10 Healthy Snacks For Fat-Loss

Need ideas for healthy snack options for your fat loss goals? We have it all laid out here!

Healthy Snack

Before we get to the good stuff...

Let's first break down some basics before you snack away. When you snack for your fat-loss goals we need to breakdown some rules.


Rule #1: Aim to consume 2 to 3 portioned out meals per day. If the meals are portioned out correctly, then you should feel physically satisfied for 4-6 hours before your next meal.


Rule #2: Only eat when physically hungry. Let's say your first meal is at 6am and you have meetings all day and won't be able to sit down and consume your next meal until 2pm. That is a 8 hour difference, so if we are following rule #1 then a quick snack at 12pm would suffice to hold you over until your next meal!


Rule #3: A snack should consist of a smaller meal of 1-2 macronutrients out of the 3 macronutrients. If you didn't know, there are 3 macronutrients to all of the foods we consume - protein, carbs, and fats.


With that said, here are 10 healthy snacks for your fat-loss goals!


Sourdough Toast with Avocado

Sourdough Avocado Toast

Did you know sourdough is a healthier alternative to white bread? Sourdough is nutritious, delicious, easy to digest and is packed with probiotics! Once you toast your bread, slather on mashed avocado and layer with sliced tomatoes and broccoli sprouts. Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper, and don't forget to squeeze some fresh lemon juice on top! The two macronutrients here are the bread, which is your carbohydrate, and the avocado which is your fat. Bonus points for when you top with vegetable or add fruit!


Yogurt with Fruit

Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt

If you're going to opt for yogurt, do yourself a low calorie favor and stick with nonfat plain greek yogurt. Why? Because it tends to have a whopping 20g of protein per 1 cup of yogurt. For this delicious quick snack, mix 1 cup of nonfat plain greek yogurt with 2 tablespoons of monkfruit sweetener, or 1 tablespoon of honey. Top with a serving of granola and your fruit of choice!


Pretzels, Celery, & Hummus

Prezels, Carrots, and Hummus

Let's keep it simple with this snack! Pick 1 serving of a carb, like crackers or pretzels. Then pick any veggies of your choice...and as much as you'd like. Lastly, purchase a container of hummus! Dip, serve, and eat!


Boiled Eggs

Boiled Eggs

Nothing too fancy here but boiled eggs topped with salt and pepper is simple and is just plain delicious! Not to mention it is packed with protein and healthy fats. Aim for 3 eggs for a quick snack. PRO TIP: Make sure to soft boil the eggs, about 8 minutes. We find when they are overcooked and rubbery they provide less appetite satisfaction.

Old Bay Shrimp with Melted Butter

We recommend microwaving 2 tablespoons of butter in a small ramekin and adding freshly minced garlic. YUM! It is the best of both worlds when you combine protein and fats to make this the ultimate satisfying snack of all time!


Rice Cake & Peanut Butter

Rice Cake with Peanut Butter
