Skip sweets and bread-based snacks if you want to lose weight. Help your body switch over to utilizing fat as fuel with these low carb (except for the banana) snacks that help you feel less hungry. If you are allergic to nuts, you’ll need to substitute. If you are a vegetarian, you probably won’t like my posts on food. We can still be friends though. My daughter is “veg”. Sigh.
For portions, you don’t need many nuts, perhaps a handful or so. For fruit, just have one apple or one banana.
- Nuts or seeds like pumpkin or sunflower seeds
- Apple and peanut butter
- Nuts and small amount of dark chocolate
- Fruit and jerky

- Any nut and fruit combo
- Tuna salad (tuna+mayo or yogurt+pickle or HOWEVER) on lettuce leaf
- Food replacement meal bar (very sparingly! Only use in a pinch.)
- Smoked salmon and capers or pickles

Mix and match as you like!
