    There are things I normally buy, and then things I buy when I'm successfully losing...

    The ones I buy while losing are:

    Nuts (pistachios, cashews, and almonds are my go to)
    Chicken (I love meat, so having chicken now and then instead of whatever meatstrosity I would normally eat day to day seems to really help)
    Diet Soda (I know diet soda isn't healthy, but for weight loss, it helped...while losing my weight, a HUGE kicker for me was switching from regular to diet soda (kickstarted the last 80lbs of my weight loss))

    I find having those Lite Babybel cheeses handy for the odd craving. They are only 50 calories, and I can spruce them up with some olives or half an apple and be good for another couple hours.
    Sparkling water and diet soda, as others have said.

    Bagged Spinach or mixed greens
    Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
    Frozen Mixed Veggies (buy in bulk from costco)
    Fresh Parsley and Mint (for morning juice)
    Some kind of fruit- whatever I'm in the mood for usually berries or citrus fruit

    Like some of the others have said, I don't really buy into the concept of "weight loss foods," and I aim to eat a wide range of foods within my daily calorie goal.

    That said, the following vegetarian protein sources help me stay within my limit and fill me up when I'm cutting calories:

    Protein powder
    Fage Greek yogurt

    I like what you said about not buying into "weight loss foods"! Do you buy fat free or some % of fat Greek Yogurt?

    I eat the same stuff, losing or maintaining. These are three foods that are so important that I'll make a special trip to the store if we run out.

    Yogurt (whole milk)

    Chobani plain Greek yogurt
    (both of those because I have a hard time with protein)
    Reese's PB eggs (because yum)
