Here's a few:

Microwaved canned diced tomatoes with Hormel Real Crumbled Bacon. (Make sure you check carbs and serving size! For example, Del Monte has much more than Hunts and the organic brand in my local store is ridiculously high. Each can has 3.5 servings.)

Deviled eggs

Beef jerky

Lunch meat

Cheese sticks wrapped in lunch meat

Sliced avocado with ranch dressing

Sliced cucumbers and onions in italian dressing refrigerated overnight

Oscar Meyer hard salami and cream cheese rollups (not at work Very Happy )

Sliced cucumbers spread with cream cheese and topped with smoked salmon. I use Chicken of the Sea smoked salmon in the pouches. (Pat the cucumber slices dry with a paper towel before spreading the cream cheese on it.)

Tuna fish and mayo

Olives (10 for induction)

Any kind of vegetable you can cut up and dip in Ranch sour cream mix

GOOD LUCK!

Plan to eat your calories during your meals. If you are actually more than a little hungry between meals, you should probably plan to eat a little more. Remember, hunger is your friend. Being hungry means you are burning fat.

Snacking is for most of us what got us into this mess.

Hi Amazing Grace...

There is a topic area in this group on the 1st page there is a list of snacks that are great!... My favorite is pork rinds with tuna salad (as a dip), deviled eggs, cucumber slices w/ ranch dressing or italian dressing, jalapeno poppers.. I can go on and on..

Check out this page for some additional ideas :http://fatsecret.com/groups/low-carb-daily-check-in/Posts.aspx?t=89138

Happy Snacking! Wink

Some say snack and other say don't. Personally when I didn't snack I was legthargic and then really hungry and tended to over eat at my meals. If you are like me and need to eat smaller meals (5-6 times a day) more often then just plan those snack in like your meals (and for me planning my day as much as possible is key) and go for it. I try to not let my snacks go over 150 cals and I have others that are only 50 cals. Like anything else it's balance and moderation. Try to make then balanced just like my meals (not all one micronutrient). Kept my hunger and bloodsugar even. Never realized just how much better I felt until I fell off a bit recently. I love hard boiled eggs, hummus, apple with PB2, nuts (but really watch portions), cabot low far cheddaar, tuna, cucs or slaw mix with a bit of dressing, greek yogurt... feel free to peak into others food diaries. That's how I got ideas! Just don't look at mine for the last month. The whole year and a half before sure! It worked for me to lose 50 pounds so I'm trying to get back at it for that last 10 Smile

Thanks everyone for your great ideas!!! Since I've been tracking my meals, I realized I haven't been eating enough calories and think that having small meals throughout the day would help keep me going. Since I'm in induction, its hard to snack on the things that I usually ate like fruit and nuts so I was just looking for some fresh ideas, I'm not really creative when it comes to food! Thanks again for your inputSmile Smile

ohhh induction... OOPS!!! Ever made pepperoni chips? high sodium but just drink lots of water with them 1ol. Mini meatballs made with ground prokrinds or parm cheese and egg for a binder. The egg muffins (just eggs, meat and cheese baked in muffin tins), then of course the norm low sodium tuna, cheese, meats etc. try the website mylighterside.com... great stuff!

I usually have green beans, salads with protein, cheese and a pickle, or something else that's portion size not huge but still filling and still within the allowed foods of Induction.

I agree with thynes. I found it easier to split meals - eat at the normal times but take part of the meal and eat it as a snack later - net result is I am eating every two 2 1/2 hours and so far have not felt hungry. It may not work for everyone though.
It's a mater of choice, hard work and a bit of OCD !!

I have found a small bowl with 6 olives, 6 silver skinned (unsugared) cocktail pickled onions and 6 cocktail gherkins works well for me with a splash of tabasco. Very few calories but loads of crunch and flavour.
Keep calm and keep strong!

I like to use string cheese or those little babybel packaged cheese. At about 90 Cal, they are good for you with protein and fat to reduce your hunger. Beyond that, I keep some canned protein shakes handy.

I find the things that really cut hunger are high in protein or fiber. I really like the little individual sized cottage cheese cups. Breakstone makes them. I get the 2% milk kind and its high in protein for the number of calories it is. Getting the individual serving size ones also means I won't accidentally eat too much.

yeah, I keep going over net carbs too. This is why I am not losing weight. Every morning I say this is the day. I am going to do good all day long. And then the snacks always win. I need to be STRONGER than the snacks. I always say just one. But the "just one" turns into one dozen. Oh well, maybe tomorrow will be "the day".
