      Apples, watermelon, grapes, carrots, tomatoes, radishes, cucumber slices (pickled or not)…all of these also have fiber, so they are great for dieters. Jerky is also great. It is high in protein, so it can curb hunger in a hurry. I’d include pemmican, except that it can be over 100 calories, depending on how much is eaten.

        LOL, that’s not a snack πŸ™‚ that’s a delicious dessert that is a no-no when on a diet. Dang it! now I want cheesecake!

      I think fruits will do. But I donΒ΄t really know how much calories on it.

      Salads would be a good choice always.

      I forgot to say how many calories were in my suggestions. This is the total for a cup each of the fruits and veggies I mentioned:

      apple 65 calories
      watermelon 45 calories
      grapes 100 calories
      carrots 52 calories
      tomatoes 27 calories
      radishes 19 calories
      cucumber slices 16 calories

      One slice of cheesecake (about 1/6 of a cheesecake) has about 257 calories, @blueberry. πŸ˜€

        Hehe, you love cheesecake that much, Andria? I’m just glad it doesn’t work for me. I don’t like that base, I find it TOO sweet.

      going cold turkey will be hard, try just cutting back. My doctor told me to begin with just dip my plate as I usually would and then take off half. Next visit after I lost weight doing that he told me to up my activity, do more and put less in my mouth, so far I have lost 11 pounds, slowly but its gone. AND I did not feel deprived.

      I love my fruit, I will pig out on sweet oranges and grapes.

      An 8-ounce container of low-fat yogurt from Aldi has 70 calories – I think. Check those out if you like yogurt. I stir a little carob powder into mine. It gives plain vanilla a chocolatey flavor, and it thickens it too. Carob powder is a superfood. I recently posted on the health benefits. πŸ™‚

      Fruits are the best!

      I’d say fruit and veg would be your best option, because I doubt each serving would come up to a hundred calories. Nuts would be another good option.

      Fruits and low oil snacks(we call them as less oily namkeens)- we can use whole wheat flour for some of those.
      In Indian state of Gujarat, delicacies like Khakhra(a crunchy wholewheat snack),Dhokla(made from Flour Gram) and some others are low calories snack.
