Can anyone recommend low calorie snacks that are filling? I am trying to lose weight fast for an upcoming trip but all the snacks I have are high calorie or are not filling. Thanks!

Eat bananas ! They are suppose to be one of the most appetite suppressing snacks ! They fill me up :)

celery is my awesome low cal snack, the pb I dip it in makes it not so low calorie but it takes a while to eat so I don't need much to feel full.

100 calorie cocoa roasted dark chocolate almonds. Pure protein bars (I usually have half), chobani greek yogurt

i enjoy apples for a filling snack, being as i do low carb i stay away from them at the moment, but otherwise love them!
May 17, 2011 8:35 AM

I've bee having Jello Temptations lately (my favorite is the French Silk Pie flavor). They are 140 calories for one snack cup. I usually have it an hour after lunch rather than the 250 calorie bottle of Coke that I crave in the afternoon. The pudding fills me up an satisfies the sugar craving. It's still 17 grams of sugar, but compared to the 70 grams in the Coke, it's a huge improvement.

Popcorn! (Homemade is best for you!)

AND when I am hungry I cut up a whole cucumber (incl skin) - there's like 45 calories in 300 grams (a lot of cucumber!).

If you slice an apple up into lots of thin slices and eat it slowly it will feel much more filling to you.

OR, take a tablespoon of peanut butter (95 cal) and cut up a ton of celery and dip tiny bits of peanut butter on the celery to stretch it out.

Apples...I never thought I'd ever say this, but I actually crave apples now :) I also think sticking to whole foods versus processed foods will keep you feeling fuller for longer.

nothing fills me up :/ but here are my favorite healthy snacks
-sliced apple with 1-2 tbsp of peanut butter on top
-G.T kombucha
-fiber one chewy bar (oats and chocolate) 140 calories, not the healthiest but sometimes I just have to eat processed food!
-non-fat cottage cheese on occasion
-whole/raw almonds! fill an empty altoid container full of almonds and thats how many almonds one should eat in a day (source: shape magazine)

Boiled eggs, apples with peanut butter, bananas, almonds and chocolate chips, granola bars, oatmeal, homemade health cookies, carrots with low fat dressing or hummus. Sliced tomato on whole wheat toast.

I try to have protein based snacks, so:

Cottage cheese
Spoon of peanut butter
Piece of cheese - about 30g
boiled egg with little light mayo & pepper

Apples.. sometimes dip with peanut butter for an extra kick.
Carrots.. sometimes with peanut butter or hummus.
Green pepper, cucumber, again with hummus.

Fruit with greek yogurt. Stay hydrated too so you aren't mistaking dehydration for hunger!

Kefir shake:

1 cup lowfat/fat free plain (unsweetened) Kefir (between 90-110 calories depending on whether fat free or lowfat)
1-2 cups fresh, organic berries: strawberries or blueberries or raspberries (switch them out not to get bored, or do a mixed berries shake)
1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 TBSP organic, raw honey (or use Splenda if you don't want the extra calories)
1 TSP Flaxseed (optional)

Blend with ice.

This keeps me full for a good 2.5-3 hours and is often what I use as a recovery drink after a long endurance ride.

Raw brocoli and cauliflower dipped in hot sauce
May 17, 2011 9:54 AM
I get the jello parfiet's sugar free only 20 cal per cup
May 17, 2011 9:58 AM
Bananas are filling, but you don't want to eat several a day.
Grapes, baby carrots, and popcorn (don't add butter and salt!) are great if you feel munchy.
Sugar free jello is great.
Laughing cow cheeses are good, too.

Thank you so very much, everyone! I am going to write these down. I need to get better food in the house and the processed junk out!
May 17, 2011 11:16 AM
thanks for asking, it gave me some additional ideas for low cal snacks, though I did have to go cut up some celery and break out the peanut butter...
