Phase 1 Snacks

Eating snacks 3-5 times a day between meals is a great way to keep full and speed up your metabolism. If you include protein with your snacks, you will feel full longer!

Here are some phase 1 approved snacks:

-Raw vegetables – I have a low tolerance for vegetables, so I tend to stick to the same ones: celery, cucumbers, and snap peas
-Cooked vegetables – I will eat most vegetables as long as they have a sauce disguising them. Try some with cheese sauce.
-Cheese slices
-Hard boiled eggs
-Deviled eggs
-Plain Yogurt (I usually find a low carb flavored yogurt instead. I’ve found some with fewer than 8 carbs. Of course, as soon as I found them, they stopped carrying them in my grocery store! But keep your eyes peeled!)
-Half of a WellnessPro shake
-Salad – add bacon bits, cheese, and/or eggs to make it more filling
-Cottage cheese
-Beef Jerky
-Cut up sausage, or any other kind of lunch meat
-String cheese
-Sugar-free Jello

And remember to drink LOTS of water. Sometimes when you think you’re hungry, you’re actually thirsty.

If you have any other great phase 1 snack ideas, let me know!

  1. Awesome! Thanks for the list! I explained the plan to hubby last night and he is excited about loosing weight... but not so excited about dieting! It will help to tell him he can still have his beef jerky! : )
