Satisfying Snacks

 

Snacking between meals is an important part of staying slim, say experts. Snacks help keep your blood-sugar levels steady and hunger at bay, which keeps you from overindulging at your next meal. The key is looking for foods that are both satisfying and won't blow your daily calorie budget, like popcorn and other puffy, airy foods. Next time you feel like nibbling, try one of these options:

Craving...gummy bears
Try...1 fat-free, sugar-free gelatin cup (7 calories, 0 g fat)

Craving...chips
Try...3 1/2 cups light microwave popcorn (130 calories, 5 g fat)

Craving...cookies
Try...1 caramel-corn rice cake (80 calories, 0.5 g fat)

Craving...a chocolate bar
Try...1 mug instant hot chocolate (120 calories, 2.5 g fat)

Craving...ice cream
Try... 1 container of nonfat yogurt mixed with 2 tablespoons fat-free whipped topping (70 calories, 0 g fat)
