling and popcorn also has a low energy density.
This essentially means that you can eat a lot of popcorn and fill your stomach up while taking in very few calories. One cup of butterfree airpod popcorn only has about 30 calories. If you’re on a strict diet, you can easily cut out a small amount of sweet potatoes, brown, rice or fruit and add in some salted butterfree popcorn.
Instead, just like the seaweed it’ll satisfy that crunch sensation that many people are desperately craving on their bland boring diets. Each cup of popcorn that you have will only add about six grams of carbs, along with one gram of protein to your daily total. Another simple high protein filling snack that tastes great is deli meat.
You just want to make sure that you avoid heavily processed brands. Loaded with nitrates, nitrites and artificial ingredients, luckily, most stores now carry brands of deli meat that are much less processed instead of using nitrates and food. Coloring, more natural ingredients are used to preserve the deli meat like vinegar and sea salt. If you have a local whole foods, I recommend you try the 365 oven roasted turkey breast, because it only uses vinegar powder and sea salt as curing ingredients.
Four slices of this oven roasted turkey breast contain 12 grams of protein and less than one gram of carbs and fats. This is an even better macronutrient distribution than the zero sugar beef jerky there’s also other options like ham with very close macronutrient profiles. You can use these deli cuts to quickly satisfy your hunger instead of reaching for other high calorie low protein snack options. Moving on to a crunchy replacement for potato chips, we have baked kale chips.
These are super easy to make because they only require three ingredients. Salt, olive oil, cooking spray and kale, you would simply lightly spray an oven tray with the olive oil line it with kale sprinkle, some salt and lightly spray. On top of the kale again with the olive oil. This kind of snack will contain more calories than the seaweed, but compared to tortilla or potato chips, you’re going to be saving a ridiculous amount of calories, you’ll also be taking in a lot of filling fiber as well as nutrients.
Like vitamin a vitamin k, vitamin c, magnesium, calcium and potassium, while satisfying that same crunchy sensation. Next, we have pickles as well as other vegetables that have been fermented in brine, like peppers and even fermented. Foods like sauerkraut pickles specifically are very low in calories and carbohydrates. One mediumsized pickle will have only four calories and under one gram of carbs, just like cucumbers, pickles have a low energy density, but there’s no denying that they will add a fair amount of sodium to your diet.
Many people might be turned off by the amount of salt since it can cause weight, but the type of weight that you’ll be gaining is going to be entirely water weight. I personally don’t concern myself with water weight when I’m trying to burn fat unless it’s directly before some sort of event, where I need to be in photo shoot shape. Even if you gain water weight from eating pickles that water weight can be very quickly flushed out and it won’t prevent you from burning fat, which is the real goal. Salt also does not seem to have a clear link to high blood pressure.
In fact, some people experience a reduction in their blood pressure with higher salt intake levels. Meanwhile, for others, their blood pressure goes up with higher salt intake levels, if you’re afraid of the extra salt from pickles hardboiled eggs can make for a filling high protein snack that you can take with you anywhere. Instead, you can add a small amount of salt on your own or just eat them. Salt free one, large hardboiled egg, will have about 80 calories with 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of fat and it’ll come packed with a wide variety of healthy macronutrients.
These include choline vitamin d, vitamin a iron as well as vitamin b2, b5 and b12. Eggs are also so super easy to quickly make whenever you start feeling hungry the speed that you can cook a meal and crush your hunger is vital, because the longer time frame that you spend feeling really hungry the higher the chances are that you’ll grab a snack Or food – that’s loaded with calories, because when you get hungry, your mind starts looking for the highest bang for your buck in terms of caloric density. That means high energy density foods that are full of fats and carbs will be at the forefront of your mind whenever you allow hunger to take over and protein isn’t, the only thing that can crush hunger. Fruit is another excellent snack and many people are afraid of eating fruit because of the simple sugar fructose that’s found within honestly.
Fruit is very rarely the food group that’s actually making someone fat or preventing them from losing body fat. Instead, it’s usually something else in your diet and the fruit gets the bad rap. The exception to this is if you’re, making giant fruit smoothies made entirely out of fruit with no vegetables and simply drinking those sugar calories. But if you eat one or two servings of fruit per day, it will help satisfy your sweet tooth.
Fill your stomach and save you calories. The best fruits for fat loss are berries specifically. Strawberries, blackberries and raspberries are very low in calories and carbohydrates per one cup.
Serving strawberries, for example, only have about 53 calories per cup and they come along with plenty of filling fiber. There are also plenty of other fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melon that contain a lot of water and help fill your stomach for a very reasonable amount of calories. Another option is to combine celery with hot sauce or buffalo. Sauce hot sauce is going to have fewer calories than buffalo sauce, but since celery is virtually calorie free, it’s totally fine, if you enjoy it with some buffalo sauce, especially since buffalo sauce will usually have less than 10 calories per tablespoon anyway, which will do very little To your total caloric intake, even if you have multiple tablespoons as far as celery goes, you can have a whole cup of celery and wind up taking in less than 15 calories.
Now, with that said, some of you may not like spicy foods and instead you may prefer to have celery with peanut butter, and for that I recommend pb2 or dried peanut powder compared to regular peanut butter. You’ll save a massive amount of calories for the same great taste. Two tablespoons of natural peanut butter will hit you with over 180 calories, 60 grams of which will be in the form of fat as well as another 7 grams of carbs and 8 grams of protein.
On the other hand, two tablespoons of dried peanut powder will only have 60 calories, so that’s one third of the calories for the same great taste. In fact, I personally prefer the taste of dried peanut powder over regular peanut butter out of those 60 calories. There are only one and a half grams of fat, five grams of carbs and six grams of protein.
You simply add water and enjoy it like regular peanut butter. Another sweet tasting option. That’s actually a beverage is diet, soda diet, tea and caloriefree drinks in general.
As long as you don’t overdo it, diet drinks have proven to be very beneficial and helping people lose weight, especially if it’s the thing that’s getting you off of regular soda. Obviously, if you switch a regular can of cocacola that has about 140 calories and 33 grams of sugar for a coke zero, which has zero calories and zero sugar you’re going to cut a lot of calories from your diet, which is the key to burning fat. And I know aspartame, I get it there’s a lot of false information out there that’ll scare, the heck out of you about diet drinks. However, the fact of the matter remains that the fda and the world health organization have both concluded that aspartame is safe to consume.
As long as you don’t exceed the acceptable daily intake of 40 to 50 milligrams per kilogram of body weight, that’s based on the fact that aspartame is one of the most studied ingredients in the human diet, with more than 200 studies backing it up. In terms of its safety, to give you a good idea, just how safe you are having a can of diet coke, let’s pretend that you weigh 155 pounds or about 70 kilograms. That would mean that your acceptable daily limit would be at least 2 800 milligrams of aspartame, since one can of diet.
Soda only has about 200 milligrams of aspartame. You would be able to literally drink 13 and a half cans of diet soda before potentially exceeding your maximum recommended daily intake. One can, or one bottle of a diet. Beverage most likely will have no effect on your health at all, but it can help you enjoy your diet, a little more and it’s proven to help with weight loss so that about wraps it up.
