The Importance of Snacks to Weight LossWritten by Jill Fleming, MS, RD
The Importance of Snacks to Weight Loss www.ThinChoices.com Carrying snacks at all times has helped me remain in control of my appetite. I always have a box of Triscuits or Quaker Oat Squares in my car. I regularly carry apples, bananas, nuts and cans of V8 juice in my brief case. I find that if I don’t eat a snack when I first begin to feel hungry, I will get that out-of-control urge to binge within an hour or so.
After losing 40 pounds and keeping it off for 12 years, I realize that permanent weight loss is less about willpower and more about planning ahead.
I pride myself on always being in control of my appetite, but I know that this wouldn’t be possible without having access to my snacks.
Quaker has developed a new line of snacks that I have found to be very beneficial for my weight loss clients. These products are baked instead of fried, making them much healthier. They satisfy urge for something salty that crunches without excess fat and calories that are found in potato chips.
These new products include: •Quaker Quakes Rice Snacks. They come in several flavors, but Cheddar Cheese seems to be preferred flavor of my clients. One serving is 9 mini cakes with only 70 calories and 2.5 grams of fat.
