Since most brides seem to want to lose weight for their wedding, I thought it would be fun and helpful to list your top 5 diet foods; things that actually taste good and that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating.
Here are mine to get you started:
- Kellogg’s Special K Cracker Chips – Sea Salt
- Kellogg’s Special K Cracker Chips – Sour Cream and Onion
- Kellogg’s Special K Crackers – Muti-Grain
- Yoplait Yogurt – a lot of different flavors
- Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches

Anything skinny cow is awesome.
Fage nonfat greek yogurt with fruit.
Any berry: strawberry, raspberry, blueberry.
Popcorn popped in olive oil.

No Pudge Brownies
Chobani Greek Yogurt – either the vanilla or black cheer *SO GOOD!)
Bocca Burgers on toasted multigrain bagel flats
Turkey Hill Fat-free frozen yogurt – in either Southern Lemon Pie flavor or chocolate marshmallow. Both are sufficient proof that God loves me and wants me to be happy.

I know it sounds weird but I buy wonton wrappers & spread a little Nutella on them, top with a piece of banana, wrap those suckers up & bake it for about 5 minutes – OH thank heaven. Delish. It only comes out to about 70 calories a pop as well.. score!

Very nice choices ladies 🙂
I am hoping that by posting this thread we can give others’ more choices. Dieting can become very boring, if you don’t know any alternative choices to try.

Mango – Love it!! A great dessert because it’s so sweet. Any fruit is a good option though.
Air popped popcorn. I just add a little bit of butter and a little salt. Great filling snack.
Goldfish crackers. A serving size is like 45 goldfish (or something like that). So again, something I can have a lot of without to many calories.
Cereal. Personally I love Cinnamon Life and Honey Nut Cherrios. Again, something with a little sweetness that makes a great snack.
Chicken soup. It’s cheap, easy to make and healthy to eat. I make a big pot so I have it in the house. I then use the chicken to make a healthy chicken salad with low-fat mayo and grapes and celery. Two for one there.

@Gingersnap: I had those while we were travelling through Canada and I am ITCHING for some here. We don’t sell them – just plain, sour cream & chives and salt and vinegar. I WANT POPCORN FLAVOURED THINGS.

I love using the Pepperidge Farms (or other brand) of 100-calorie sandwich thins. It’s 100 calories for both top and bottom, which makes the calorie count a little less scary on sandwiches, etc.
I love hummus and use it to dip raw veggies, and as an alternative sandwich spread to mayonnaise.
Dannon Light ‘n Fit 80 calorie yogurts in Very Cherry and Key Lime.
I also love Edy’s Whole Fruit bars. Only 80 calories and the strawberry and pomegranate flavors both taste like heaven.

I love both Skinny Cow and No Pudge!
Laughing Cow light cheese
Individual bags of Pirate’s Booty (130 cal each and the bags are so big!)
Sarah Lee 45 Calories and Delightful bread toasted with low fat peanut butter (or Nutella if I’m feeling naughty)
Air Popped Pop corn with a sprinkle of low fat parmesan (or nutritional yeast) and a spritz of butter flavoured Pam
Walden Farms No Calorie Ranch with baby carrots
Materne GoGo Squeez AppleApple (or any flavour variety) applesauce

Snack a Jacks! I admit it, I’m addicted. Not in the cute “oh i LOVE those!” way.. I’m talking about the “I just ate 10 bags of them in a row” way.
The good news is theyre only 100 calories a bag so it’s not TOO bad as far as snacks go 🙂

Hummus!!!! It is amazing power food and fills you up, tastes pretty good too. Mix it with vegetables to give them some sick. I even put it on my salad as the “dressing” of sorts to cut back of fatty oils.
Oh and Dannon low fat vanilla yogurt. With some fresh berries it made one delicious low calorie dessert.
