The most challenging part of dieting besides the cravings are the moments you find yourself at the grocery store spending way too much time looking at labels and putting items back on the shelves. When you're on a low-calorie diet, it is much easier to track calories and choose items within your calorie budget. However, when you're low-carbing the process is a bit more complex. Net carbs, grams of sugar and the calories have to be figured out. Even fruit is a scary section for low-carb eaters.
There is a plethora of portable snacks in your local grocery store you just need a little guidance to narrow down the choices to a fun, manageable list. We will help you reach your weight loss and get you out of the grocery aisle. Check out our list of The 11 Yummiest Low-Carb Snacks For Weight Loss to save you time at the store.

Cucumbers are not only a refreshing treat to have, but they make awesome "sub rolls" when carbs are a no-no. Cut the cucumber into halves and scoop out the seeds and apply some light laughing cow cheese (our personal fave is pepper jack cheese by Sargento - low calorie and no carb) and add your favorite sandwich meat and mustard. Yum!
*Tip - for it to be even more low-carb opt to have the skin off. The most carbs are in the cucumber peel.
#3 Cream Cheese, Olives & Celery Stick
