Proper Snacking Can Help You Lose Fat…

burn fat with snacksThe Fat Burner Eating Plan is about using food to lose fat and one of the most important ways to do that is to eat often.

Many people are under that false impression that in order to shed excess body fat they will need to develop the discipline to “stop snacking between meals” when in actuality the exact opposite is what works best.

In order to experience fast and lasting fat loss result you must eat at least 4-6 small meals or snacks throughout your day in order to accomplish three important things:

To keep your body in fat burning mode by creating stable blood sugar and insulin levels.

To maximize the “thermic effect of food” which is the term used to describe the energy expended by our bodies in order to process food. Each time you eat it raises body temperature increasing the rate at which your body burns fuel (calories).

To help control hunger and food cravings that ultimately cause you to binge or overeat.

Snacks between meals and eating the right combinations of food at meal time are the two most important features of the Fat Burner Meal Plan. They are proven effective methods to lose fat and keep it off.

Just as eating too many fast carbs at any given time can increase blood sugar levels and switch your body into fat storing mod, going too long without eating can have the same kind of effect. This is because having blood sugar levels that are too low poses as big a problem for your body as having blood sugar levels that are too high.

By snacking or eating often you keep your blood sugar levels even throughout the day which then keeps your body burning fat and prevents your body from going into fat storing mode further covering your abdominal muscles.

When it comes to snack time, what you eat is not nearly as important as “how much.” Your snacks need to provide enough calories to keep your blood sugar stable…but they also do not want to be so big that they cause a spike in insulin levels.

Just be sure you are paying attention to portion sizes and enjoy your snacks accordingly.  Sunflower seed or nuts for example may seem like a great healthy snack until you discover that one cup of them is actually several servings and can contain as many as 1000-1200 calories.

For the healthiest snack choice try and include a portion of protein with your fast or slow carbs.

Here’s some great examples:

Apple wedges or banana with 1 tablespoon of almond or any other butter.

½ cup cottage cheese mixed with yogurt, berries and a few nuts

1-2 hard-boiled eggs with carrot and hummus

1 slice of whole grain with nut butter and berries

Small salad with 1 oz. of chicken

Celery stick with 1 tablespoon of any nut butter

½ oz. of dark chocolate and ½ cup of plain yogurt

And, the last thing to be aware of with your snacks is to choose clean or minimally processed and refined foods to keep your diet healthy. Stay away from packaged foods in pretty boxes. The boxes may excite you but the results won’t. They contain little to no nutrition.

Whole foods without labels are always your best choices. Any portion of whole or natural food is a perfect and healthy snack.
