There are recipes for snacks that are high in protein and are effective for weight loss.

We all have unexpected hunger sensations, especially between lunch and supper. While lunch and supper are largely roti, rice, lentils and sabzi, nighttime snacks might lead to junk food and derail your weight reduction goal.

No need to quit munching. We just need a little pre-planning to have a delicious, full, nutritious, and low-calorie snack when the hunger pangs arrive between 4-6 pm.

These high-protein snack ideas are easy to make. Slow digestion of protein keeps you satiated without overeating. This lets you stick to your diet, unlike munching on manufactured foods.
