Find out why some healthy snacks you can pack help to burn fat.
I never leave home without snacks in my bag. If an appetite emergency strikes, I’m ready. Of course, just because I have a snack doesn’t mean I need to eat it. Munching when you’re not really hungry can rack up lots of extra calories. But judicious use of the right snacks can boost your calorie burn (every time you eat, your metabolic rate increases slightly) and even help you blast fat.

In this study, people who ate about 3 servings of whole grains a day had about 2.4 percent less body fat and 3.6 percent less abdominal fat than those who ate less than a quarter of a serving. Fiber from whole grains may help you feel full on fewer calories—and possibly fuller than fiber from other sources, such as fruit and vegetables, the authors speculated…..
