Snack Attack

Courtesy of IDEA Fitness Journal

“Snacks account for about one-third of all empty calories consumed daily – 32% for women and 31% for men…”

Empty calories are ones that are void of nutritional value.  Hence the name “junk food”.

The next time you’re hankering for a snack, keep it under 200 calories and aim for a combination of protein, fat and carbohydrates.  You’ll top off your tank without blowing your healthy eating plan.

Now go run!

Keli 🙂
