I don't know about you but I feel more confident in my clothes when I am in shape and happy with my weight. With my busy schedule I don't work out as often as I would like to but one thing I can control is my diet, I don't always eat the most healthiest of foods but I make sure to always have enough of the following snacks for their amazing benefits and to keep my weight in balance.
1. "Raw" peanut butter (not the processed kind): beneficial in lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol. Good source of protein, fiber as well as vitamins E and B3. Since the fat and fiber in peanut butter is digested slowly, you tend to feel full longer which decreases your hunger.
Try: Peanut butter sandwiches on whole grain bread.
2. Apples: Also, beneficial in lowering LDL cholesterol. Apples are low in calories, fat and sodium. Good source of vitamin C and fiber. The Fiber in apples tends to also make you feel full longer thus decreasing your hunger.
Try: Spreading peanut butter into slices of apples.
3. Almonds: Lower LDL cholesterol as well. Good source of protein, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc and vitamin E.
Try: Unsalted Almonds. Easy snack to carry to suppress your hunger between breaks on a busy day.
