There’s no need to go hungry when losing weight after pregnancy. In fact, healthy snacking is encouraged by doctors and nutritionists, as snacking on the right foods results in a healthier metabolism, more stable blood sugar and improved energy levels.
Include nutritious snacks in your healthy eating plan and you’ll soon be on your way to achieving your weight loss goal without going hungry.
Ditch the salty, overly-processed packaged snacks like crisps, avoid café nasties like sugary cakes and steer clear of lollies which have no nutritional value whatsoever.
Instead, opt for fresh, simple snacks like nuts, fruit and vegetables and reap the benefits of healthy snacking, which include increased energy levels and satiety.
