By The Women’s Information Network

Craving something sweet? Salty? Well fear not – we’ve got an AWESOME list of snacks under 100 calories that will help you feel satisfied!

 

You know the feeling. Your sweet tooth starts screaming for attention or your taste buds begin yearning for a bite of salty or high-fat foods. Your willpower is fighting tooth and nail. Do you satisfy your cravings or stick to your New Year’s resolution?

Luckily, this year you can kiss the willpower war goodbye. Studies show that people may actually be more successful at weight loss when they eat small meals along with a few healthy treats throughout the day, rather than those who stick to the traditional three larger meals. Small snacks throughout the day help keep your metabolism humming along, so not only do you prevent the late night overeating, but you can actually burn calories faster during the day. You can eat small portions of those irresistible foods your crave, or substitute similar foods that are lower in calories and fat.

So, cut the guilt and give into your natural urge to snack! Here is a fabulous list of snacks under 100 calories:
