Low Calorie Snacks

Low Calorie Snacks
Healthy snacking can aid in weight loss by keeping your metabolism running high. Snacks help add extra nutrients into your diet, keep your blood sugar steady, and your energy levels elevated. The key is to select snacks that will fill you up without adding lots of calories. Plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains are high in fiber to add bulk without the added calories.
