Eating the right snacks can sometimes prove to be the make or break of weight loss. The wrong type of snacks can easily blow out your calorie intake for the day. A shop-bought muffin for example can contain as much as 500 calories.
If you’re serious about losing extra kilos, it’s important to plan for healthy snacks to get you through your day. You don’t want to feel deprived either, so having some really yummy low-calorie snacks prepped and ready to go will ensure you stay on track with your weight loss goals.
The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has loads of sweet and savoury snacks that are super easy to prepare. We’ve pulled together 10 delicious snacks that are all under 100 calories.

Bliss balls are a great healthy snack option. And these double chocolate bliss balls are perfect for those chocoholics among us! The recipe is completely adaptable and can be made to suit your tastes and favourite flavours. You could try adding some flavoured extract like peppermint, for an ‘after dinner mint’ chocolate; add your favourite fruit and/or nuts for a tasty and crunchy experience, or roll in cacao or shredded coconut instead of dark chocolate for an extra indulgent treat.
