There are many snack foods out there which cause us to gain weight. We all know about pizza ice cream and candy treats. These unfortunately taste great but cause us to pack on pounds. Even though we crave these foods there are other ways around eating them.

The high protein will cause a surge in the bodies weight loss and the fiber within will only help speed up the process. You can get these in many different ways like honey roasted. Stay away from chocolate ones.
