Lots of good and healthy snack ideas here. I like nuts and seeds as well as veggies strips. I will definitely try mashed avocado for dip. Thanks.

I eat a Greek yogurt everyday (mine is 160 calories and very good for the gut), also I have made my own trail mix (I'm still working out the details of it) but it contains lots of different nuts, some wheat chex, and some dark chocolate M&Ms (just 1/2 cup is about 300 calories, but works within my calorie limits).

Remember that being at your weight and exercising is not all there is to being healthy. Don't get yourself into starvation mode! Not eating enough and/or the right things will eventually lead to illness. Start good habits now, they are much harder to break in your 50s!!

Hard-boiled eggs

I snack on cut-up veggies a lot. Not a lot of calories there, but if you dip them in hummus, you'll add a few. Cheese is a good option for something healthy that's a little more calorie-dense, as are nuts.

Hey guys! Okay so all summer I was working out and I just started insanity. I really haven't seen much of a change and I know it's my diet. I'm not eating enough and definitely not eating enough of the right stuff. It's so hard for me to not eat out in my situation and then I get to the food store and I have some ideas for snacks but I feel like I really just draw a blank. I find it hard to eat a lot too and obviously I'm not trying to eat heavier meals so I was thinking of asking for neat ideas for healthy, acceptable snacks that will boost my calories and I can deal with the main meals. I'm really scared to add more calories because I really don't want to gain weight but I'm trying to convince myself it's okay.

Anything? What do you guys snack on?
