Fix up, look sharp! Top 5 healthy snacks boxers should substitute into their diet

Nutritionist Marc Fell identifies five naughty snacks and suggests similar, but healthy snacks as alternatives for each one

1. Swap fruit yoghurt with Greek yoghurt

ALTHOUGH many may believe fruit yoghurts are a healthy snack it is important to acknowledge that they contain high amounts of sugar as a typical 150g pot of fruit yoghurt can contain approximately 23g of sugar with only 5g of protein. Therefore swapping this with Greek yoghurt provides a healthier alternative as a 170g pot of Greek yoghurt contains approximately only 5g of sugar whilst also containing considerably more protein at 15g.

Next: Swap 2 of 5 – Crisps
