Reasons for snacking

If snacking becomes a habit, it can be bad for your health, especially when it consists of fatty, sugary and salty foods!

The urge to snack can be triggered by meals that aren’t satisfying enough. But there can be many other reasons, including stress or boredom.

Snacking is also encouraged by screens: in front of the computer, TV, phone or tablet, it’s hard to resist the urge to eat!

To help you lose weight, or at least keep it off, here are 5 great snacks.

An apple and a glass of milk

According to the nutritionist, the perfect protein-fruit match is an apple and a cup of skimmed milk! This snack will give you the nutrients you need without putting on weight.
