7 Snacks That Help You Burn Fat
Not all snacks are created equal. Before you reach for that small bag of chips or candy as a little snack to “hold you over” check out these snacks that actually have been proven to turn your body into “burning fat mode”:
1. Frozen Peas & Corn – Frozen vegetables often taste better because they’re not turning into starch, like their produce-aisle counterparts. Freezing vegetables seals in their naturally sweet flavor. Half of a cup of peas has 55 calories and 3 g of fiber; the same amount of corn contains 72 calories with 2 g of fiber. The high-fiber and low-calorie-density combination means they’re filling and satisfying, and the frozen part makes them interesting.
2. Apples & Walnut mix – Apples have been shown to keep weight gain away. The best way to lose weight is to increase consumption of fruits and vegetables. That increases volume and decreases calorie density. Cut your apple up and mix it with some chopped walnuts and a teaspoon or two of maple syrup. Or eat it with a tablespoon of peanut butter to add about 100 calories’ worth of the satiating power of nuts.
