I have found this too! I used to have a nonfat yogurt and a piece of fruit for a snack, but then I learned that was all carbs (no fat and not much protein) so now I make sure to add in some fat by eating lowfat yogurt and sometimes throwing in some granola or a few nuts. It adds more calories, but in the long run it's good because it keeps me from munching later on.

Fats metabolize more slowly, keeping your blood sugar level longer.

Tracking my food consumption has made me realized that having a little more (good) fat keeps me satisfied and I'm less likely to crave and get snacky.
