Who would think that indulging in your favorite foods could result in a slimmer waistline? These yummy tasting foods aren’t necessarily healthy, but they’re great alternatives to your normal indulgent treats and they won’t thwart your weight loss efforts. If you’re looking for Valentine’s Day gifts for someone who’s watching their weight, consider a basket with these treats.
Froot Loops are deliciously sweet and perfectly okay to eat once in a while while dieting. They’re not a health food (despite the fruit on the box), but they don’t have a horrible fiber-to-sugar ratio and they’re not packed with calories, either. Froot Loops can be a great, low-cal dessert.
Need something to dip your baked potato chips or veggies into? Black bean dip is a great option that tastes indulgent while being pretty healthy. Look for one that’s made with only beans and veggies. The fewer additives and extra ingredients, the better.
Bagel Bites by Ore-Ida only have 200 calories in a four-piece serving. There are far worse things that you could eat than pizza while dieting, and by having these bites, you avoid gobbling down a whole pie.
Thought you had to forgo French fries until you hit your ideal weight? No way! Ore-Ida’s steak fries have less than half the calories you’d get in a regular order of fast food fries. Snack away!
There’s no reason why you can’t enjoy food and lose weight at the same time, too! Also, a healthy, balanced diet should always include good-for-you fats, fruits, veggies and whole grains.
