When done right, snacking can be a healthy and helpful part of losing weight. Traditional packaged snacks are often highly processed, which can spike blood sugar levels and hamper weight loss. Instead, eating mini, well-balanced meals as snacks that prioritize whole foods can help you feel more satisfied and prevent overeating. These hearty snacks provide up to 28 grams of filling protein per serving for 286 calories or less.
