Snacks on a Low Carb Diet PDF  | Print |  E-mail
Everyone has heard about low carb diets but what do we know about low carb snacks?  

Eating low carb snacks every few hours during the day is beneficial to your health and well-being.  It is important to eat approximately every three hours in order to maintain steady blood sugar levels and maintain constant energy levels. Customarily we have been raised to eat three big meals per day. However, this is actually not ideal for maintaining a steady energy flow.

In addition to providing more steady energy levels, low carb snacking throughout the day also helps you digest food more easily and aids fat burning. Eating fewer big meals every day will actually aid proper digestion and promote fat loss, especially if those meals consist of large amounts of starchy, sugary carbs.   

What types of snacks can you eat? Simply choose snack food items that are low in sugars and carbohydrates. Below can be found a list of some healthy and nutritious low carb food suggestions you can eat to snack your way to weight loss and higher energy levels:

* Hardboiled eggs
* Pre-wrapped cheese sticks
* Tender roast beef cubes
* Celery sticks stuffed with all natural peanut butter
* A variety of healthy nuts and seeds
* Cheese wrapped around the sandwich meat of your choice
* Fresh, creamy plain cottage cheese
* Stuffed tomatoes
* Tuna salad mixed with chopped celery
* Bell peppers with a low carb filling

The above low carb snack suggestions are quick to prepare and easy to eat which is especially convenient if you are constantly on the go. There are many other appropriate snacks that you can look into, some more labor-intensive than others; but if you are looking for convenience, these low carb snacks are just right.  Try adding these easy snacks to your daily routine and see what difference they make in how you feel!
