Find the right snack for you

By 9 August , 2013Diet, Uncategorized

Following of from the low carb breakfast ideas last week, this week I am providing a progressive snacking strategy that can be used for people at different stages of their weight loss programme. This is based on 2 or 3 snacks, in between 3 main meals a day. Number 1 is most suitable for someone who is holding a lot of fat around their middle and number 5 is a healthy snack for someone looking to drop a little bit of body fat or just maintaining current weight. The more insulin resistant you are the closer you start to number 1 and then every 4 weeks progress to the next snack in the list.

  • 5 – 10g Essential Amino Acids
  • 8 – 12 walnuts/ Pecan nuts
  • 25g Beef Jerky
  • 2 dessertspoons of humous and carrot or celery sticks
  • 3 Oat cakes with Almond butter

Typically, insulin resistant people tend to hold more fat on their back and love handles, however a scientific way of determining how insulin resistant you are is to undergo a Biosignature assessment.
