I usually don't eat a snack unless I need more calories. Then I usually opt for fat free ice cream or a bag of 100 cal. almonds.

Thank you all for your replies and so quick at that. I appreciate that. Exercised my butt off today but stil caved in with a cookie or two with my sf cappucino. That was before I read all these great replies. I will get back to you all as to how successful I have been.

I want to be a person I can look up to.

Hey Frannie: Good suggestions: I do like hummus a lot and even have a spinach artichoke one. The veggies you mentioned sound good too. I also like sf jello and choc pudding with a little sf cool whip, don't exactly know why I got away from that. Too many goodies in the house that should not have been there.

I too like the 100 calorie bags of popcorn. If not that, then I try to eat fruit. One of my favorites is frozen grapes. They are so refreshing in this hot weather.

I like Edy's strawberry frozen fruit bars. 80 cal. I save for that cool-me-down treat.

This time of the year my favorite snack is a bowl of fresh strawberries, add a tablespoon of fat free cream cheese and a package of french vanilla flavored splenda!

I am a big fan of Activia, the drink and yogurt, so I sometimes SAVE that till last with a bit of flax seed. Maybe some grapes, rice cakes, leftover bits of this and that. Just keep it small. A cuppa tea can do it for me, too. Surprise yourself!

Believe it or not, adding an evening snack is one thing I've done to help me lose weight. I always used to think it was a bad thing, and just didn't do it. Now I plan for it, and using the nutrition tracker, I can tell if I need more protein for the day, etc.

I like all the things already listed in this thread, fruit smoothies, and with the hot weather we've had lately, I've been really enjoying the occasional Skinny Cow ice cream treat - yum! That's not the highest nutritional value choice, but definitely helps keep me from feeling deprived when I'm around others eating the diet-busting version. emoticon

If you plan for a snack you can eat it guilt-free. I love the 100 calories bags of popcorn, homemade fruit salad or a granola bar and a piece of fruit.

Late night snacking is definitely a challenge. I like hummus and veggies, I use snap peas, baby carrots and bell pepper strips. I also like sugar free jello with a little cool whip on top.

Hey everyone: I just checked back into SP after a very long absence. I am having the most problem with after dinner snacks so can anyone suggest some besides going to the meal planner section. Thanks so much. I am doing much better with exercise than with late night snacking.

I want to be a person I can look up to.
