16 on-the-go snacks that taste great and actually boost weight loss | The Sun
SNACKING often gets a bad rep. Some say it can encourage weight gain or trigger more cravings, while others may say it has a negative impact on the gut.
But, multiple studies have shown that snacking could in fact support weight loss.
Ultimately, losing weight boils down to calories in vs calories out, but if one of these healthier snacks stops you reaching for food that’s laden with saturated fat and limited nutrients, then it can only be a good thing.
Tuck into one of these, all tried and tested by us…
