There are so many good reasons to make healthy snacking part of your weight loss plan. A wholesome nibble can help you stay satisfied between meals, making you less likely to feel ravenous and overeat. A healthy snack can also quell cravings and ward off feelings of deprivation, helping you ignore junk foods’ siren song. The only catch? It’s not always obvious which snacks are actually satisfying and healthy.

To help you uncover some options you may not have tried before, we asked nine women who’ve each shed over 20kgs (and have managed to keep it off!) what they snacked on to lose the weight. Their suggestions for the best healthy snacks for weight loss are all delicious, filling, and serious craving crushers. Try swapping them out for your usual go-tos, and they might just help you slim down, too.
