Halloween Slimdown Day 3: Fat-Fighting Snacks!

In between meals, if I'm hungry, I like to lean toward a healthy snack. Sometimes it's hard to find things that are accessible (like a bag of chips), but are low-calorie, and fat burning. These are some simple ideas that will keep you on track!

Greek Yogurt
This yogurt is around 80 calories and tastes amazing! It's light and fluffy, yet fills you up. It is also low in fat and gives you tons of calcium! 

Just like that say, "An apple a day, keeps the doctors away!". This saying is true! It is proven that eating a daily apple can not only keep you at a steady weight, but it can also help you lose weight. Increasing your intake of fruits and veggies will force you to not eat as much junk food, plus- apples are delicious! 

Every morning, I get up, and have oatmeal for breakfast. Some people love it, some hate. I personally have grown to love it! I used to be disgusted, and now it's my go-to breakfast food. Oatmeal has natural fibers and is filling. It's low calorie: the ingredients consist of oats and water. If you want some more flavor, adding fruit such as: strawberries, bananas, or blueberries add a healthy boost!

One that is highly talked about: grapefruit. This tangy, sour, fruit, actually burns fat! This curbs cravings, and can be blended, sliced, or squeezed! It is a perfect afternoon snack. When you are hungry in between lunch and dinner- try this! 

Hope you thought Day 3 was helpful! Please leave comments and requests below! I'm trying my best to post daily, so we'll see how it goes. 
XOXO Charlotte!
