I love to get the sweet seedless watermelons this time of year and cut it up into chunks, put it in a large tupperware container and keep it in the fridge so that it's ready to snack on. This works well for cantelopes and other fruits as well.

It is good to eat up to 10 g. of protein within 30 min. If working out. My favorite way to do that is to eat low calorie string cheese. It has 9g of protein and is not only low in calories, it is portable in your workout bag and helps cool you down. I also use it to get in sufficient calcium during the day and no carbs involved.4
Get rid of anything in the pantry or fridge that is an easy snack (except fruit/veggies.) If you have to prepare a snack (cookies or whatever) you'll think about whether you REALLY want it or whether you're bored, tired, or emotional.
In the morning I cut and prepare 3 or 4 snacks for the day. I cut up carrots in fun shapes, (vary it each day), and cucumbers, celery with peanut butter inside, ect. That way when I go looking for a fast and easy snack it is right there, and it's healthy!
If i don't allow myself a snack, or try to go with out, then i end up going to a vending machine, or stopping at a store for sweets. If I allow myself planned snacks then i look forward to them.
