Dietitian Juliette Kellow’s healthy but tasty snack ideas to help you lose weight are given in two calorie bands to suit different starting points/allowances for losing weight.

84 Snacks to Help You Lose Weight

By Dietitian, Juliette Kellow BSc RD

Choose from the approx 100 calorie Save snacks or approx 250 calorie Splurge snacks depending on the rate at which you are trying to lose weight.

If you’re also using the Lose Weight Fast Meal Plan you’ll be starting at a base of 1,150 calories which is quite a low amount for losing weight. Use the snacks to bump up your calories to 1250-1500 hundred a day, this should enable most people to lose weight at about 2lbs per week.

If you want to see exactly how many calories in the snacks, take a free trial of the WLR tools for losing weight – you can add any of the snacks to your food diary along with a choice of thousands of other foods from the food database.
