"Just beware of added sugars. It should have anywhere from 2 to 7g of sugar per serving. You've got to avoid the stuff with fruit and chocolate and honey. Add your own 'mixins' and enjoy. With plenty of single-serving options or giant tubs, it's readily available and will easily take the place of ice cream or pudding for your dessert fix." -- Cohen
"With just 120 calories per four cups of air-popped popcorn, you get a filling, high-fiber snack that also helps you stay satiated." -- Lessack
"Chips really come to mind when we think of mindless snacking. A way to replicate them is to take kale, drizzle just a tablespoon of olive oil, and put them in the oven. You get a healthy vegetable snack with the texture of chips. A splash of lime juice, some Sriracha, adds flavor for next to no calories. Kale, which is low-calorie and full of calcium, helps trigger weight loss." -- Lessack
Individual packages of oatmeal and nut butters
"For many of us, portion is the hardest thing. Individual-sized servings of snacks are very helpful. Just be wary: check the nutritional value for the amount of protein in the snack, and how much sugar is in there as well. Also note that individually portioned snacks are usually more expensive than buying the bulk size and portioning yourself." -- Cohen
