Unexpected Snacks for Weight Loss

What Are A Few Weight Loss Snacks That Most People Don’t Think Of Or Might Not Know About? How Do They Promote Weight Loss?


Dates are rich in fibre and antioxidants. They can help reduce your appetite and unnecessary food cravings. Dates can also improve digestion and regulate excess fat removal from the body. Approximately 5 to 7 dates per day are sufficient for optimal weight loss.


Yoghurt can also be a great snack for weight loss. It contains proteins that can help with satiety. Because of the high protein content, yoghurt can boost your metabolism and helps in burning more calories. Yoghurt can stave off hunger pangs and keep you full for a long time. A daily serving of 150-200 grams of yoghurt is significant enough to help you lose weight.

Bananawith Almond Butter or Dark Chocolate

Bananas are a great source of fibre. They can be suitable for weight loss, especially when taken with almond butter or dark chocolate. Bananas slow down digestion making you feel satiated for a longer time. 1 or 2 bananas a day can help you enjoy healthy weight loss.


Popcorn is a 100% whole grain snack that is rich in fibre and low in calories. Popcorns ease digestion and remove excess fats in the body. Besides, they keep you satiated for a longer time which aids weight loss. 3 to 4 cups of popcorn daily can help you maintain a healthy weight.
