Why is it important to eat snacks that have a high level of protein and fat?
Ideally, you want a snack that will keep you full until your next meal. Aim for a combination of protein and fat to give you the long lasting energy you need. The combination will curb your appetite and keep you full longer. Protein and healthy fat can come from animal sources like eggs and cheese or plant source like nuts and beans. Snacks high in protein and healthy fat that are eaten between meals can reduce hunger, prevent overeating at mealtimes, and can help maintain weight loss.
