Updated on November 27, 2019

When you are in a weight loss journey, a hard part is finding the proper snack options. Here is some food options under 100 calories.

Eating healthy is hard! Okay?!

When I hear someone saying, “Hey! I love eating healthy all the time!” I feel like losing my temper (which is not a good thing).

I know there are people who hold the courage to make the right decision about choosing healthier food options. But, as a human being, I fail to believe that they are free of unhealthy cravings, I mean at least once in a year or a life time!

And there’s one more dilemma I face all the time, like many of you I’m sure, snacking while trying to maintain a healthy diet!

I’ve struggled ( still struggling actually!) to find the best options to snack from or even tried to find the exact number of how much calories a food holds. I didn’t want to cross my daily calorie intake limit by snacking. And it is hard to do so.

Choosing the right kind of snack can also be helpful for one’s weight loss journey.

So, I’m sharing some name of foods under 100 calories, or may be 100 calories, that can be helpful for me and you too.

I know it is hard to count calories all the time. It is hard to know the exact amount of calorie a food holds.

Here’s what I do. I try to measure foods, when I’m not using my food measuring machine, by carrying them in my fist and that can be counted as one cup.

I also try to avoid processed foods like bars or whatever, because I don’t know what goes in there! The best option is eating a whole food or fruit , that can make you satisfied and keep the tummy full.

Let me know your favorite foods under 100 calories and their benefits, I’ll add it to the list! I’m also curious to know if you find your favorite one on the list above.

To do that, write down a comment below.

Let “fitness” be our goal and “health” our main priority!

Thank you for reading.

      I actually enjoy everything on your list Jannat, however, I do have a craving for dark chocolate which I cannot resist. This is a great list of snacks which are so helpful in a weigh loss plan. I shall try and replace the chocolate with a few more of your snacks (can't say it will work) but I will try. I enjoyed reading this informative article.
