Adding on to what others have said, you might want to also consider making the healthy snacks easier to graze on:
- have celery, carrots, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, and other veggies all cut up and in a bowl at the front of the fridge so that they're the first things you see and grab
- have some hummus or guacamole or dip made with yogurt right beside them to add some protein to the snack
- have another bowl of berries and sliced fruits ready for when you're craving something sweet
- have a bag of popcorn made up so that you can grab a handful now and then when you want something to crunch on
I am a grazer, so I plan smaller meals and multiple snacks in to my nutrition tracker. It actually shows only 3 "snacks" during the day, but I actually split them up even more than is shown, especially in the evening. Since they're all planned, it all fits in to my calorie and nutrient ranges, and this allows me to nibble when the mood strikes without worrying about it.
Good luck figuring out what will work best for you!

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
