Want to know how our personal trainers keep their energy levels high and their food cravings at bay? With the help of these healthy snacks, that’s how…


“Unsalted almonds are a great source of protein, fibre and monounsaturated fatty acids which help control food cravings.” – Omar Al-Duri,


“If I’m at the gym and need a snack I will probably grab an apple from the store next door. I try to stay organised with my food, but too often I have to rely on the great, fresh and paleo-friendly cafes and restaurants in JLT for my meals.” – Candice Ford,


“I have this recipe for what I call Protein Energy Balls – an amazing healthy post-workout snack. Here are the ingredients: 1 cup organic oats, 1/2 cup organic peanut butter, 1/4 cup honey, 1/3 cup coconut flakes, 1/3 cup ground flaxseed, 1/4 cup protein powder and 1/4 cup raisins or chocolate chips (optional). All you have to do is mix it all together and mash it into small shaped balls. No baking required! Just keep them refrigerated.” – Barry Ennis,


“My go-to snack depends on my time of day and whether it’s pre- or post-workout, but I usually keep blueberries and raspberries or walnuts and almonds close by.” – Becky Hart,,


“Protein shakes are my go-to snacks. There are a lot of protein powders on the market that blend well these days just with a hand shaker. I carry the protein powder with me, then when I’m hungry I just add water and just shake. It’s a filling snack that keeps me going between meals. There are so many options you can add to the vanilla powder to keep it interesting – date and bananas, frozen berries, peanut butter, cocoa and banana, yogurt and flaxseeds… the possibilities are endless!” – Amy Saunders,
