OMG, I hear the same little voices!!!! Hey, there was this guy on TVO last night talking about how the food industry researches how much salt, fat and sugar they need to put into foods to make us eat as much as possible, which maximumizes their profits!!! He wrote a book about it and also interviewed a dr from an addiction centre. She finally confirmed what I have been saying about myself, that some people CANNOT HAVE ANY of foods that trigger them. It is just like smoking...can't have one.

I've known that for awhile, and try to live by it, but sometimes I don't want to believe it and want to be able to eat like the rest of the world!!! There are organizations and even here on SP sometimes, people will say "don't eliminate any foods" ...that doesn't work for me. Anyway, for example, a lady brought over some date/nut bread as a gift. It was gone by morning!!! I know there are many others who will understand what I'm talking about. It's that "getting honest" with myself that keeps me from total freedom. The honesty that says "I CANNOT HAVE ANY".

I too am better off not eating at night.

But sometimes I do, anyway. Last night I had 325g of homemade kimchi (~93 cal) and 29g of whey powder (~104 cal). Separately, not mixed together! LOL

Fortunately that's where it ended - I was satisfied. The danger of eating at night for me is that is sometimes NOT where it ends. Which is also why I have to keep trigger foods out of the house. I can hear them calling me, from inside the fridge, their little voices trailing down the hall into my bedroom...

Never, ever, EVER give up!

Homemade brownies made with whole-wheat flour, real butter, xylitol and walnuts or hazelnuts. They are better than those made with white flour and sugar. A small piece satisfies so should come in under 200 calories.
I also found a wonderful book with healthy recipes: "Raw for Dessert" by Jennifer Cornbleet
Look it up on amazon

Oolala, I remember a line from an old Cosby show. He was having to lose weight and tried a rice cake. He said the air in his mouth tasted better than that "treat".

Air is my snack of choice, but sometimes I like a cup of mocha made with coffee, 1/2 cup 1% or 2% milk ( I need the creaminess), 2 tsps. cocoa powder, 1 t. sugar and a light shake of stevia. emoticon

I like the 100 calorie parfait. I also enjoy 96% fat free kettle corn. Another thing is the 60 calorie sugar free chocolate puddings made by jello.

I am always hungry at night! emoticon

I have never been an evening snacker, for which I thank Almighty God, but my husband is. He is severely restricted by his diabetes but he has settled on a few favs, which I have to prepare because of his injury.

He likes one of those little Wasa sesame crackers with a smear of peanut butter, or 3 low fat ritz crackers with a dab of sugar free preserves. Then he'll have a 1/2 cup of fat free sugar free pudding. ( If his blood sugar is too high, he'll have sugar free jello. That stuff is free, nothing to it but taste and texture.) He says he likes the idea of a snack that requires two dishes, makes it seem like more.

OK, I have always been a late-night snacker! Now that I have reached my goal weight I am looking to maintain it so I decided to budget a maximum of 200 calories for the late night snack.
So here's a challenge for my fellow Sparkers! Tell me your favorite snacks for UNDER 200 calories!
Here is my first entry-
