What you eat between meals matters more than you think. These choices boost metabolism and help you lose weight fast.
Snacks versus weight loss
Everyone love to snack almost as much as we want to lose weight. But according to recent research, our snacking habits are adding too many calories and too few nutrients to our diets. It doesn't have to be this way, When done right, (snacking) keeps your energy levels up and gives you more opportunities to get in all your nutritional needs.
What snacks burn fat?
Eating snacks with the right ratio of nutrients, with the right calories, will help keep you body energized and help you lose weight. Protein (plus exercise) fuels the growth of lean muscle mass, which boosts metabolic rate and increases calorie burn. Fiber, meanwhile, helps improve digestion and keeps you from binging on fats and sugars.
