Here are our 3 favorite snacks for getting lean.

1) Carrots. Carrots are a great option to take with you on the go.  You can wash them at home and throw them into a ziplock bag. Wait until you’re really feeling hungry and then bring them out.  You’ll notice that it takes a lot of effort to chew a carrot, and so you’ll be kept busy munching while you snack. A carrot snack will force you to eat more slowly, and so you’ll probably eat less overall. Carrots are a great replacement snack for when you’re craving something crispy – like chips. They will satisfy the need for the crunchiness … but with a fraction of the calories and way more nutrition.

2 & 3) Walnuts & Bananas. Walnuts are a great snack because they’re healthy and also incredibly filling. They’ve got lots of healthy fats and tons of vitamins and nutrients. I would recommend eating the walnuts with the banana for a satiating combo that will satisfy hunger and keep you satiated for a long while.  When you combine the walnuts with the banana, you’re getting a great crunch along with the smooth, creamy texture of the banana. This is a great replacement for when you’re craving a rich, sweet dessert. For some reason eating these two ingredients together do the trick. You’ll be full for hours afterwards and benefit from some serious lean gains.

Getting toned and developing a six pack is possible if you just start doing the right habits. If you want to know how to get lean, it’s no longer a mystery.  Snack in the right way and reap the results! Know your Mission. Mission: Lean.
