On the South Beach Diet, snacking is an essential part of the game plan for weight-loss success! Why? Because snacking between meals helps keep your blood-sugar levels stable and cravings at bay. We encourage you to enjoy a healthy midmorning and midafternoon snack daily. Protein- and fiber-rich snacks, such as hummus and veggie sticks (Phase 1) or reduced-fat cheese with whole-wheat crackers (Phase 2), are examples of strategic weight-loss snacks. Here are some of our most successful South Beach Dieters' favorite snacks. Enjoy them at home or on the go!
