OK. So you are on a diet and are looking for some low-calorie snacks to keep you satisfied during the day? Then get ready to take some notes! We're here to help you out and have a wonderful list prepared with diet suitable snacks that do not contain more than 100 calories per serving!
It is a common misconception that when you are on a diet you'll have to eat less than you usually do. In reality, it is all about the „what you eat“ and not the „how much you eat“.
Some things are just common sense, just as the fact that fast-food is a no-go if you are looking to loose weight. But what about the different types of foods? Are some foods better than others? The answer to that question is fairly simple and obvious: Yes! Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide information on every food available in this article, so instead, we aim to inspire you with a few healthy snacks that should work with your diet and do not exceed 100 calories per serving.
There are foods that by nature contain a low-calorie count or other characteristics that make them perfectly suitable for those aiming to lose weight. Nevertheless, keep in mind that a well-balanced nutrition is far more important than just losing weight as fast as possible. Be responsible with your body, love it the way it is and work hand in hand with it. That is the only really healthy choice there is to be made in the long run!
Once this is understood though, you will probably still ask yourself: What snacks can I eat during the day, at work, or while I'm watching a movie without having to have a guilty conscience? We present you with 10 snacks that won't ruin your diet plans and won't leave you feeling hungry:
There are many healthy low-calorie dips ready to be purchased at the supermarket. But you can also create your own, which, generally speaking, always is the best choice for a healthy diet.

So you can feel free to eat as much as you want of these goodies! Be a little more careful with the citrus fruits though – they also contain citric-acids that my not be welcomed by your body in high amounts.
