What to eat instead Let's face it, there's no substitute for chocolate. Eat a little bit of it, and savor every bite.

Ice cream

What to eat instead Try 1/2 cup of light vanilla ice cream (100 calories) topped with strawberries rather than full-fat vanilla ice cream (270 calories per 1/2 cup). Or go for Häagen-Dazs Chocolate Sorbet, which tastes extraordinarily rich but isn't: 130 calories and 0 fat grams per 1/2 cup.

Potato chips

What to eat instead Salted popcorn: 4 cups (a whole bowl!) of light microwave popcorn has just 120 calories. If you really need to have some chips, eat the baked kind with 110 calories per 1-ounce serving vs. deep-fried with 158 calories.


What to eat instead Lower-fat cookies or granola/fruit bars. Try: Whole-Wheat Fig Newtons (2 cookies have 110 calories); Healthy Valley Raspberry Jumbo cookies, which are fat- and trans-fat-free (1 cookie has 80 calories); a Nature's Carob Chip Choice Granola Bar (80 calories).

French fries

What to eat instead Homemade baked cheese fries: Spray potato wedges with olive-oil-flavored Pam and sprinkle with salt; roast at 400° F for 40 minutes; sprinkle with some reduced-fat grated Cheddar cheese and bake for 5 more minutes.
