WATCH: Eat smarter and healthier

WE find ourselves snacking almost every hour during the day and this contributes to unwanted weight gain. We go on diets and deprive our bodies of proper nutrition.

But there is a way to snack and still stay healthy and according to to www.nutritionnews.abbott

These steps will help you control your snacking habits and weight.

Count your calories: To avoid a snack attack, make yourself a small plate instead of eating directly out of a bag or a box.

Fill up on fibre: High-fibre foods include oatmeal, nuts, whole grains, hummus and vegetables. It’s good for weight-loss, lowered blood pressure and improved response to insulin.

Pick a protein: Protein goes hand-in-hand with fibre. Protein snacks includes; Greek yogurt, cheese or meats or peanut butter which can help control your hunger and  keep you full.
