Take it from one who knows; hunger can really make sticking to a healthy diet difficult. Once hunger strikes, your brain goes into hunter/gatherer mode and can cause you to seek out and chow down on the nearest convenient source of calories. Inevitably, this won’t be anything that’s good for you and will very likely be one of those foods linked directly to spiking your insulin – donuts and candy for example. As you know by now, eating lots of sugar does nothing good for your health and will cause you to gain weight fast. Not only that, sugar doesn’t fill you up and can even make you hungrier – so much for that satisfying snack!
Avoid derailing your weight loss efforts by making sure you have access to a better class of snacks and treats. In addition to sugar-free foods such as celery, beef jerky, and raw nuts, which are ideal for snacking on, here are some of my favorite savory snacks and sweet treats that will make you feel like you are cheating on your diet when you are actually doing the opposite!
