One of the worst things about tackling any diet is dealing with the immense cravings that can come about when you go without certain foods for so long.
Snacks are often the bane of any diet’s existence, because they are small, and designed to satisfy cravings, but many are packed with calories, sugar, and fats that make them an awful thing to indulge in.
