Best Snacks For Weight Loss

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Are almonds better than pistachios? Justin Dougherty puts Bobbie Miller to the test to see what snacks are best if you’re looking to drop a few pounds.

Rice Cakes are good in portions with a hearty spread on top. Researchers found these could cause excessive hunger and increased activity in craving. So it's recommended you eat just one with a nut butter spread on top to stop the craving. 

Is granola better than oatmeal? Researchers say a big bowl of oatmeal will fill you up for a fraction of the calories and fat as a small portion of granola.

Oatmeal is also said to be the most satisfying breakfast in the cereal aisle. What about Roasted Almonds or Pistachios?

If you love almonds, pick raw almonds. But pistachios are best. Why? Something called the "Pistachio effect."

Research shows the act of shelling nuts can let your body feel full 86 calories sooner than you would otherwise.
