25 healthy snacks you won’t regret

healthy snacks for weight lsosToday, I’m going to tell you what snacks you should eat to keep you satisfied and on the road to your fitness goals.

“What’s a good snack for weight loss?”

I get asked this question all the time. There’s so much information out there, much of it conflicting. There are too many choices and too many people saying different things. Everyone is confused. Of course, you’d just eat the donut! In hopes of bringing clarity and reducing the amount of donuts consumed per capita, I’ve created a list of 25 healthy snacks. I’ve also put the snacks into categories based on your food preferences. Enjoy!
