After losing 50 pounds and feeling happier than ever, a health and fitness guru reveals the snacks that helped her along the way.
She said cutting calories doesn’t mean you have to give up the flavors you love.
She has now lost 50 pounds, says she feels “happy and healthy” and reveals the snacks she was “obsessed” with during her weight loss journey.
Her first healthy craving was for a flavor that many people crave: Funfetti.
In a bowl, she tossed toasted coconut cashews, Nestle Toll House funfetti bites, and strawberries.
“When I just need a little something sweet,” she wrote.
Staying true to her sweet tooth, MaKayla said Barebell bars taste just like candy bars — without all the sugar.
For a savory snack, she creates a charcuterie board with Triscuit rosemary and olive oil crackers, diced Colby and Monterey Jack cheeses, and Hormet’s turkey pepperoni.
When she wants a sweet breakfast, she goes to Walmart to buy acai berry smoothie packs.
For a heartier breakfast, she eats a hard-boiled egg, halved and stuffed with cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.
The health guru’s sixth snack is one most people would never think of.
She places a slice of Colby Jack cheese on the pan and tops it with a dill pickle and two takis for a little spice.
And to round out her list, she creates a kind of healthy peanut butter and jelly with honey graham crackers, peanut butter, and a few crushed dates.
“Weight loss snacks for weight loss,” she wrote.
The spectators were happy about the exchange.
“These look amazing,” wrote one.
“Okay, but the egg is such a clever idea. I have to try,” another added.
