The Snack that Hits the Spot

I don’t know about you but sometimes good snacking really hits the spot and the good news is that if you’re smart about what you get from the grocery store it can be a part of a healthy lifestyle. When done right, it can actually boost your muscle building and fat burning results by keeping your metabolism high and preventing your body from being greedy about storing fat for energy.

But with all this said the trick is that you need to make sure you’re not overeating over the course of the day. Your breakfast, lunch, and dinner should be well balanced and portioned, allowing you to snack in between and before bed. By snacking between meals, you’ll keep your metabolism boosted and actually burn more calories over the course of the day.

That’s right – you can even snack before bed! Just go for low-carb, high protein or high fiber options. Research is showing that this can help you burn more fat while you sleep!

But you’ve really got to get your snacks right to make this work. To give you a hand, here are 10 healthy snacks to boost your metabolism AND keep you feeling satisfied.
