Great article. But I don't buy them. I make my own.

I purchased them only twice in the past and I did eat several packs at one time. I don't plan to purchase more.

I will eat a packet maybe every other day. They do fill me up for close to 3 hours, which is fine. Very very rarely will I eat 2 in a day, spaced out. But right now I have 2 boxes still more than half full. They are good and it helps I don't need the chocolate ones. Limits my choices on which to choose.

I love them! I am a waitress and leae them around at work and instead of a dinner roll or frys I grab one to stop my cravings!

I do buy them from our Amish Scratch and Dent store, but I don't "abuse" them, and I try to look for items with higher fiber and protein. :-)

It is interesting to me that people would buy expense snacks and then consume two or three. It show that the answer to or issues are not outside us.

I really believe what this article says!! I bought a box of Slim Fast snack bars, they're 100 calories each (I think). so one day I was craving a piece of chocolate, and ended up eating 3 of the bars, which totally defeats the purpose!!

I used to buy the 100 cal packs. I don't any more. I do however make my own using the snk baggies. I'm a weighin' measuring fool!

I find these are much too expensive. I buy snack size ziplock bags and measure out my own snacks. I can control it better this's worth the time I take to count or measure snacks out.

You have to be careful, many of the foods listed are high in salt which will put on fluid - I can gain 4 pounds just in water weight with salty food!! I avoid it at all cost!
The little 100 cal packs are nice because they can stay without going bad and truly be for emergency only!
I do love carrying apples, carrots, bananas and raw almonds - they are always good. They satisfy the sweet and crunch that's often needed.

I love 100 calorie packs. They give me something to vanquish my cravings without leaving me with an entire bag or box of temptation!

I would lose weight simply because after I bought these I would have no money left over for other food, lol. I guess they are helpful to some people, but not me. Snack foods do not satisfy my hunger pangs, esp. in such mini quantities.

I bought a food scale at the local drug store ($9.99) and it helps me. I create my own single serving baggies of things so I have them convenient. I like to have 100 cal packs of cheerios in the car, because life can get crazy-busy. It's inexpensive, filling and nutritious, and easy to log on my nutrition page.

Snack packs work for me sometimes with nuts or foods that aren't too sweet , and have some fiber. If I buy cookies they are too sweet for me and I end up eating the whole box.
