I find that if I miss my snacks between meals, I am much more likely to over eat later or grab something bad for me! Having healthy snacks to grab on a busy schedule can be tough. I keep a stash of health 100 calorie or less snacks, pre-portioned in my car (if you live in temperature extremes pack items that won't spoil or freeze), at work, and 1-2 portions in my purse. I have no excuse to eat poorly on-the-go foods or binge later!

Hi I'm the ultimate popcorn fanatic and always had to have a regular tub with butter when I went to a movie - that is until I saw a Dr. Oz show where he mentioned that the popcorn contained a whopping 12 grams of fat. So to tame my munchies I've switched to eating a baggie full of pretzels which satisfys my "crunch-meter" and it's only 2 grams of fat. I find I don't miss eating the popcorn either. enjoy!100
After you have determined that you are indeed hungry, MAKE SURE you have acceptable choices on hand - healthy nuts or seeds, fruits, veggies, hard pretzels, butter-less popcorn, etc. Then you will not be tempted to consume high calories fat-laden snacks!
