On February 21 Dr. Oz revealed 6 snacks that may help curb hunger and burn fat faster which will aide in faster more consistent weight loss.

Many people who begin on their weight loss journey would like to do so without feeling deprived of food. Sugar-free, carb-free, and fat-free diets are highly unlikely to encourage dieters to transition into a healthier lifestyle. Planning meals with the inclusion of healthy yet satisfying snacks may encourage consistent results beyond starving to fit into a great swimsuit for the summer.

1. Figs
Figs are a good source of fiber. Fiber naturally helps curb hunger which in turn keeps those extra pounds away. Figs have a sweet taste and may be a great option if you crave sweets but don’t want to load up on sugar.

2. Beans
Beans help promote good bacteria in your intestines and aide in decreasing inflammation which causes weight gain. Beans also contain soluble fiber which helps with digestion.

3. Licorice
Licorice root (not the candy) helps block an enzyme that causes fat to accumulate in the body. Licorice also helps curb cravings.

4. Watermelon
Watermelon is one of the most popular summer fruits for Americans. It has a high water content which helps keep the body hydrated, and supports a healthy metabolism. Watermelon is great on its own, in a smoothie, or salad.

5. Pine nuts
Pine nuts are high in polyunsaturated fat which helps burn calories fast. Dr Oz recommends two tablespoons three times per week.

6. Pistachio
Pistachios contain fewer calories and more potassium and vitamin K per serving than other nuts. Pistachios may help lower your cholesterol. Like most nuts pistachios are high in fiber providing the body with a feeling of fullness, resulting in a decrease in overeating.
