Healthier Snacks

  • Watch the serving size
  • Light popcorn or pretzels
  • Fruits or vegetables
  • Try jello, vanilla wafers, pudding made with skin milk or angel food cake

Many dieters give up desserts and snacks. You don’t have to give up your favorite snacks. Treat yourself to your favorites every once in a while. Just watch the serving sizes.

Instead of buying the half gallon of ice cream, go out for one cone. Then you won’t be tempted to eat more later.

Another way to watch your serving sizes is to put a handful or crackers, chips or cookies on a napkin and then put the box out of reach or out of sight and leave the kitchen. This will stop you when you’re tempted to grab more.

Try the 100 calorie packs of your favorite cookie or cracker.

If you want dessert next time you go out to eat, split it with someone.
