20 Filling, High-Protein Snacks to Help You Lose Weight and Stay Energized​


Alexander Mils


Picture this: You just finished a workout and your hunger is on high. The problem? You’re in between meals and meetings, with no time to cook. This scenario is exactly when a snack comes in handy, but not just any snack will do.

Here’s a look at why You do not have permission to view the full content of this post. Log in or register now. is so important in times like these—plus the best high-protein snacks to help you get enough of it.

What are the benefits of high-protein snacks?

Reaching for a high-protein snack is an important way not just to curb your hunger, but to stay fuller longer. “When you include protein with your snacks, you are going to get a lot more satiety than if you skip this important macro,” says You do not have permission to view the full content of this post.

Protein is important for recovery, too. “Not only does protein give your snack some staying power, but it also helps fuel your muscles and supply your body with important amino acids,” Manaker adds.

While protein needs vary per person, the National Academies for Medicine recommends adults get 10 percent to 35 percent of their daily calorie intake from protein-rich sources. Protein is a macronutrient—similar to carbohydrates and fiber—which means they belong to the group of nutrients your body uses the most. In other words, protein matters for everyone.

“Many people can benefit from high protein snacks—from people with hypoglycemia or diabetes to people who are focused on building their muscle mass,” Manaker points out. “A high protein snack will make a person feel satisfied for a longer period of time, possibly avoiding hunger pangs shortly after snack time.”

What to look for in a high-protein snack

When choosing a high-protein snack to keep you full and nourished between meals, Manaker suggests looking for what she calls “the nutritional trifecta”—a snack combination that includes protein, healthy fats, and fiber.

Carbohydrates can be incorporated sparingly, too. “Adding some quality carbs into the mix (like from fruit or whole grain *****ers) can help people feel fueled and energized. Yet it’s important not to overload on the carbs, since that can leave you feeling sleepy, rather than energized. “High protein snacks may help people avoid a blood sugar spike too, unlike a carb-rich snack.”

As a rule of thumb, Manaker suggests looking for snacks where 20% or more of the calories come from protein. To make snack time easier, refer to these 20 snacks next time hunger pangs strike.
