Why 100 Calorie Snack Packs SUCK for Fat LossPosted by Joel Marion on August 20, 2011
Today was awesome as it mostly consisted of relaxing and eating, which necessitated a few trips to the grocery store in between.
And while at the store, I couldn’t help but notice how just about every “snack food” (you know, pretzels, cookies, crackers, chips, popcorn, etc) now comes in a “100-calorie” snack pack.
And yes, I understand the premise — a well-intentioned attempt at portion and calorie control by limiting serving sizes to a measly 100 calories a pop.
Unfortunately, 100-calorie snack packs suck, and for a couple reasons:
1. A 100 calorie snack isn’t big enough to cause satiety and a sense of satisfaction. In other words, you’re still going to be hungry after you eat it, which leads me to my next point.
2. 99% of these 100-calorie snack packs are made up of foods that possess no nutritional value and do nothing but awaken cravings for more unhealthy, processed foods. In other words, they’re complete crap.
So, not only are you still hungry – you’re hungry and you want more junk.
That’s a recipe for completely blowing your diet if I ever saw one, and we have those pesky little snack packs to blame.
That said, there’s nothing wrong with snacking…in fact, I encourage it. Between breakfast and lunch, and between lunch and dinner you SHOULD be snacking…but it needs to be with the right foods.
One of my favorite between-meal snacks is Prograde’s Organic Cravers.
#1 – They are hands down the best tasting nutrition bar on the planet made with real, organic dark chocolate. Don’t believe me? Just try them and you’ll immediately be a believer.
#2 – They contain an ample amount of healthy fats which helps to curb appetite and control cravings.
#3 – They’re convenient and ultra portable – just unwrap and enjoy.
#4 – Did I mention they are the BEST tasting nutrition bar on the planet? Yes, they taste like something you shouldn’t be eating, but they’re 100% healthy, organic, and nutritious.
So, in celebration of the Craver I’m about to eat, I asked my good friend Jayson Hunter over at Prograde to let you try the best tasting nutrition bar in the world at a discount…and for the next couple days you can!
