On the Fat-Burning Machine plan  you can say good-bye to tasteless plain rice cakes and no-fat, chemical-laden yogurts as your snack options. Here are 10 easy snack ideas that will have you satisfied for hours.

  • 1/4-cup (roughly one handful) raw almonds, walnuts or pecans
  • 1 to 2 slices (or 1-2 ounces) of real cheese (no “cheese product” slices) and a 70- to 100-calorie serving of crackers. Select crackers that have no added sugars or trans fats within the ingredients list. The label will include words like “partially hydrogenated oil” if the product contains trans fats – avoid these fats at all costs, they are terrible for your health.
  • Unlimited cut raw carrots, bell peppers, cauliflower, sweet pea pods, cucumber or broccoli. You can eat any of these by themselves or you can mix and match.
  • An option is to dip the veggies listed above in ¼-cup of whole fat, plain Greek yogurt seasoned with finely chopped fresh basil or dill.
  • Celery sticks with 2 tablespoons of almond butter.
  • 6 to 12 boiled and chilled (or grilled and chilled) asparagus spears or whole green beans. These can be eaten plain or dipped in the recipe shown above.
  • 1 to 2 hard-boiled eggs.
  • Peach or apple slices dipped in 1/2-1 cup of whole fat, plain Greek yogurt (Note: some people do best limiting fruit snacks to only every other day, or less, in the first three weeks of the program.)
  • 1 to 3 ounces of roasted chicken or turkey (Option: Eat this with your raw veggies instead of the dip.)
  • 1 small (6- or 7-inch size) low-carb, high-fiber tortilla covered with 1 ounce of grated cheddar cheese and 1-2 tablespoons of sugar-free salsa. Heat open-faced snack in a toaster oven or microwave until the cheese melts. Look for tortillas with no added trans fats or “partially hydrogenated” oils in the ingredient list.
