Snacking can be a valuable part of dieting schedule,regular munching keeps blood sugar levels stable and can help prevent overeating later in the day--but the extent of these benefits depends on one crucial variable: the kind of food what you put into your mouth. An idea: Nibble on nutritionally balanced 100- to 200-calorie snacks that contain some carbs, protein, and healthy fats. SkinniSnax is a healthy nutritious snack, low in calories and high in protein and fibre.  How much you eat depends on your activity level, but be sure to listen to your hunger cues. Making small changes to your diet is the healthiest and most achievable way to lose weight.Your first step is to eat fewer foods high in calories, fat, salt and sugars and swap them for something healthier, including more fruit and vegetables.  Remember, small changes can add up to make a big overall difference to your diet.

Try these small changes when you have your next meal or drink, or when you open the kitchen cupboard or fridge looking for a snack. Once you've got started, try thinking of your own healthier swaps, too. 

When buying pre-packed food, don't rely on the attractive promotional print on the wrapping, which can be misleading. Always read the calories and nutritional value of the product on the back of the packet.  You can also follow the traffic system.
