The first food on Alex’s list was Spud Lite or Carisma potatoes, which have 25 percent less carbohydrates than other potatoes.
“You can literally eat a pound of this on 250 calories or less and it’s under 50 grams of carbs,” he said.
Second, Alex said the shrimp only has 250 calories and 52 grams of protein per 500 grams.
“The only downside is that they’re expensive, but if you can afford them, (they’re) a great source of protein,” he explained.
Country Split bread is the biggest carb for dieters, according to Alex.
“You can literally have two sandwiches — four slices are under 250 calories. You get 10 grams of protein and it’s only four grams of carbs,” he explained.
Alex said that watermelon is a healthy calorie snack for those trying to lose weight.
“Half a kilo, literally 500 grams, is only 180 calories and less than 40 grams of carbohydrates,” he said.
For dieters, Alex said Jelly Lite is a “game changer” because there are only six calories per 100 grams.
“You can eat so much without the calories,” he said.
Finally, Alex rated the FroPro frozen pizzas, especially the taste of the buffalo chicken.
