The key to any good diet is moderation of bad foods, and that applies even when you want to indulge in some junk food. Even too much of a good thing, can still be a bad thing. Consuming over the amount of good foods for your goals can slow progress too. So the idea when consuming junk food is that you consume it with some guidelines.

Here are our Top 5 Junk food Choices:

Make at home:

Grab on the Go:

  • Rice Crispy Treats – individual to go
  • Kind Fruit and Nut Bars (super sweet or salty and still packed with protein)
  • Vegetable Chips

Our junk food list for you to make at home include variations of classic junk food that will still satisfy your craving, but won’t have you eating foods that your body might just want to reject. Putting a twinkie into your stomach after eating lean protein and green vegetables could leave you with a stomachache.

Whether making these junk food cheats or buying them, remember the less processed the better. Sweet and salty cheats don’t have to be full of “franken-foods” with unrecognizable ingredients. When choosing a junk food, try and make it yourself so you know what is going into it. The less ingredients the better.

While these foods are healthy junk foods, they are still calorically dense and easy to over consume. We highly encourage custom nutrition done by our coaches to help you add in junk food when you need it.
