    There are a lot of different things that are actually what they call negative calorie foods. Look up the list smile interesting stuff.

    Even a rabbit gets fat eating lettuce. When I was trying to lose weight I liked to keep some cheese and some plain crackers around. I found that those two items satisfied my hunger,but that I didn't have to keep eating them like you do with other , tastier snacks. Schedule a snack mid way between meals if you feel that you need one before you get overly hungry. Use whatever works for you as long as you understand that you will have to eliminate the same number of calories somewhere else.

    An apple once a day is said to be good for the health. So, let's give it a try. Apples are crunchy, healthy snack.

    The idea is to consume foods that will leave you feeling satisfied for long periods of time, foods that will not wreak havoc on your blood sugar and insulin responses. To do this stick to healthy fats for snacks, such as almonds for example. Most of the time people turn to sugary carbs or fruits that cause spikes in your blood sugar, leaving them satisfied for only a limited time. Once that spike in blood sugar comes back down it may "crash", leaving that person tired or hungry again. Another suggestion would be to make sure that you always have a chilled bottle of water with you wherever you go. Many times people allow themselves to become dehydrated, which then results in that individual feeling as though they are hungry. When in all actuality they may actually just be thirsty. Snacks work best when spread out evenly between actual meals throughout the course of the day. Hope I helped in some way.

    well, you can gain weight or lose weight eating anything depending on how much you exercise but a good, healthy snack for me is a banana. It is good for your joints and gives you a burst of energy!
