I have been on and off weight watches for about 4 years. When I follow it well, I lose. When I follow it a little, i stay the same. And when I dont follow it, its just bad all around. Anyway what I am looking for is your favorite grab and go WW snacks. I try and keep things in my desk drawer so i stay away from the cafeteria and vending machines. But I am getting bored with my old standby's of soup and canned fruit. I would love some suggestions.

There is a thread of "Foods you can't live without" that has some great ideas. I learned lots from it.

The best snack for me is fruit. An orange, an apple. I love persimmons and mangos when they're in season. I find that fruit is really filling and that it keeps me in the diet mode. My problem with snack foods is that they don't satisfy my hunger and I end up wanting more. But I will say that at night when I want to just munch, I eat the 100 calorie kettle korn.

Wheat Thins are a good snack too. maybe with a little peanut butter. If you like tea, make your own with splenda. I love the 100 cal packs too. There are so many to choose from now. Good Luck.

I happen to love the WW muffin recipe
1 box devils food cake mix
1 14oz(?) can of pumpkin (I use Libby's)
1/4 cup water

Mix well and split into 24 muffin tins (cups) and bake for 3- to 35 min at 350

They are 1.5 ponts a piece and they do help that chocolate craving! I have them on hand all the time for my husband... he loves them

Kashi bars (I like the chewy ones) they are a good source of protein and fiber, which help during afternoon "nap attacks", and they are yummy too. I think they are about 3 pts apiece?
Babybel (light)
low or non-fat yogurt

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
