I leave about about 50-100 calories per day in my diet budget for tiny treats and/or grazing. For grazing, I have things like homemade kale chips with only the tiniest touch of olive oil. I can grab a few of these to snack on and they have basically no calories.

Some of my sweet treats:

- A small handful of blueberries
- One or two high-quality bittersweet chocolate chips
- One toothpickful of Nutella

That last one is fun. Take a toothpick and run it through a jar of Nutella until the bottom 3/4" or so is covered. Put the lid on the jar, walk away, then savor the Nutella. One tablespoon of Nutella is 100 calories, so I'm guessing this particular treat has 5-10 calories max.

Does anyone else do this?

I'm a bit more naughty, but do leave calories for my evening treats, usually one of those mini choccies from a party bag. Normally 50 - 100 calories and I still cant bare to not have a little choccie fix!

trim down diet
Right, I wouldn't pay anyone. Find a plan that works and stick to it. There are lots of books at the library. Track your food on FS.
