9 Snacks that can hinder weight loss

Given all the factors related to satiety, we can say that the best foods to maintain satiety, are those with many fibers, as they will increase the volume when in the stomach, in addition to and those with protein and fat in their composition.

In contrast, those composed only of simple carbohydrates (mainly starches, white sugar and white wheat flour), without fiber, without fat and without protein, will be rapidly digested and gastric emptying will be much quicker, and will be easily stored as adipose tissue in the body.

Some examples of snacks that hinder satiety are:

  • Croissants

However, when this amount is very large, the rebound effect occurs and the person has a hypoglycemic crisis because the insulin was so much that all the glucose was metabolized and ended up with nothing left in the blood.

This process when it occurs in minor scale, signals to the brain that it is missing blood glucose, so "hunger" increases and we feel like eating again. So you should avoid eating snacks with just plain carbohydrates.
