MANILA, Philippines – Do you always feel guilty about eating snacks? Don’t worry – they can actually be good for you!
Here’s why: in between meals, snacks can help reduce cravings, raise your energy levels, and prevent overeating. So yes, a snacking habit can actually help you become fitter and healthier!
Of course, it’s important to pick the right snacks. Skip snacks which are loaded with sugar and empty calories and go for those loaded with good nutrients such as protein and fiber.
Did you know that most people need at least 25 to 38g of fiber daily? Most people get way less than that. Choosing hi-fiber snacks is a great way to meet the requirement! Psyllium fiber in particular, available in flavored and powdered food supplement form, can help improve your digestive health, reduce bloating, and in the long run, even lower your blood sugar and cholesterol levels.
