This Sparked Me!

Instead of snacking on high fat snacks in front of the t.v. like crisps, chocolate and cakes, every time you go for a snack replace it with a vegetable like celery or a fruit like an apple. Also did you know, because celery is so hard to chew actually eating it burns calories!!!! Plus it will satisfy your craving for snacking.

    'However, eat just celery and you'll not only be malnourished, but your metabolic rate will slow down to protect your body from your low caloric intake. So, when you inevitably get sick of celery and start eating real food, you'll pack on the pounds faster. Moreover, going for a brisk walk or for a run will burn way more calories than chomping on celery... and it's more fun!" Nutrition nibbles quote. I do eat celery for a snack, but heard of a person that only did this for her snack and gained weight because he changed her metabolic rate.
