What about celery and a LITTLE bit of peanut butter on it? Kind of gives you a nut fix and celery is like free food! Also pistachios are a good choice especially since you have to work at opening them you don’t eat as much. 

You could always count out how many nuts you should eat and then put away the rest (not a bullet proof plan) but putting something away before you start eating might help a little. My weakness is soynuts. Yum!

I like roasted edamame beans. They look kinda funky but I love them.

Try eating the raw kind. I’ve done that and I definitely didn’t eat as many as if they were roasted/salted/honeyfied.

I always thought almonds were a great healthy snack, maybe just separate them into little snack bags that are 100 calories, then when the bag is done, you don’t go back for more. Having a giant tin or bag of almonds will just keep you reaching.

@arenyth:  Totally agree.  I love almonds and use them as a healthy, high protein snack, but I bring them to work in those really small tupperwares (I think they are 1/2 cup?).  I just count out a dozen.  I am always bummed when I reach the bottom of the container, but those 12 almonds do the snack-time trick!

I wouldn’t do peanut butter unless it was all natural… like Maranatha.  A lot of the commercial brands are very high in sugar.  Also, try Maranatha’s almond butter– even better for you than peanut butter!
