Low calorie snack ideas that will help you stick to weight loss!
While in an ideal environment, simply avoiding snacking is one of the easiest and best way to lose weight. I will always stand by this strategy.
But these are different times! Home isolation and social distancing has made snacking incredibly difficult to avoid in everyone’s home right now. It’s in fact, people are relating to this so much that the funniest ‘eating all the food in your house’ memes are coming out and they’ve got me literally laughing out loud. (like this one…)
So,I wanted to make this list of my favorite snacks that are low to no calories. These snacks have helped me get through many long, lonely days.
Having this list helps so when I’m eating out of boredom, it won’t be so damaging to my weight loss progress! (I’m still in bikini prep!)
WARNING: There are low calorie processed foods that I have not been able to eat. I have come to suspect anything with fake fibers and sugar alcohols like chicory root, maltitol, mannitol, erythritol, and carrageenen wreak havoc with my digestion!! The more protein bars and diet products I ate, the worse my stomach cramping would get. But, it’s fine! I just need to stick to whole foods and I feel amazing. (and for the record, Fiber One bars are the WORST!)
So, these are the low calorie snacks I’ve been eating when I’m bored, isolated, and want to eat for non-hunger reasons.
- Carrots with light laughing cow cheese (42 calories)
- Sugar free jello (10 calories)
- Rice cakes (35 calories)
- Frozen berries (70 calories)

This will be a living list, meaning as I think of new low calorie snacks, or add some to my rotation, I’ll come back here and add them! Check back often. If you have some low calorie snacks you like, share them in the comments!
