If you are trying to lose weight you already know how much of an uphill battle it can be. It is very difficult to cut back on yummy food. In fact you might find the very idea of cutting back on tasty snack items so hard that you might not be able to bring yourself to pull the trigger on your diet plans. The good news is that there are lots of tasty alternatives to fat-drenched and calorie-packed snacks. You only have to have a plan regarding these snack alternatives. Always think in terms of substitution. Most snack items have great alternatives that taste great but won t blow you up like a blimp. Here are some great alternative snacks that cater to a wide range of tastes. Yolk-free hard-boiled eggs with hot sauce Looking for a protein-rich bite-sized snack that packs lots of flavor? By taking out the yolk out of hard-boiled eggs and giving them a dollop of Thai-style (sriracha) hot sauce you can treat yourself to a great-tasting satisfying snack that has quite a bit of protein and quite tasty to boot.
Tell yourself that since you are dedicated to eating everything on your plate you are going to put on your plate just the amount you can eat. Don t start out with a very small portion. Your mind won t accept this and you ll be back to piling on heaping piles of food you won t finish. Instead start with a small reduction maybe 5%. Finish your plate. Chances are you won t feel hungry afterward. As each passing week goes by try reducing the portions even more. Eventually you should reach a point where your main meals are a fraction of their current size. Once you reach this you can then implement the rest of the snacking strategy described below. Eat small portions throughout the day to satisfy cravings Once your main meals are reduced you can then start snacking throughout the day to satisfy any cravings. At first you are just going to redistribute the calories you saved from your main meals to your many snacks during the day. This results in little weight loss.

So things like unsalted crackers made out of whole-grain and crisp breads are also a great choice for healthy snacks. Yogurt and low-fat cheese are also a perfect choice because they contain a lot of protein and this is what keeps you sated for a long time too. Of course you can also combine fruits and yogurt for a very vitamin-rich and healthy snack. You can be very creative in combining those basic things so you don t have to abandon some variations in your snack plan. Chocolate can also be a healthy snack. Nuts aren t the only counter-intuitive choice when it comes to picking a snack that is good for you. Of course all the cream-filled kinds of chocolate aren t healthy. But pure chocolate which has a high amount of cocoa preferably above 70 % is very healthy. Cocoa contains a lot of valuable nutrients that are good for your body and overall health. You shouldn t overdo it though as overeating healthy chocolate will of course make you gain weight again.
