Which Snacks Burn Fat
Huge question… do French fries make you lose weight? That’s a stupid question and I’d appreciate it if you got the heck out of my class. HAHAHA
Seriously, what snacks are healthy and will also help me lose weight? Snacks that have the right ratio of nutrients with lower calories will satisfy your hunger without packing on the pounds. Find foods that combine protein, fiber and have small amounts of calories. These foods should have less than 200 calories with 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. That ratio of 10 to 5 with less than 200 calories isn’t easy to find but here are some amazing examples of healthy snacks that will make you lose weight just by eating them.
The mother of all your vegetarian meals, edamame is soybeans in their natural form. These perfect little snack packs are a great little treat with the perfect ratio. One cup of edamame has 17 grams of protein, 8 grams of fiber and around 180 calories. The protein will keep your hunger satisfied and the caloric intake is the size you want to lose weight.
