Last snack before dinner: Apple slices (fiber and good carb), peanut butter (protein), carrots, broccoli, and snap peas (fiber and low calorie).
Rule of thumb:
Have a snack prior to your dinner outing. This will prevent the hunger pangs and you will be more prone to making healthier food choices.
The key is to make sure your snack include a protein and a complex carb (has a high fiber content of 2.5 grams or higher).
Below is a sample of a clean snack.
Some other options are:
Cheese and whole wheat crackers
Boiled eggs and slicks of whole wheat toast
Or you can do a double whammy by eating beans or whole wheat pasta.
