Munch on these goodies to fight hunger while sticking to your weight loss goals.

Trying to diet but all you can think of is food? Instead of depriving yourself, fill up on cheap, nutritious and healthy snacks that your body can’t get enough of. Try munching on:
Unsalted nuts:
High in fiber, antioxidants, protein and the 'good fats' your body needs, nuts are also carb-free!
Dates, raisins and other dried fruit:
Dried fruit is the perfect snack if you’re on the go. It tastes like candy but is full of vitamins and fiber.

Berries & fresh fruit: Goji berries contain more vitamin C than oranges, and blueberries are said to fight cellulite. Apples are great appetite depressants because of their high level of acidity. Fill up on fruit but never confuse fruit with "fruit juice." Juice is mostly sugar and contains a disturbing amount of calories.
Cucumber slices soaked in vinegar:
You'll be surprised at how great the cucumber will taste. Plus, the acidity of the vinegar will curb your appetite.
Dry air-popped popcorn:
If you can’t resist carbs, this should be your go-to snack. Without the butter and salt, popcorn is low in calories and contains a high amount of fiber.
Sunflower & pumpkin seeds:
Seeds have a high percentage of Vitamin E and are said to prevent cardiovascular diseases.
Happy dieting!
