Do you need a snack?

Snacking can be your biggest downfall when you are trying to lose weight so knowing some that will not do too much damage can be helpful

If you eat three healthy well balanced meals you probably don’t need a snack but that doesn’t stop us wanting them and some times they can become a habit.  After all we are all human. When losing weight I found quite a lot of easy snacks that I could build into my healthy eating plan that were all under 125 calories.  In this way I knew if I did want a snack I could have one without too much damage.

Some of this list are less healthy but when you feel you need a chocolate fix or a glass of wine then it is better to have one than beat yourself up. If you want to know more about losing weight without giving up everything you like then contact me at  In the meantime here are some of my snacks
