Sometimes, the whole world of snacking seems to be based on the one thing you’re supposed to limit: refined carbs. Even the "healthier" packaged items, like granola bars, smoothies, and crackers, are full of them. If you look past the vending machine, though, you'll find plenty of other tasty options, like these smart snacks. The best part? They're as easy to toss together as they are delicious. 
One of the reasons the Atkins Diet is so effective and so pleasurable to do is that you can have a midmorning and a midafternoon snack. That way, you’ll head off fatigue, jitters, inability to concentrate, ravenous cravings for inappropriate foods or overeating at your next meal. But not just any snack will do: They should be made up of fat, protein, and fiber for best appetite control. Vegetables (and later berries and other fruit) are fine , but always eat them with some fat and/or protein to minimize the impact on your blood sugar. These snacks can be assembled in minutes and are perfectly portable. Keep the ingredients on hand at home or in your office so a satisfying and low-carb snack is always available when hunger strikes.

If you are choosing to try a low carb diet, then traditional sugar is off the list. Of course, you may know by now that there are so many sweetener options that are low carb diet approved. So when you are feeling the need for sweet, you can easily reach for one of these! In fact, you can find many recipes for sweet, low carb treats below which we will talk about even more soon!
We all know fat is more filling than carbs, but every now and then you get a hankering for something to snack on and you NEED some low carb snacks. Whether it’s salty, sweet or frosty, we all need a moment to enjoy something in between meals. Being on a diet shouldn’t mean all snacks are thrown out the window, being on a diet means learning what your body needs and how to best provide for it. If your body is craving something salty, there are ways of indulging without setting yourself back. There are ways of eating even brownies and cakes that won’t undo all your progress.
If you’re looking to increase healthy fats, these low-carb fat bombs can help.

Coconut cream, butter, oil and other byproducts are an excellent source of healthy fats, and you don’t have to fear coconut’s saturated fat content.

Hi Bonnie. Yeah, added sugar in lunch meat is something to watch out for sure, great point. I have been able to find some here and there with no added sugar at all. Many times I’ve seen when it does contain sugar it is only 1-2 grams. So 6 slices for example might just be one gram of carbs. It really depends on how strict you are eating keto. Some people would completely avoid it because the sugar is technically not keto, other people might just look at it with a carb standpoint only. Very important to look out for though, especially for labels that say “sweet”, “honey”. etc. I typically avoid those ones all together.
When you cut processed foods from your diet in an effort to eliminate carbs, you will also be drastically reducing your sodium intake without even realizing it. All those bags of chips and packaged bars you use to love are gone due to your low carb diet and with them went your daily intake of salt. So, of course, your body is asking you for salt, you just took a lot of it away!

When starting a diet, it is likely that your body will be deprived of something essential that you need. This is simply because you are changing the way that you eat and you may not have worked out all the little nuances of your diet yet. If you use to get a lot of your daily intake of fiber from fruit, for example, your new diet may not allow so much fruit. Therefore, your fiber intake will decrease and your body will be signaling you to eat more fiber in any way it can. You’d have fruit cravings not because it is delicious but because your body needs it.

If your cravings are strong, there is a second reason why you should never ignore them or try to ignore them and that is because of your mental health. If you are dying to eat something sweet, it may be all you can think about. You wake up and really want a sweet treat. If you choose not to satisfy this craving, that doesn’t mean the idea of eating something sweet goes away. You will be dwelling on that sweet snack at lunchtime and probably obsessing over it by dinner. If you do not satisfy your cravings, they will be the only thing you can think about. If you have ever diets or restricted what you eat then you know this is all to true! Cravings don’t just go away because you “choose” not to give in to them. Instead, they linger and grow until it is all you can think about.

Several doctors who have studied the effects of a low carb diet on the body have recommended that if you consume less than sixty grams of carbs a day, you need to increase your sodium intake by two to three grams (that’s a lot when you’re talking about salt!). So when you feel that craving for salty foods coming on, don’t ignore it! Try to satisfy the craving by consuming salt in a healthy and natural way (many of the recipes below will help you!). If the craving persists, visit your doctor and see what they have to say about your salty craving in conjunction with your low carb diet.
Just because you’re on a low-carb diet doesn’t mean you have to go hungry. Thanks to their high water content, carrots are one of the most satiating veggies out there, making this grab-and-go snack pack a solid pick. Bonus: The carrots are accompanied by a package of seasoning that punches up the flavor, similar to dips and dressings, but without the excess calories or fat. If you’re worried about the sodium (one of the 50 Little Things Making You Fatter and Fatter), simply use half of the seasonings packet.

It is beneficial for your own mental health to eating a food that satisfies your craving. If it is that sweet snack that you need, a little saccharine sweetness to help calm your mind, body and belly, then allow yourself to have something sweet. The sooner you do, the sooner you can move on with your day and with your diet. No harm done! Well, that is if you choose to satisfy your craving with a healthy sweet snack that sticks to your dietary guidelines…

These grain-free pizza bites are made with a mixture of almond and coconut flours. They’re easy to customize with your favorite seasonings, though I love the suggested garlic, thyme, oregano and basil suggestion. I’d swap the pepperoni for turkey pepperoni or even add some of the optional ingredients, like mushrooms, bell peppers or olives. This is one adults and kids alike will love.
The main idea of starting a diet is to eat healthier (this is true for low carb diets and just about any other diet across the board). While many people will be able to go about their diet as planned with no complications, occasionally your body will react in an unexpected way. Alerting your doctor and working with them in order to diet in the safest, healthiest way possible is essential. By looping your doctor in on your diet you will be doing yourself a huge favor. Medical professionals will be able to offer your tips and tricks that will help you on your diet path and they will also be hyper-aware of you as a patient. This is ideal as your doctor can then monitor your progress as well as any health changes while on the diet. Yes, diets are about eliminating foods but they are also about maintaining and improving your health, Having a doctor by your side will encourage this basis of diets.
