You've been eating healthy all day, and then that 2 p.m. snack craving hits. Instead of heading to the vending machine for a bag of chips or candy bar, stock up on these low calorie snacks to curb your hunger. That way, you'll be able to make it to dinner, and won't derail your diet.
These light, crunchy snacks come in a variety of flavors, from sweet to salty, and satisfy every craving. Plus, they are only around 60 calories per cake. Top them with peanut butter for more protein to silence your growling stomach.
Sure, chips are a tasty snack, but they aren't giving you anything nutritious. Reach for a handful of nuts the next time a snack attack hits. Almonds, walnuts, and pecans are a great snack to give you energy to get through your day.
It's hard to fit in the recommended serving of fruit and vegetables during the day. So, why not make an apple, orange, or banana your go to snack? The natural fiber will keep you full. Remember an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
We aren't talking about the movie theater kind dripping in butter, but the low-cal popcorn you can make at home or at the office. Make it on the stove or get the individual healthy pop snack packs. You'll still get the salty taste you crave with less calories.
Low-fat cheese, like a piece of mozzarella string cheese, is a great way to ward off hunger. The cheese is low calorie and has protein to keep you full.
Today we celebrate and show our appreciation for all of the fantastic fathers in our lives and we hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing day!
We're all busy these days. You know you should exercise, but how could you possibly fit another to-do into your schedule? Instead of spending hours in the gym, simply start by incorporating these tips into your day to get more movement into your life.
Park At A Distance
Instead of driving around for five minutes trying to find a parking space close to your office or grocery store, park in the back of the lot and walk. Just the few extra minutes it takes to get the door is enough to get your heart rate going and blood pumping.
Take the Stairs
Stairs can be tough, and taking the elevator is an easy way to avoid them. Instead of avoiding stairs, start avoiding elevators. Whenever possible take the stairs. Start with a few flights at a time, and as you continue to take the stairs, you'll be able to climb more.
Walk Don't Email
With all the interoffice communication available like email, telephones, and instant messaging, it's easy to sit at your desk all day. Instead of sending that email, take a walk to the person's office to deliver your message, and take advantage of the opportunity to stretch your legs and get moving.
Whenever the opportunity presents itself, stand instead of sitting. For example, when you talk on the phone, pace around, or when you watch TV, stand or walk in place during commercials.
Take Movement Breaks
Set an alarm to take a small walk at least once an hour to stretch your legs and break up your sedentary schedule. Even if it's just to the water fountain, bathroom, or a stroll around the office, you'll fit in some extra steps, and your body will thank you for it!
