Tips for Choosing Skinny, Low-Calorie Lunches Under 300 Calories

1. Look at fiber count.

Fiber helps keep you full.

2. Be careful with saturated fat.

Healthy fat (unsaturated fat) is good for you. But be careful about saturated fat. It’s the unhealthy kind that you want to avoid. Many microwaveable meals are high in saturated fat (and salt).

3. Read the serving sizes.

Is a serving size half a container or a full container? Make sure to read how big a serving size is so that you don't overdo it on calorie count.

4. Get protein.

Make sure to get protein at lunch. It will help keep you full.

5. Watch out for the protein bars.

Many of the "diet" or "low calorie" protein bars have fake sugars (even though they say they are made of natural ingredients!!) and have additives to "add" fiber artificially.

Just avoid them and have REAL food instead.
