While taking Phen Caps, you will experience a suppressed appetite which will help you avoid unhealthy snacking and means you will feel satisfied after eating less food. However, not all snacking is unhealthy; those who eat regular healthy snacks between meals have found it’s easier to keep off weight, and also more successful at maintaining their losses once they reach their goal weight.

Experts recommend eating every three hours in order to ward off hunger, and this approach also keeps your metabolism running at a steady rate. Not only that, but it gives you more opportunities to eat a balanced diet, as you don’t have to rely on only three meals to meet your nutritional needs. Here, we give you some examples of healthy snacks containing under 150 calories each, to give you snacks you can implement between meals that will benefit your weight loss.

1. Apple & Peanut Butter

This combination of a high-fiber and water-rich apple with a tablespoon of protein packed peanut butter will keep your hunger satisfied until your next meal. Make sure you go for a peanut butter labeled as 100% natural, as this will contain only peanuts and salt, and avoid so-called light or low-fat peanut butters. This low-fat type replaces the healthy monounsaturated fat from peanuts with diet-ruining sugar.

2. Turkey Lettuce Wrap

Wrap two ounces of thin turkey and a thin slice of provolone cheese in a large romaine lettuce leaf and keep your hunger at bay with this 130-calorie snack. This protein-rich wrap with added vitamins and calcium tastes great and will satisfy your hunger, plus turkey is high in the anxiety-reducing amino acid tryptophan, so you can relieve stress at the same time. Try to use sodium-reduced turkey slices in order to keep your sodium intake low.

3. Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

While this isn’t an everyday snack, treating yourself with three squares of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate can help satisfy your cravings and boost your metabolism with the healthiest way to eat saturated fat. The fiber-rich cup of strawberries dipped in melted dark chocolate will make you feel you’ve had something far more indulgent, but actually averages at around a total of 135 calories, keeping you on track with your diet while also satisfying your brain and your stomach.

4. Crackers & Avocado

Top five high-fiber rice and bean chips or five whole wheat crackers with a thin slice of avocado each for a creamy crunchy treat, which totals 150 calories. Avocados are a great source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and the fiber and fat content of this snack will keep you full and help curb hunger pangs.

5. Yogurt & Raspberries

Half a cup of non-fat Greek yogurt with a cup of fresh raspberries is a great low-fat, high fiber treat which will fill you up with 150 calories, offering a great alternative for when you’re craving some ice cream. Greek yogurt is also full of protein and raspberries help to manage your blood sugar levels, plus they contain essential dietary fibers that your body needs to speed up your metabolism.

6. Poached Egg on Whole Wheat Toast

Depending on the brand of bread you choose, the toast can contain as little as 50 calories, and combined with the poached egg equals a total of 120 calories. This snack is full of dietary fiber, whole grains, protein and many vitamins such as fat-burning choline and essential B vitamins.

7. Peppers & Hummus

Dip a cupful of sliced yellow, red and green bell peppers into 3 tbsp hummus and keep yourself satisfied until your next meal for 150 calories. Sweet and crunchy bell peppers in a rainbow of colors provide lots of vitamin A and C, a good amount of fiber, and special heat-generating substances which fire up your metabolism for around 20 minutes after eating them.

Hummus is a great source of fiber and protein, plus, like turkey, it contains tryptophan, which will help you feel calm, reduce stress and manage anxiety levels. Some brands also contain omega 3, which is shown to aid weight loss as well as being good for your heart.

8. Fruit & Nut Mix

At between 3 and 3.5 calories each, you can eat around 45 pistachios for 150 calories, and having to remove the shells slows you down so you can’t plough through them mindlessly. Pistachios are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, protein, antioxidants, a variety of B vitamins, and vitamin E. If you prefer to have a selection of fruit and nuts, a great combination for less than 150 calories is a mixture of 15 pistachios, 12 almonds and a tablespoon of dried Tibetan goji berries.

Almonds have similar health benefits to pistachios, and goji berries are said to be the most nutritionally dense fruit on earth. They are high in fiber, vitamin C and many antioxidants, along with other vitamins and minerals, so this combination is a great way to help meet your nutritional needs while keeping hunger at bay.

 

Here, you have some great ideas for simple snacking solutions and all for under 150 calories. This type of nutritional guidance is exactly what you need to follow in order to lose the most weight possible while taking Phen Caps. Do you find you eat these healthy snacks often?
