I cut up some strawberries and sprinkle them with a tsp of splenda. After a few minutes they make a little juice but they taste wonderful and only 65 cal. for about 12 berries. It doesn't take that many to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Sugar-free / fat-free pudding is my go-to sweet snack. It's only 60 calories a container, and if I pop it in the microwave for only a few seconds, it's nice and warm -- tastes like it just came out of the pan!
Last night I cut up (thin slices) of apple- sprinkled with splenda and cinnamon and baked for about 40 mins. Not only did it taste good but house smelled so good and I liked the extra heat- Really cold here.
Air popped popcorn - it has I think 100 calories for 3 cups so you can make a good size bowl and still have a reasonable snack. Fiber too! I use an olive oil spray can or you can spray it with Pam and I stand over it as it comes out and flies into the bowl and spray with one hand and season with the other so it sticks while it's hot - salt, garlic powder, grated parmesan - easy clean up too.

I usally eat something light like Veggie Straws or a bowl of oatmeal.
Sugar Free pudding made with FF milk is always a way to satisfy the sweet tooth without too much damage. Sugar free Popsicles are good too! If I am REALLY hungry, a bowl of cereal always does the trick, and at about 120 cals, it doesn't hurt too much!
ideas...yes...do i do them often....sometimes. find a tea you like...i love the "i love lemon tea" and drink that. it takes a while, need no sweetening and is good. also i save points for a "controled desert" nightly. i eat an ice cream sandwich that is about 140cal. also you can count out special k crackers (they are actually very tasty) also 100 cal sandwich thin with 35 cal laughing cow lite is delish

If I've got the need for something sweet....I eat two dates. That's enough to stop the craving.

Why is it we ALL feel like we should be munching in the evening? Water helps. Handheld games maybe?
