While some countries like the USA make snacks that are a little too hard to digest, many other countries have the added benefit of low carb foods and they offer healthy snacks as a snack. A few countries like the US are currently the first to implement foods that contain some type of protein or may lack it in the future (for example, Coca-Cola is an example of an industry company that encourages their corporate sponsorship of products with high levels of fiber). Many brands even offer a snack at lunch, however, at this time, we’ll skip the nutrition portion. So, in summary, what’s good for the health is good for the market(in the US)
What’s good for the food industry can influence the way nutrition is consumed but I personally believe it is too limited in scope. Some foods provide a balanced calorie intake that can help maintain weight and maintain optimal calorie intake. Unfortunately, many foods (and also some fats and sugar such as added sugars) also produce low amounts of carbs. Carbs should be included when you buy a whole-grain (especially if you don’t have dairy products) option because these products can have detrimental health effects. Carbohydrates help to decrease the energy expenditure, and they also help to lower your body fat. I’m not sure how effective carb-based diets are for reducing blood sugar levels but at this point, I don’t see any evidence that they have negative nutritional impact.
Healthy snack options that allow you to taste foods you buy have some of the added health benefits. For example, a sweet Potato with an apple/pear would provide a nice sweet snack with a few spoonfuls of fiber. Healthy protein-packed foods include eggs, beans, tofu, or legumes. Vegetable-packed food offers some vegetables but it needs not to contain all of them. The question people ask is, how do you determine how far along nutrition is in your diet. Do your regular fruits or vegetables have a high amount of protein and a low amount of saturated fat? Protein alone could be the answer but because most fruits and vegetables have only about 300 calories, how much would that calorie be used if all your nutrition was made up in one meal? It is really tough to tell. Protein may make you feel better about your health, but it has nothing to do with protein. For the same reasons, protein does not help to maintain lean mass. For example, one study of adults, which included dietary data from the 1950s and 1960s, found little evidence for protein and a very low percentage of calories from carbohydrates. In other words, in many cultures, vegetarian diet is the diet that works best for weight control.
Sneak Peanut Butter Cheesecake - 10 g. of peanut butter is about the same amount as one meal. If you want to save some weight, cut the chocolate and add more protein, but for the “less meat friendly” kind of snack, I suggest you avoid the peanut butter. Here’s an interesting tidbit that doesn’t explain why peanut butter does all of the things in any healthy way: There are so many amazing side effects of nuts, they cause cancer and cause obesity. I know I’m just one, but I guess it’s fair to say it’s one of the most important things about “healthy eaters”, especially eating nuts every day. Also, it will help to have healthy snacks, which should reduce your body fat.
