Savvy snacking means strategically timing snacks throughout the day for improved concentration and reduced cravings. Snacking with the right ratio of nutrients and with the right calories, will help keep your body be energized. Protein (plus exercise) fuels the growth of lean muscle mass, which boosts metabolic rate. Fiber, meanwhile, helps improve digestion and keeps you from binging on fats and sugars.
I like to make sure I have protein and “slow” carbohydrates in all my meals and snacks. This is the secret to keeping blood sugar stable and energy high.
So while there’s no food that will literally “burn fat” while snacking, smart choices will help your body operate at maximum efficiency.
