Snacks can keep your diet on track by preventing your hunger from getting out of control. But if you don’t pick the right ones, in healthy amounts, snacks can derail your diet instead. Foods with protein and fiber make especially satisfying snacks—they help keep you full on few calories. Try carrots and hummus, nonfat cottage cheese and orange slices, plain nonfat yogurt and diced pear, almonds and raisins, or an apple with almond butter.

Do This Today: Pick a snack today with a mix of protein and fiber.
