Best Snacks for Weight Loss
1.Eat more, weigh less
If you’re sacrificing snacks to cut calories, stop—to lose weight, you need snacks. “Snacking is an opportunity to fuel your body between meals,” says nutritionist Rania Batayneh, author of The One One One Diet. Healthy snacks ensure you won’t be ravenous come mealtime and keep your fat-burning metabolism revved up. Here are 18 nutritionist-approved choices for both store-bought and make-your-own snacks. Each nosh packs 150 to 200 calories, is filled with good-for-you nutrients, and will make you feel like your diet is about anything but deprivation.

Plus, the vitamin C in raspberries increases your body’s fat-burning ability, according to research in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. Combine a single-serving container of Greek yogurt, a cup of raspberries, and a half-tablespoon of honey.
