Is Snacking Healthy?

Why Healthy Snacking Could Be Getting in the Way of Your Weight-Loss Goal

Snacking in between meals can be a great way to combat hunger throughout the day, but you have to be mindful about what kind of snacks you're consuming if weight loss is your goal. Lucy Mountain, or thefashionfitnessfoodie, posted a photo on Instagram comparing a snack to a meal. On one side, you have 80 grams of almonds versus 70 grams of salmon, 20 grams of cottage cheese, half an avocado, and one bagel — both amount to 480 calories.

The fitness influencer made her point by adding, "It's important to remember that 'Snacks' and 'Meals' are made-up terms that simply refer to portions of food eaten at various points throughout the day."

Keep in mind that snacks can be just as calorific as what you may consider a meal. Those almonds probably don't seem like much, but if you're consuming "excess nonfilling calories throughout the day," it could be why you're not losing weight. So make sure you're watching your portions and eating foods that will actually satisfy you until your next meal.
