Find out which low calorie snacks Dr. Oz recommends.
While the concept of a 100-calorie snack is very tempting, not all snacks are created equal. As food journalist and author Mark Schatzker discovered, highly-processed foods will make you feel hungrier faster than nutritious fiber-filled foods. In some cases, certain snack packs can actually lead to people packing on the pounds, since these pre-portioned treats give the illusion of control and lead to overeating down the road. If you are looking for a healthy snack for minimal calories, follow our formula: protein + fiber and a bit of indulgence. Here are our five picks.
Chocolate Almond Covered Strawberries
If you’re craving dessert, this is the 100-calorie snack for you. The almonds in this treat provide the protein, the strawberries provide the fiber, and the dark chocolate adds indulgence. Snack on these in between meals or enjoy them after lunch or dinner, just make sure to stick to two strawberries to not go over your calorie budget.
