    The possibilities are endless depending upon what you are craving.....Sweet-fat free pudding, Edy's fruit bar. Salty/crunchy-hummus and pita chips or veggies. Special K or Fiber One bars. True hunger snack-lean turkey or ham and lowfat string cheese or laughing cow/baby bel cheese. 100 calorie english muffin with peanut/almond butter or greek cream cheese.

    I generally choose from:

    Italian Breadsticks (22 cal each)
    Pumpkin seeds (1 oz / 25g is small handful and 154 cals)
    Various other nuts and seeds (but don't overdo the quantities)
    Sweet Chilli Tiger Nuts if I need something a bit spicier (40g 217 cal)

    I use these to beat the 3 o'clock munchies at work too as there always various treats around... personally try and avoid anything with added sugar or artifical sweeteners (which includes everything labelled low or reduced fat) because it generally gives me headaches and makes me feel yuk - especially chocolate. I'm enjoying the satsumas and clementines that have just come into season here....

    My new favorite snack is Indiana popcorn FIT seasalt popcorn...about 35 calories a cup. It comes in other flavors also. No trans fats, gluten free, zero cholesterol and it doesn't taste like cardboard. ; )

    I also buy popcorners, I get the small bags, kettlecorn flavor, about 140 cals a bag...tastes like popcorn but no hulls...they are chips.

    Why not quit the habit by not having anything? Replacing the habit with healthier ( ? Lower calorie?) options is still feeding the habit. Don't eat because you're bored, find something else to do. If you're hungry, you didn't eat enough at dinner.

    I would Train myself not to eat after dinner, it's a habit. In a few weeks you won't have those cravings. I just have tea, water or maybe almond milk. If I'm too low on my caloric goal I would have a snack but that is the only reason. Probably not what you wanted to hear, sorry. Otherwise I'd save calories for this time of night and prepare snacks accordingly.

    If calories allow I like to have two pieces of toast with 1 serving of natural peanut butter.

    It's warm. It's filling. It's protein. And it's YUM!

    I'm not sure one can just simplify everything and dismiss others opinions. This forum can be used to help and motivate people or used to tear people down. I personally appreciate the positive responses and advice.

    I enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea. Caffeine doesn't affect me too much, but you may want to do decaff. It is warm and keeps your hands and mind busy.

    Cut up celery or carrots helps for my snacking. If you need real food try low fat string cheese or low fat cottage cheese. The casein proteins digest slower and if you eat cheese before bed it reduces the amount of muscle you lose at night.

    I never commented that there was anything wrong with eating PB on bread. I could very easily, but that's my opinion so I'll keep it to myself. Calling PB a protein source is wishful thinking!

    Sometimes I save half my dinner to eat later on in the evening, or I heat up leftovers.

    Just made roast chick peas. A great TV snack, if you like something savoury and crispy.

    http://www.howsweeteats.com/2012/10/exactly-how-i-roast-my-chickpeas/

    About 100 cals for 25 grams of finished product (half of a can of chick peas) if you use an oil sprayer.

    I like greek yogurt with fruit and a little bit of kashi go lean on top - it makes me feel like I'm having a dessert parfait. If I'm in a salty mood, I have a bag of 100 calorie popcorn or pretzels with hummus.

    Greek yogurt (usually Chobani), 6 oz portion, with a tablespoon or so of granola or slivered almonds in it to add crunch. The awesome part is that it's filling and it helps me get more protein and calcium in, so it's not "wasted" calories. I just usually leave a few hundred calories at the end of the day to allow for it.
