7 Clean Eating Weight Loss Snacks

7 Clean Eating Weight Loss Snacks
Clean eating involves eating natural and whole foods, and clean eating can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. There are several different clean eating snacks that you can try which can help you lose weight, and these snacks are convenient, portable, and easy to prepare.

When you are struggling with weight loss due to bad snacking habits, try to eat as many clean snacks as you possibly can, and stick to a healthy eating plan. The HCG diet can help you change your appetites for junk food and it's a great way to get started with weight loss. But if you can't try the diet right now, try making these changes to your snacking habits and add these  clean eating weight loss snacks into your diet where you can.

Apples are a great clean eating snack

Apples are one of the best weight loss snacks, and they are approved for the HCG diet because of their high fiber content and excellent weight loss potential. Every type of apple is healthy, but you should try to get organic apples when possible. Apples help to regulate your blood sugar and they can lower your cholesterol. They are very low in calories, portable, and work perfectly as a snack.

Granny smith apples in particular are a great option for weight loss because they have a high concentration of fiber and polyphenols, which help to regulate the "€œgood bacteria"€ in the gut and limit the growth of bad bacteria. Other varieties are still healthy though, and you should look for opportunities to add apples into your diet as much as possible.

Hard boiled eggs are a perfect clean eating snack

Hard boiled organic eggs from grass fed hens are an excellent snack, and the supposed health risks of eating eggs have been found to be largely exaggerated. Hard boiled eggs are rich in protein and low in fat, and they are easy to prepare.

The cholesterol in eggs has not been found to be associated with a higher risk of developing high cholesterol. One study found that eating eggs for breakfast may lower your calorie intake during the rest of the day by up to 400 calories. Eggs make you feel fuller for longer periods of time which is why they are a great clean eating snack; just make sure that you only eat organic eggs.

Kale is a great eating snack

Kale is another great clean eating snack that can work well at helping you lose weight and maintain a healthy weight. Kale is rich in fiber and nutrients, and eating kale on a regular basis has been shown to be associated with weight loss.

Eating kale helps you to maintain a healthy weight and stabilize your weight, and if you avoid excess calorie consumption you can even lose weight by eating kale and large quantities of leafy green vegetables, while avoiding fat and starch. The fiber in kale helps to stabilize your blood sugar, and it works great in several different types of salads. Just be careful with your salad dressings and avoid premade dressings; instead make your own.

Radishes are a very low calorie healthy snack

Radishes are another great, low calorie and healthy snack. Each radish has just one calorie, and a cup of radishes has just 20 calories, so they are one of the lowest calorie snacks out there. They are high in water content so they keep you hydrated, and the high fiber content keeps you full between meals.

They are also rich in potassium and vitamin C as well as other nutrients. Radishes have a low glycemic index, meaning that they do not cause a rapid rise in blood sugar, and they are a much better option for a snack than many other foods that are high in carbohydrates.

Almonds are an excellent clean snack

You might think that almonds are not a good weight loss food because of the fact that they are high in calories, but this is not true. Organic almonds are another excellent clean eating snack, and they are rich in fiber and nutrients.

The monounsaturated fats in almonds are the healthiest fats that you can consume, and they are also high in protein so they help you avoid weight gain. Almonds are very filling and eating just a handful of them can keep you satiated between meals. Studies have found that the body only absorbs a small percentage of the calories in almonds, about 70 percent or so, which means that they are not as fattening as once thought.

Organic turkey or chicken breast is a great weight loss snack

Clean sources of protein are always a great option for a weight loss snack, because they help to stabilize your blood sugar and don't cause a rapid jump in blood sugar followed by a crash. Protein also helps your body maintain its muscle mass.

Mixing chicken or turkey breast with natural seasonings and herbs is a great and convenient weight loss snack, and you can prepare several portions of chicken or turkey breast ahead of time and have it ready as a snack during the week. Turkey and chicken breast are both low in fat which is why these cuts are preferred, but even if you prefer a higher fat cut like thighs or legs, you'll still gain many weight loss benefits.

Try organic frozen grapes to satisfy your sweet tooth

Frozen grapes are delicious and the process of freezing them creates a sorbet like texture that is very addictive. The freezing process also brings out the natural sweetness of the grapes, and it creates a low calorie snack that you can indulge in at your convenience without having to worry about your calorie intake. One whole cup of grapes has just 62 calories, and you'll find that frozen grapes are filling and satisfying.

Try frozen grapes instead of ice cream or other high fat and high sugar desserts, and in general you should try to avoid any processed foods or desserts that have a lot of calories from carbohydrates. The more clean eating foods that you eat on a regular basis, the more weight that you'll lose, and you won't have to worry as much about calorie intake.
