Our partners at Be Fit Food have provided us with a great list of protein packed snacks that will keep you fuller for longer and help you maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle when you’re on the go:

Wondering why protein-rich snacks are so important when you’re trying to lose weight? If you lower your carbohydrate intake and correspondingly increase protein, it will promote greater satiety, resulting in feeling fuller for longer and decreasing hunger levels. This encourages healthy weight loss, whilst maintaining muscle mass.

Our top protein-packed snacks will help you fight your cravings and keep your hunger levels at bay, whilst giving you the energy to smash your day.

How many servings of snacks you can have each day depends on what program you’re on and your level of daily exercise. If you’d like to get in touch with a dietitian for a tailored daily plan that’s perfect just for you, be sure to get in contact with the crew at Be Fit Food.
