Popcorn is a personal favorite low-cal post-lunch snack. You can either buy a pack of unsalted popcorn or just pop a few corns in the microwave or pressure cooker. The crunchy and savory snack goes best with green tea or black coffee.

18. In-Shell Pistachios

  • Calories: 47 (1 cup)
  • Fat: 1 g
  • Carbs: 6 g
  • Protein: 3 g

Pistachios are great for weight loss. You can have 25 unsalted in-shell pistachios to curb your hunger. They are loaded with healthy fats, no cholesterol, and a good source of vitamin B-6, vitamin A, dietary fiber, potassium, iron, magnesium, and calcium.

I recommend consuming in-shell pistachios because the process of removing the shell will slow down your consumption rate, thereby helping you avoid overeating the nuts.
