A fitness trainer who shed 45 kilograms by changing his exercise and eating habits has revealed the low calorie snacks that helped him succeed.
The man who goes by ‘aussiefitness’ on TikTok had plenty of options for people who struggle to give up sweets, including ‘lite’ jelly, chocolate brownies and even ice cream.
‘You have most likely heard of Halo low-calorie ice cream before but this is Kenny’s and it is from Aldi. It is half the price and in my opinion it tastes way better,’ he said.

This ice cream is from Aldi and just 75 calories per serve – and the entire tub is just 300 calories
These brownies appear to be very popular – and are also less than 100 calories per serve
There are four servings in the tub making each serve just 75 calories.
The jelly he recommends is less than 10 calories per serve.
For chocolate lovers he suggested brownies.
‘Fibre One have these amazing 90-calorie chocolate fudge brownies – they are available in six flavours as well,’ he said.
He also suggested ‘food swaps’ which can help slash the calorie content of meals.
‘These rye wraps are 71 calories, compared to normal wrap which is between 150 and 200 calories,’ he said.
Hot drinks can also go back on the menu.
‘If you love hot chocolate or coffee Avalanche has the best range of flavoured 99 percent sugar-free coffees and hot chocolates and they are around 60 calories per serving,’ he said.

But his favourite snack, corn thins, can be eaten alone or made as a meal to replace hi-calorie sandwiches or burgers.
‘There are 23 calories per corn thin and you can add a variety of different toppings depending on the flavour you want,’ he said.
The helpful hints were applauded online with over 70,000 people liking the post.
‘I definitely want to try that ice cream,’ said one woman.
‘Love this, would love to see another part in the future,’ another said.
‘Disagree with the Fibre One’s unless you have someone to lock away the rest of the box, one woman laughed.
And he has promised a video for those wanting his ‘savoury faves’.
‘I do not have a sweet tooth,’ one woman said.
Corn thins are his favourite and can be loaded up with anything to add flavour
‘Can you please recommend savoury favourites, I struggle to find anything,’ one woman pleaded.
The fitness fan has previously posted about his weight-loss journey calling out people in the industry who say certain exercises help to get rid of weight from key areas.
‘You don’t get to choose where you put on weight or lose it,’ he said.
‘The only way to lose weight from certain areas is to be in a calorie deficit and be patient,’ he said.
