Sometimes I get stuck in places or situations where I don't get to eat lunch or something else as planned. I carry a protein bar in my purse all the time. Then if I get tied up I can eat that so that I don't let myself get so hungry that I eat things I shouldn't or stuff myself.
My favorite protein bar is Pure Protein bars with 180 - 200 calories depending on flavor. It keeps my protein and carbs up and is easy to carry with me. I buy a box of them at Walmart in the pharmacy area. Some protein bars are higher in calories. Zone bars are also good.
I stock up my freezer with sugar free popsicles a Edy's Fruit bars at only 25 and 80 calories respectively I never feel bad about having one after dinner. It's a yummy healthy snack, and it helps curb any sweet cravings I may be having. Also it's a nice treat to look forward to for a day well done.
My favorite flavor for the popsicles is Raspberry and for the fruit bars I recommend Strawberry
I sit behind the computer all day, in order to keep myself from snacking without thought, I limit my snacks to 2. I pack them with my lunch and eat them at specific times in order to keep it under control and not consume too many empty calories. When the snacks are gone, they're gone!
Good snacks = protein bars, fruit, turkey jerky, and nuts
