Snacks that can Sabatoge your training

YOu work hard at boot camp, and want to spend the next 23 hrs of the day working towards your goal of weight loss. Some things that might sound like healthy choices but are hiding lots of sugar and might sabatoge your are some examples:

Granola ~ Check the label. Depending on the brand, some granola can have as much as 30 grams of sugar per serving!!

Protein Bars ~ Another one that can sound OK but some have as much sugar as a candy bar! Be sure that yours has less than 7 grams.

Bagels ~ Some can have up to 390 calories and so many carbs that will eventually turn to sugar and stored as fat!

"Veggie Chips" ~ Basically potato chips with lots of salt, fat and not much fiber

Instead of choosing those for snacks during the day....try this instead:

Celery w/ Almond Butter ~ This is a great snack, 2 T of almond butter and 4 stalks of celery...really fills you up and is super healthy

2 Hard Boiled Egg Whites w/ Slice of Ezekiel Toast ~ Egg whites give you tons of protein, fill you up and are a low calorie snack!

Low Sugar Protein Bar ~ I don't (and won't) sell any type of supplement, but when I am at the store and choosing my protein bars, I always buy "Pure Protein" bars. Around 20g of protein and 3 g of sugar.

Apple w/ Handfull of Raw Almonds ~ Don't go for the roasted or salted kind...the extra sugar and sodium is something you don't need. The bulk raw almonds are the best, and the apple will give you more fiber!
