5 Snacks That Call Help Stay In The Fat Burning Zone.
1. Nuts and Seeds
One of the easiest & most enjoyable on-the-go snack is nuts and seeds: packed with nutrition including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Macadamia nuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.
2. Hard Boiled Egg
Hard boiled eggs are easy to make, portable, and incredibly delicious. The egg white is mostly bioavailable protein in favorable ratios. This protein will keep you feeling full and help stave off carb cravings.
Like avocados, these mediterranean wonder fruits are great sources of heart healthy monounsaturated fat. Olives also have a considerable amount of fiber to promote gut health and satiety.
4. Raw Cheese (Block Cheese)
Lower in casein content than pasteurized cheese, raw cheese is also more nutritious. The heat of pasteurization can destroy the delicate nutrients in the cheese. Avoid the sliced one that comes in the plastic.
5. Blueberries & Strawberries
When eaten in moderation berries can be a wonderful snack. Despite their fructose content, blueberries are high in soluble fiber which slows the absorption of carbohydrate and promotes satiety.
6. Biltong (Bonus one for South Africans)
South African dried, spiced meat, made usually of beef, venison or ostrich. It typically has no sugar and is just meat marinated for a number of days in salt, spices, and vinegar and then dried.
All these snacks are healthy when eaten in moderation, normally a handful.

It’s all about building habits.
