Dr. Fortino has been providing quality weight loss services to his patients for over 20 years. His staff of professionals in the South Philadelphia and South Jersey offices are ready to help you start your weight management plan now. A key element to weight management is healthy snacking.

What are healthy snacks?

Snacks that are high in fiber, good fats, and protein and low in sugar and carbohydrates are best for maximum weight loss, muscle building, and overall health. These types of snacks also have “good calories”, which means the calories are derived from nutrients. High-protein snacks (10-15 grams) are digested slowly, helping you feel fuller longer.

Here is a TOP 10 list of great snacking options that will not only increase your energy, but also help you lose weight faster. These snack options are not only great alone, but they all pair well with each other!

  1. Seeds & Nuts- Grab a handful or sprinkle on Greek yogurt or salad
    (sunflower, pumpkin, walnuts, almonds, macadamias, pecans, sesame)
  2. Nut Butters- Mix into Greek yogurt or use as a dip for fruits and veggies
    (peanut, almond, cashew, sunflower)
  3. Fermented Foods- Create kabobs, charcuterie boards, or salads
    (pickles, olives, lupini beans, giardiniera)
  4. Vegetables- Roasted, raw, baked or grilled, veggies are great snacks by themselves or mixed with various items on this list
    (celery, avocado, cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, zucchini, radish, cabbage, peppers, spinach, green beans, mushrooms, okra, edamame)
  5. Fish- Broiled, baked, grilled or poached, fish is packed with protein and can be eaten alone, used as a topping, or turned into a salad
    (salmon, tuna, sardines, prawns)
  6. Dairy- Grab a glass, make a shake or smoothie, or merely munch on some slices or wedges. Cheese is a great partner to any items on this list.
    (whole milk, half and half, real cream, mozzarella, sliced cheese, cottage cheese, ricotta, feta, goat, blue, brie, cheddar)
  7. Meat- Bacon wrapped Brie, pepperoni and cheese stackers, roast beef and American cheese roll-ups—meat provides both protein and nutrients
    (bacon, pepperoni, beef jerky, pork rinds, cold cuts of turkey/ham/chicken, roast turkey/beef/chicken)
  8. Eggs- Eggs may just be the perfect food—high in protein, potassium, and Vitamin D yet low in carbs, sugar, and saturated fats.
    (boiled, deviled, egg salad, omelets)
  9. Fruits- Fruit is packed with Vitamin A, C, E and folic acid and it also helps hit a sweet tooth. It’s the perfect partner for cheese and meat too.
    (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, coconuts, apples)
  10. Drinks- Sometimes, we can mistake hunger for thirst so try a drink first!
    (hot/iced unsweetened coffee/ black tea/ green tea, coconut water, fresh pressed veggie juice, water with berries/cucumbers/mint/lemon)
