Dill Pickles




I'm most hungry with that "gotta eat" feeling just before supper. I've found that having one large dill pickle spear helps a lot. It has no calories. It is crunchy, which is satisfying. It's big enough to take a long time to eat. Pickles are very high in sodium so that needs to be taken into consideration, but personally, I'll take the salt over too many calories.

    Pickles really work for me. The dills curb my appetite and the vinegar is goo d for you. I'm not worried about the sodium too much as I drink 94oz. of water a day and I eat a lot of watermelon in season and celery. For me it flushes every thing out. - by NORTHWESTLIFE
