In the latest edition of 'Runner's World' magazine, they recommend the Be Natural Trail Bars over other muesli bars such as uncle toby's or the k-twist bars etc. Low in fat and sugar.

I found a box at my Safeway. Forget the price - but $3 something for 6 bars. I got the honey nut variety. Yummo!

Air-popped pop corn and rice crackers are good alternatives to chips and butter pop corn.

I like sugar free jelly - on weight watchers it's a "free" food

It's a bit of trial and error to see what works for you. I like to have a variety of textures and flavours eg. apple, peach, celery stick and carrot. I find if I have a bag of grapes open in the fridge at eye level, when I'm in one of those moods to pick I automatically eat a few grapes. This gives me time to realise, oops I'm picking, before I eat anything too devastating.

Fruit, yoghurt, or both together (because fruit on its own does nothing but make me even hungrier!!!), rice cakes/crackers with tuna/cheese/ham/tomato/lite philli, dry cereal, a small tin of baked beans/spaghetti...

Various cup-a-soup. The Country Cup Pasta (Spinach and Ricotta) is soooo yummy and only 100cal!

4 x 98% Fat Free Cruskits w/ 100g Sweet Chilli Tuna or tuna of your choice!

Carrot Sticks with low cal dips such as Hommus, French Onion or Tskaziki

If im feeling really hungry in the arvo around 3.30 or 4 and I want something to eat but nothing to ruin my day I go for the cupa soup. Low in cal and man it fills me up. If i was to have rice crakcers or something i know i wouldnt be able to stop and would ruin my dinner.
