Celery can be a tasty, refreshing treat, especially if you want to cut down on your snacking. It is loaded with vitamins and makes you feel full for virtually zero calories.

Celery, however, is not the only healthy snack that is ideal for weight loss. There are great foods that you can nibble on without having to worry about gaining weight. Here are four other delicious foods that are safe to snack on while you are trying to lose a few extra pounds.

Greek Yogurt

This tangy treat is marvelous for snacking on a diet. It is high on the satiety index, meaning you feel fuller with each spoonful of Greek yogurt than you would with each spoonful of vegetable broth. Because of this, snacking on Greek yogurt will actually help you cut down on your meal portions, filling you up instead with its creamy goodness.

That creamy goodness is a rich source of protein and calcium, helping you build strong muscles and bones. Natural Greek yogurt also contains 0 percent fat and 0 percent cholesterol, making it a totally guilt-free food. What’s more, it is flexible enough to be eaten in a wide variety of ways, so you will never get bored with it.

Almonds

While it is true that almonds are rich in fats, these fats are actually quite good for you. Almonds contain monounsaturated fats, which, in a nutshell, are much easier for your body to metabolize into energy. This energy can fuel the activities you do to burn the nasty saturated fats in your body, or to help clear your arteries. Almonds also contain a lot of fiber, which not only makes you feel full without really staying in your system, but it also helps keep your intestines clean.
