Almonds, before I became allergic :(. You can get them in 100 calorie packs which are perfectly portioned. More filling than other 100 calorie packs of chips and such!

Also leafy greens, bell peppers (l eat them like they are apples). Dry, fat free spices and condiments, veggie products for protein (i'm not a vegetarian but a lot of the food is tasty and has almost no saturated fat), lean turkey, josephs oat and flax pita.

Also drink plenty of water and try to limit your soda to one serving a day (this is hard for me)

Mushrooms, cauliflower, eggplant, tomatoes help keep me satisfied.

Low-carb dieter here. If I ever find a time when I am craving sweets or bready things, avocado knocks that craving down. Lots of fat and fiber...all good.

Drinking sugar free tea has helped me not waste calories on liquids. Also eating vegetables at every meal helps a great deal. Increasing my fruit intake has helped. Eating lean proteins like tofu, salmon, chicken and turkey. Eating brown rice, quinoa and food of that nature has been really helpful.

Eliminating most sugar and white food product minus cauliflower has helped tremendously~

I have a HUGE weakness for ice cream, especially ice cream sandwiches. I like Cool Whip frozen between graham crackers or chocolate Vitatops. :)

Honestly, things like Crystal Light to add to my water help me drink it so much more. Even a little lemon or something.

I don't know how widely available they are, but Sweet Earth frozen burritos. They're all natural and all vegetarian (some are even vegan). They have about 350 calories and 20g of protein, so they fill me up, are super convenient, and taste really good - I have one almost every day at work (sometimes 2!) and I'm much less likely to eat something unhealthy.

Keeping a bag of spinach, a box of cherry tomatoes, and a pepper around at all times has really helped. If I want a quick snack, the tomatoes or pepper are good for that. If I want something more substantial, I make a salad.

They are processed, but I really like the Kellogg's Fiber Plus granola bars. They are 120 calories and have 9 grams of fiber. The biggest thing I crave is sweets, so by having one of these as one of my afternoon snacks, it helps curb the sweets cravings (so I don't go to the store and buy candy or cookies), and it helps keep my fiber levels high.

Chocolate -unsweetened cocoa powder
Kool Aid (sad, I know) - water
Desserts (cakes, cookies, etc.) - Greek yogurt parfaits w/ fresh fruit, natural peanut butter and Kashi Go Lean; high fiber, high protein cereal.
High sugar breakfast cereals- whole grain oats or overnight oatmeal
TV Dinners - home cooked meals
Lunch meat sandwiches - wraps, salads, pitas, open-faced sandwiches with fresh meat, lots of veg, fruit and nuts. (I've always eaten whole grain bread, white bread tastes like cardboard)
Packaged granola bars -homemade granola bars
Store bought muffins/baked goods - homemade and healthier, low sugar baked goods (I even make brownies and blondies from chickpeas and black beans).
Packaged snacks like crackers - veg and fruit
Chip dip - hummus or Greek yogurt dip
Frozen pre-flavoured/cooked meats- fresh meats or plain frozen meats with my own marinades, spices, herbs, etc.
Restaurant pizzas- homemade personal pizzas on a whole wheat pita (one of my fav right now is tuna, low fat chedder, apples, cucumber and mushroom).
Hydrogenated peanut butter- Natural peanut butter. OMG. I didn't know what I was missing!
Ice cream- homemade frozen Greek yogurt
Mayo- avocado mixed with Greek yogurt
Sugar or Sweeteners- mashed banana, unsweetened applesauce, sweet potato, maple syrup, honey, cinnamon, nutmeg.
Regular cheeses; low fat cheeses like part-skim ricotta, light feta, parmesan and cottage cheese. Also my trusty zero calorie parmesan and herb spice.

I eat low carb, so a lot has changed, but the final step was replacing pop with water. It was also the hardest.

In doing this and finding success what has been one food substitution or food product that has helped you stay on track?
